SkyWatch Friday

And what is this?

It's lots of these!

Seen a couple of weeks ago in a northwest Calgary neighbourhood.

They were released by a large group of women who were gathered one Sunday afternoon, and I can only guess were celebrating or remembering something or someone special.

It was a beautiful hot and sunny day - almost too hot - (but shhhh, I shouldn't say that around here - we've had precious few hot days this summer)

And we had stopped off to look at a little water park.

Take careful note of the "look" in the above sentence.

Because my fully-dressed children conveniently forgot the word "look" at the water park, and proceeded to "play" in the water park. Rather completely!

They had a blast, of course.

Right up to the bit where they had to get back in the car.

"And you're not getting into my car like that young miss!"

These tufty clouds accompanied us on the way home - sadly, no longer a balloon in sight.

  1. What a fun, beautiful post for the day! I love the colorful balloons, the fun at the water park and lovely skies -- even without balloons! Your daughters are so cute and they are having such fun! How can you not smile/giggle? Thanks for sharing the fun! Have a great weekend!


  2. Playing in the fountain looks like too much fun to just LOOK!

  3. The balloons look fun as does the water park.

  4. What a cool sighting, fun photos! Happy skywatching!

  5. Water is so much better than some of the things I can think of - like the time my human children plastered mud all over themselves, from their hair down to their boots...
    Or my canine child with the long hair, who brings sand home from the dog park...

  6. Beautiful sky. And it looks like your children had a wonderful time!!


Sorry humans, but I have had to reintroduce the word verificatin thing again due to an inordinate amount of crappy spam.
