Ahhhh…the simple pleasures of life are so appealing. Yesterday I attended a picnic for the Tamaqua Street Machines Association with part of an extended family group.
The playfulness of the kids brought back memories, memories of a simpler time with no electronic gadgets and outdoor picnics. Here two little girls much on Smores and play with plastic ducks after eating some cheese corn pops.
It’s nice to know that we can still enjoy those simple pleasures and pass them on to the next generation.
I recall the simple pleasures of running around in our underwear in a rainstorm, playing badminton in the middle of a dead-end street and battling for top bragging rights in the bean bag games that lasted well into the night. I remember my dad putting a spot light in a bedroom window so the darkness didn’t deter our play. Playing tag and statues in the summer and building forts and sleigh-riding in the wintertime were regular outdoor activities — and just a touch of all the simple pleasures we enjoyed.
What simple pleasures do you enjoy and share with others?
