K/Alphabe-Thursday

 Boy admiring his new face in a mirror

K is for KIDS

Maybe kids have changed since we were young, and perhaps they are a lot the same. What do you think?

When you were a kid, would you have liked to have a face painter invent a new you for an afternoon?

Future tycoon

Okay, every kid has liked making money, right? Well, don't mess with this guy - buy some of his lemonade! You hear?!

 Yesterday's kids or today's?

Kids in 2013 enjoying an old-fashioned game of tug-o-war.

Waiting on the dock for the ferry to arrive

Here the pink and purple plus the characters on the suitcases are very today, otherwise these girls could almost be from another time.

As these photos prove, life doesn't change for kids. Then or now.

that little tycoon to be is so adorable... kids have changed, we were talking about that yesterday, our neighborhood has zero kids outside. we were trying to remember when we saw a child in a yard other than the under 5 three next door. they do go to parks like these, but they don't play outside their houses.

Love the Lemonade Entrepreneur! No, no face painting when I was a kid, but we did have some pink and purple.

see you there! said...

I don't think kids have the freedom to come and go that kids did in the past. Some things remain the same though.

Kids have not changed... only the times.

Michelle said...

the lemonade hawker is too cute!

Penelope Puddlisms said...

It is funny how when a photo is black and white it seems to be from another era. All the kids are adorable. The superhero mask is awesome and the little boy in the chair reminds me of a movie director.

Jill said...

Fantastic kid shots!

Judy said...

This is an adorable set of pictures. Gets me thinking about old times.

Oh that second shot did make me laugh EG, he is definitely going to be a force to reckon with :) My daughter always does the face painting at the kiddies parties in the family, she has queues forming from the minute she sets up!

Margaret Adamson said...

Hi They are all lovely shots. That little guy really means business!! I love the little girls on the jetty

RedPat said...

Kids these days always seem to have someone watching over them unlike when we were kids running wild in the 'hood!

Stephanie said...

The kids are adorable! You hit it on the nose on the tycoon kid with his funny expression. Great captures!

Sue said...

Kids are my very favorite life form! Great shots...

Lowell said...

Cool shots! No face-painting when I was a kid. I would have thought that was stupid and furthermore I was way too busy riding bike, playing football, doing gymnastics, delivering newspapers, etc. for such foolishness!

Rose said...

Kids have so many more opportunities these days...

edenhills said...

These are great captures. I really do think kids are basically the same.

What cute kids! Love the little guy selling the lemonade!

storybeader said...

I think kids are pretty much the same, maybe a little more mature in some ways. And the world seems to be spinning faster! {:-Deb

fredamans said...

Jenny said...

I think kids will always be kids...

Although I do feel like teenagers are forced to grow up rather fast today.

Killer post for the letter "K"!
