May 8 — The prompt from our little group of extended April Love was “play.” I have been looking to add more fun and play in my life lately. It’s one of the reasons I joined the April Love group in the first place.
I was taking a walk around our block a couple years ago and found this art work on the sidewalk:
I reminded me of when I was little and used to draw hopscotches in front of our house. I’d play for hours with the kids in the neighborhood. We also used to ride on these:
These horses were in front of a local children’s clothing store and, although the store has changed hands, the horses remain. I even let my kids ride on them!
Nowadays, my toys are a little different:
This is a grab bag stash of scrapbooking supplies I got. I love ordering the “Mystery Box” that some companies put together of their overstock. Never know what you’ll get!
This is where I go to play with my toys now! Spending all day with my friends scrapbooking is a great play date!
What about you? What does play make you think of?
