Picnic Grove [Friday - Finding Beauty]

I dug into my archives looking for "beauty" and look what I found! An afternoon in September at Tagaytay Picnic Grove, overlooking the Lake Taal and Taal Volcano. What could be more beautiful than seeing parents and their children flying kites and spending time together?

This picnic grove is a place to play and take it easy, where nature gives strength to body and soul.


Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.

OH GLORY...such beauty. Your header reminds me of a tiny little island on the lake where our family has a cabin in Montana...our island has mountains jutting up behind it....but it still looks as peaceful as yours.

Oh Luna sweetie...
How absolutely beautiful this photo is. I love everything about it. The breathtaking mountains in the background, the kites in the sky and the families that you see sharing this beautiful day at a beautiful park. You can just hear the laughter in looking at this photo. I so adore it.

Thank you for sharing with me on this beautiful Friday. I have signed up to follow your blog. I can't wait to see what you share next. I would be so honored if you signed up to follow me as well.

I love the quote you used, along with the photo you posted. I wish that every parent could see this and take heed. Time spent with your children can go by so quickly and will they remember flying a kite with you or will they remember flying a kite while you talked or your cellphone?

Your post is beautiful and inspiring! Thanks for sharing.

I continue to look at that lovely photo -- thinking what it wouldve been like to have been there. Amazing -- what a great capture of scenery and joy (children playing -- is there anything more fun?)

thanks so much for sharing and participating with us at FFB-- So glad you could!
