Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful for Sand, Sunset and Silliness

This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme is an easy one…

From Sara Rosso, the theme is Thankful. In the United States, yesterday was Thanksgiving, a holiday where people spend time with family and friends and remember the things they’re thankful for.

 I think the idea of being thankful and reflecting back on good things in your life is something that naturally happens towards the end of a calendar year…more here

Almost everyday (almost because some days, I forget), I am thankful that we live in an area of the United States abundant with open space and natural beauty.

I am especially thankful that the weather here is so mild that we can take our grandchildren to the beach with their short sleeve shirts in November,  and they can play in the sand  well into sunset.

I took these photos earlier this week, the day before Thanksgiving…

Older brother gets to “bury” little brother in the sand…

And now it is little brother’s turn to “bury” big brother in the sand…

It takes some work to focus on being thankful and to focus on the positive — at least for me.

I’m so thankful for these silly little men — my sweet grandsons — who give us a great excuse to stop and to just be.  Here are some other favorite silly pics, when they were younger…

Jun’s first moustache, seaweed!

This one makes me smile because Gabriel loved his little toy “motorcycle” and was so serious about riding it

I’m outa here, don’t even think of following me! :)  Scoot, scoot, scoot, scoot…

There really is so much to be thankful for…I’m thankful for being here to enjoy the beauty of our landscape…and of course, thankful for my family.

And hopefully, when the little guys are grown men, they are always thankful to have one another, and look back and be thankful for the childhood moments they shared.
