Friday Foto Finish Fiesta - Aquaman !!!

It's Friday and it's a Fiesta !! At least it is, thanks to Candid Carrie ! :-)

When my kids were growing up, back home in Wellington, New Zealand, we were very fortunate to live about a 10 - 20 minute walk from at least three beaches.

There were more to choose from, about a 15 minute car drive away, which meant that many summer days were spent lazing on the sand.

Found this photo of my youngest son, Stephen (one of my twins) trying out one of his Christmas presents. He'd wanted goggles, flippers and a snorkel...


He was rather obsessed about that set. I'd often find him flip flopping around the house, a towel acting as a cape, brandishing a light saber ( Star Wars was a favourite too ) and wearing his water gear .... ready to defend home and hearth, the World and the Universe from any baddies that could be skulking around ...

Do/did your kiddies have any obsessions ??

Do you ?? :-)

lol...great photo. My kids are little...4 & 2 but their current fascinations include dressing up as a princess and dressing up as Wall-E and dancing around the house. I hope it never ends!

I'm sure all of us obsess at some point in our lives.

What a great life! Thanks for sharing the summer photo. It is nice to have something to look forward to....months from now. sigh.
