Day 60 - Weathered and Worn


We took my baby girl to the park again today and as I glanced around the park, my eyes rested on these beads. They simply slide back and forth on the rods. It filled my heart with joy watching my husband and daughter play with them together. The wear on them makes me wonder how many other parents spent time with their little ones playing there.

We have giant abacus's at parks near us too. And noughts and crosses. I took some shot just the other day (haven't posted yet). I love the editing on this.

My two boys learned to count on these whenever we went to the playground. Like the angle you took this at.

It is the simple things which bring so much pleasure.I think sometimes we grown-ups try to make life to complicated.
