I am envious of kids, as they fly better than adults.

Enjoy USA, Ginnie...pre-election time must be great fun in that country!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, kids, do seem to enjoy being swum around like this, Ray! But pre-election time? UGH. My absentee ballot will be waiting for me, which is the only good thing I can say about that! (sigh)
ha! very cute!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Dennis.

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elaine. It's funny...I first had another image up with a title that said "Off to see the wizard!" How did you know? smile
Have a nice trips. Kids these days....
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael, and YES. Kids these days! smile

My best wishes to your both' voyage, Ginnie and Astrid, and come back safe 'n' sound, filled with happy experiences and beautifulimpressions!
Yes, this photo suits well the momentary extreme heatwave we in continental Europe are 'suffering' with (but it didn't harm my wonderful trip to Paris and its countryside).
Ginnie Hart: Thank you for your travel wishes, Philine. We are really looking forward to this trip, especially having my entire family meet Astrid at the wedding of my nephew on Saturday. If they don't fall in love with her, that says a lot about them, doesn't it!!!

The heat wave we're having is preparing us for the hot temps of Atlanta, I'm sure. Not my cup of tea at all. So glad it doesn't last long like it does elsewhere. I really don't do well in heat, I'm afraid! sad

Ahh - the joys of childhood and summer. I'm sure you will both have a wonderful time back home in the USA
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Chris, on both counts. We are really looking forward to it! :
Street photography ... good.

Enjoy seeing your family and friends ... and get back to some 'good' American junk food.
Ginnie Hart: I actually thought of you, Richard, when I saw this! smile We do look forward to our trip. I don't know about junk food but we haven't had a BBQ in ages! That would be fun!
All the best on your trip... Take lots of pix Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Jacquelyn. You know me...always lots of pix. smile

Have a great time away Ginnie will miss your comments.
Will you be trying to post from over there.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Peter. I know at least once when I will post...maybe twice. You'll be the first to know. smile
You two must be as excited as this child being swung in the fountain. Have a wonderful vacation!
Ginnie Hart: Maybe even more so, Mary!!! grin We're really looking forward to it. It'll be the first time many in my family will meet Astrid...after 5 years!
Have a good trip, hope that jet of water was not too cold smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, John. It was actually pretty chilly that day and I thought the same thing! smile
A great shot Ginnie! You can get away with that when you're a kid grin
Have a great trip! smile
Ginnie Hart: You can get away with almost anything when you're that young, Martin, for sure! smile Thanks.
I love this shot, Mother and child having fun, which I'm sure you two will over the next 2 weeks. I will say hello again on the 17th.as we are away the week you are back. Safe travels.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian. There's a lot of symbolism in this image for me as we head back to my kids and family. Thanks. Enjoy your own time away once we come back!
A delightful image, Ginnie, so much fun captured in this scene. I've taken my 7 month old grandson to the waterpark and so far he's only gotten his feet wet. Can't wait until he is old enough to experience the gushers.

Wishing you and Astrid a fantastic visit with your friends & family. Hope you have lots of laughs and bring home some wonderful memories.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Beverly, for all your wonderful words and wishes. We are so looking forward to our time away!

Nice one,Ginnie - have a safe trip and try not to annoy any GOP radicals smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! I promise not to annoy anyone...or at least tell them talking about politics is not allowed. smile Thanks, Tom.
mais la force du jet d'eau devait lui faire mal à ce gosse....bon c'était une bonne idée pour le rafraîchir
Ginnie Hart: Hopefully no one was hurt in the making of this picture, l'Angevine! grin Thanks. Merci.
