An afternoon in Springville

My granddaughter and I spent the day in Utah County visiting my friend Shelley and her three little girls. Shelley told me that she loves childhood, and you can tell she's committed to protecting its magic.  She has a large rambling yard with trees and birds, a swing, a sandbox, a playhouse, an old sink for splashing, a "mountain" for climbing, and a friendly Labrador named Samwise.

The Bean (my granddaughter) was in heaven.  And watching her reminded me of myself when I was that age, taking in the whole wide world through my pores.

Thank you, Shelley.

This post is so well-written, it almost makes Springville sound ok.

Hey - Springville is great! How many little towns in Utah have a bona fide art museum?!

Glad you had a good time Ann - it was definitely the highlight of my week!
