Delighted smiles, wide-open eyes, and frosted "ahs" & "ohs" predominately directed upwards, spreads the warmth of wonder over a frozen veneer. A play "ground" with tikes of all ages tangled in the flight of fancy, restorative wind buffeting our temporary presence off the summer's beach. Another perspective of our neighbor's family romp in a park.
