Looks like this kid's a 'big wheel'. Ah, the joys of youth mixed with summer. Can it get much better?

Kate said...

At a marina? Seems like it should be in a theme park of some kind. Are the kids delighted or scared, I wonder.

Delighted. As am I with each comment left here. Thank you all.

Oh what fun.
Remember the giant chair Lily Tomlin used to sit in and do comedy. Was that on Laugh-in?

I do remember. That's her character Edith Anne, right?

Sharon said...

I can almost hear the laughter.

Beautiful. Trust.

Lovely capture of the kid's expressions! It looks like they're not sure whether to sit or jump!

This reminds me of all the huge furniture we find in some furniture stores. I swear you'd need to be 10 feet tall to sit in some of those chairs and have your feet on the ground!

Cute! I hope that little boy gets to keep those gorgeous curls.

If we don't encourage our children to do more romping, the giant chair may not be so oversized in future generations.

I have seen these chairs in Florida too. They're always a big draw. Ha!

The fun would not be the same without the toy truck in hand!!!

What a fun bit of furniture! Looks like it's appreciated.
I remember Lily Tomlin...it was Laugh In. :)

How to feel a giant when you're ten years old! ..What a delight it must be!

Cezar and Léia said...

How funny, they are adorable kids!
Here in Lux there is a kind of "giant chair"as well, but I think the kids can't play there, unfortunately :(
Ahh thanks so much for your support and friendship, my tests were okay.Now I have vacations and then in September the course will start again.I think I have progress but it's necessary to keep on!For instance... I speak better than I write, and for sure I understand much better than speaking.
By the way... marina or "Marina" is also the name of my daughter, oh girl...she will be 17 years old in August!Time goes so fast! :)
hugs

Note to self: can Léia really have a 17 year old? ;-)

You have a wonderful eye for capturing the fun of childhood.
My 'child' leaves tomorrow, I'll be sad to see him go.
