Sounds and Sights of JOY


Yesterday I told you  this
Saturday AM, Madsnapper said to Bob, "it's a beautiful day for a walk on River walk and the ____ is having a _____ and I think it would be fun to see it." ..It was our YMCA Healthy Kids event.

Hundreds of kids got ready to “Charge into Summer” at the YMCA of Manatee County’s annual Healthy Kids event Saturday on the Bradenton Riverwalk.

  Excerpt from Bradenton Herald article by Jessica DeLeon  HERE for details.





Swinging and water splash park, bungee jumping,  dancing and a fishing clinic and much more. Can you see the JOY!!!

Very joyful!! They are loving it! But you and I would be simultaneously screaming and throwing up. GREAT action shots, and I can almost feel the beauty of the day! Favorites are the second bungee collage!

Cool! This reminds me of my junior high years when JFK's program on physical fitness took center stage in schools across the U.S. (Mind you, I was a complete train-wreck ... but tried all the same.)

Pam Jackson said...

Wow...kids look like they are having a great time. I would not mind doing that myself. That is neat.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Sometimes I wish I were a kid again so I could experience all these things that kids have to enjoy today that weren't available back...waay back...when when I was young! They look like they're having so much fun!

Great action shots, Sandra. Love the ones of the water splashing up and the bungee jumping boy. The expressions of joy and the two girls sharing fun moments are beautiful and make an onlooker feel happy too.
