Every Saturday, I get a photo prompt from the Sepia Saturday challenge. This time they showed a vintage photo of children on a playground. The hard part is for other bloggers to find a photo in their own family album with that theme.
I grew up in the country, so our playground was the pastures, the creek, and the woods. We did have that red wagon which served both for fun and also was useful for bringing firewood for the woodstove that heated our poorly-insulated farmhouse.
Looking back to my mother’s generation, they were oil camp kids in the 1930s and 1940s. They appear in the picture below to be out on the prairie. Perhaps just taking a walk. That almost looks like a lake behind them so perhaps this is a photo from a trip.
They don’t look like they are having much fun at the moment the photo was snapped. Hopefully, after that, they scampered about picking wildflowers and chasing butterflies.
Here’s the photo from the Sepia Saturday challenge that inspired my search for kids having fun.
