Afternoons, when the sun goes down just a little later
two boys on bikes whizz by
I lay in the grass, breathing in the earths smell, only a second or two
until two little legs land with a plop on my back
Hoss mama, hoss! The obligatory horse ride, the giggles
the whizz by again on the two bikes
laughing, and concentration as they get used to their new wheels beneath them
a grassy pile is gathered up on the small of my back
I lay still while she concentrates so very carefully,
continues and then in a green flurry she’s gone
whisked high up into the air by strong trusted hands
giggling again as she lands on his shoulders
the bikes slowly peddle homeward, the infectious giggles continue
and the sun drops that bit lower,
it’s time to go home.
Gorgeous words, Brydie and I love your golden first image. What a lovely day out and such precious family time xx
Such a magical way to spend the afternoon.

Oh I like that Rose…thank you.
Beautiful words and photos Brydie!
The best afternoon!
I smile at your family interlude- enjoying the sunshine, the activity, the time together- and of course, the grassy mound of little girl creativity!
Precious moments Heidi, as they don’t happen nearly enough.
Precious moments indeed. Beautiful xo
That photo of your little one is truly mesmerizing. Love it.
A captured moment dear lady. She truly was chuckling her little heart out… it was very funny.
