“Play is the work of child­hood.”

The Back­story

Dur­ing the sum­mer, we of­ten go to the Nor­folk [VA] Botan­i­cal Gar­den. In the chil­dren’s gar­den, there are sev­eral fan­tas­tic splash pads. One day in May, the weather was mild and com­fort­able, and we de­cided to en­joy the spring flow­ers and play in the wa­ter. There were not many peo­ple there that evening, so my sons could run around and dare each other to stand in cer­tain spots and put their face in the most pow­er­ful streams. This im­age is re­ally the per­fect de­pic­tion of my 3-year-old’s per­son­al­ity. He’s bold, dar­ing, vi­brant, play­ful, and so happy. Many of my fond­est sum­mer mem­o­ries have taken place at the gar­dens, so this im­age will cer­tainly be a trea­sure for years to come.

We’re team­ing up with Sara Mc­carty, founder of the Run Wild My Child web­site and blog and the In­sta­gram hub @Run­wild.my­child, to pub­lish an amaz­ing photo from her feed each is­sue! The pics, all taken by par­ents like you, show­case kid­dos on out­door ad­ven­tures big and small. Tag your own shots with @Run­wild.my­child, @fam­i­ly­fun­mag, and #Howwe­fun for a chance to be fea­tured.
