The Gallery: Simple Pleasures

When I saw this week’s theme for the Gallery was ‘Simple Pleasures’ I started thinking about photos I could use. My children love spending our money, their birthday lists are getting longer by the day, but their happiest smiles don’t come with a  receipt, so I decided to add a few photos this week. These photos all brought smiles a result of something which cost nothing:

Building a sandcastle…

Burying Daddy in the sand…

Travelling like a giraffe…

Letting everyone else do the hard work…

Bundling Mummy on a big hill…

Playing at the park…

Nothing beats the sound of a child laughing, and I don’t think it can fail to make you feel more happy when you hear it, but the ultimate stereotype when it comes to children, big presents, and simple pleasures must be this…
