Happy Holidays from Karen at friendsfavz!


Kidfavz, Sara and The Bubble


Kidfavz, Sara and The Bubble

Welcome to kidfavz! On Wednesdays we share our favz that have to do with all the kiddos in our lives.

Today, I decided to share this enchanting photo of my nieces daughter, Sara Rose. I always refer to her as my niece but I am wondering if the correct term is grandniece?  I prefer to be called  Auntie Karen rather than Great Aunt Karen ( it makes me feel younger that way). However, when I was taking one of my other grandnieces to school one day the teachers were a little confused when I said the 3 year old was my niece. I then had to explain to them that she was really my nieces daughter and that her grandmother was my sister and not her mom, all very confusing. Anyway, this lovely photo was taken by Marek Ospaly along with many other photos of their family in a park in Japan recently on a sunny spring day.

They had a photo session in Osaka and Sara was chasing bubbles but they did not show in the photo. Angela, my niece, contacted my son Cameron and he was able to add the bubble back into the photo for them. I love Angela’s comment about the picture of her daughter,”Sara reminds me of a little fairy in the woods here following a magical bubble. I wonder where it will lead her…..”

I feel like we have the beginnings of a story here. Anyone want to add a line? It could be like that game we used to play growing up where each person adds a little to the story.
