Simple Ways to Amuse Children

Watching the power company in a cherry picker.
Stepping on bugs.
Climbing the neighbor's tree.
Taking off diaper and trying on panties for the first time.
Cat napping on the floor while Mama fixes dinner.
Walking on the "balance beam" sidewalk curb.
Finding the perfect rock.
Walking on a tree stump.
Studying ants in a pat of butter.

And saving the best for last:


Walking on the railroad track that runs right down the middle of the street.

Family time. It doesn't get any better than this.

Love the "stepping on the bugs" I don't know why that amuses me.

Great pictures. Great post. We used to have railroad tracks down the middle of our street but they've long since been paved over. It's neat to see what they would have looked like!

Jack adores all of those things too! Particularly the ants. LOL

Spencer looks like such a big girl in that top picture! And love the napping photo - did he really nap long enough for you to make dinner?

Cici said...

This is beautiful, Lera.

beki said...

I miss how little babies look like bugs, sleeping on their tummies like that. And how sweet that wearing undies means NO pants and a winter coat! So cute. Family time is precious and it looks like you guys have a lot of fun.

Love it when kids nap with their butt in the air.
