    Oh! Sweet!! Reminds me of playing in the gutter in the springtime when it would rain so much, I’d send little bits of leaves and sticks down the current and pretend they were tiny boats. :o)

  • Thanks so much. That’s exactly the feeling we were trying to create. We’re thinking of doing a series of nostalgic kid pictures.
