Capturing Childhood (While I still can)

"Who wants to go by the park?" I ask while driving back from an afternoon of errands.
A trio of resounding "Me!" booms through the car.

I'm SO thankful at 8 & 11 years old they still want, and love, to go to the park. Their heads aren't buried in electronic devices. A cell phone isn't plastered to their ears. They are aren't begging to go the mall.
Not yet....not yet.

I know that time is coming. It's right around the corner. I see it every day...little glimpses of what's to come. the meantime, I'll take every moment I can to capture them still enjoying childhood. Throwing their legs forward, their heads back laughing and pushing the swing even higher up into the sky.
