What a nice picture that these three little elves in a hurry.. The color rendering makes this scene perfectly in value. There's a taste of autumn, but a calm and bright autumn. And I wish to leave more words on this very beautiful image... if my spoken English was not so limited.
Ginnie Hart: You are such a sweetheart, Marco! Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

Those trees and shrubs look much pruned, Ginnie.

Give Chad a playful punch on the shoulder from me, please.
Ginnie Hart: Much pruned, indeed, Ray, and I hope sprouting with life by now. There was still snow on the ground there that day. I'll definitely punch Chad for you. smile

Those children do appear to be in a hurry! Fun times await, and they look excited to get there.
Ginnie Hart: I have no idea where they were going but I think they were trying to escape from the parents! smile Thanks, Mark.

Seen Chris' comment, I do hope that Chad keeps track of the number of grandchildren then...
Hilarious title and a fabulous picture!!
The Folk Museum was amazing and beautiful.
Ginnie Hart: I guess having one grandchild helps me keep track of mine, MLMA, but clearly Chad is blessed beyond compare if he has many to keep track of! How fun. Hartstikke bedankt.

A sweet picture reminding me of the fairy tale "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs", but there are only four dwarfs? - oh, I understand the three stooges have already rushed off to the birthparty today - or is Chad today Snow White? In any case he is "the fairest of all in the land"! My best wishes for him and many happy returns!
Ginnie Hart: Don't we love these celebrations within our family, Philine. smile So sweet. Bedankt.

You have Norwegians attending his party? Do you think he knows how to act around children. I mean, there are certain differences from sheep.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I have a feeling Chad will know how to behave like a perfect birthday boy today. smile Thanks, Louis.
What a sweet shot this is.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary. It was hard to resist as they went rushing by. smile
A beautiful action the sitter. I've loved the colors. Great job. A greeting.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Pedro. Gracias.
A lovely shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Mick.

I do like the tones in this Ginnie and, what is this...a birthday wish...I am overwhelmed.
Ginnie Hart: Birthdays are VERY important, Chad, no matter how old you are. Enjoy your day! smile
Delightful Ginnie. I suppose I'd better send the old buffer a birthday greetinggrin
Ginnie Hart: Do it now, Bill, before it's a belated birthday greeting. grin HA! Thank you.
Terrific image Ginnie. I love the warm colors of the "costumes" juxtaposed against the wintery setting.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. smile

Love this shot Ginnie. It is so sweet and surprisingly touching. You can tell they are really close...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Dayo, for stopping by and commenting here! That means a lot to me.
Ah! Been there - a little lad, about 7 dashed up me and asked something in Norwegian - I said, "Sorry, I don't speak Norwegian" - his eyes blinked for a microsecond and then he said in perfect English, "Can you tell me where the wooden church is please?" - makes you sick, don't it!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love it, Tom. What a sweet story to share. smile Thanks.
I'm back, G!
Oh, so these kids were late for Chad's birthday?
Thought they're leaving early - each hiding a cake in their pockets! Ha ha...
Ginnie Hart: Don't we love to imagine the stories, LC! Welcome back and thanks.

very nice capture. love them boots too.

there's a norway day festival here this weekend. is it norwegian independence day or something?
Ginnie Hart: The Norwegian big day is May 17th, if I'm not mistaken, Maria. Hmmm. Not sure what else would be going on? Sometimes I think every weekend is a festival for them, especially if the weather is nice and they can go outside! smile
