Thursday Challenge

This week's Thursday Challenge is "SPRING".



Since it has only made it up to 29 degrees here so far this morning, it just isn't feeling like spring. So I opted to steer clear of the seasonal version.

The fellow sitting atop the "spring" is my wonderful father-in-law. The photo was taken last summer, during our vacation. Though we saw a lot of great sites on our trip west, one of our favorite parts was meeting up with Rich's parents in Nebraska. (We, of course, came from NY; they came from PA.) We went to visit the area where my father-in-law grew up. Rich used to visit his grandparents during the summers as a kid. And they would go and play at this playground in the photo.

LOL, oh how cute! I have a picture of my Grandpa on one of those spring type toys at the park. It's so cute to see different generations enjoy the *classic* toys!!

Ooh, what a great interpretation of the theme! So glad you guys all got to be together last summer, sounds like a good trip.

P.S. 29 degrees is unfathomable to me right now. My air conditioning is running and its 83 degrees here, LOL!
