OK! I admit it. I’m a worry-wart. Worrying about my own kids was bad enough. Worrying about someone else’s is even worse. My least favorite place to take the grandkids was and still is, the park. And naturally, that’s always their first choice when I ask what they want to do. If I can weasel out of it, I will. But sometimes there’s just no way around it, so I watch with my heart in my mouth as they go flying on the swings or ascend the climbing frame. MIND!!

I imagine things may have calmed down a bit by now, but when Maggie Daley Park in downtown Chicago first opened, chaos reigned. Not only were the kids screaming and having a great time, parents were hurtling down the slides and enjoying surreptitious rides on things meant only for five-year-olds. It was all rather fun to watch. For more on The Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily Post go to https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/chaos/

The Weekly Photo Challenge from the folks at The Daily Post at http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/08/16/photo-challenge-carefree/ is Carefree
Oh to be a child again! Absolutely carefree! No staying awake all night wondering how you’re going to pay the bills. No brooding over missed homework assignments or poor test results. No agonizing over who likes you and who doesn’t or why no-one ever seems to respond to your comments on Facebook. No responsibilities, no worries. No-one relying on you to say or do the right thing.
These pictures are some of my earlier attempts at family photography. The grandkids were always willing subjects.
