Ferris Wheel Fun

"I see nothing in space
 as promising
 as the view
 from a Ferris wheel. "
E.B. White

I know I've been absent from blog land this summer. 
I'd like to give you a good excuse, but I really don't have any. 
Just trying to keep a better balance in my life, I guess. 
Summer is winding down, so I'll be visiting all of you more often. 

Thank you so much for your sweet birthday wishes for my boys :)

Great photos, Marcia! The ferris wheel looks like a lot of fun even to this senior citizen! Looks like your good-looking guys are having fun, too.

I so agree with the quote, smart man! I get butterflies just looking at the Ferris wheel! I am glad you are having a good summer, as it should be, :D

I have missed seeing you here! Ahhhh, On the ferris wheel, you can see for miles and miles... the wind on you face brings smiles!

Have a blessed day, how is Jordan doing? HUGS!

Debbie said...

You have good reasons to be absent and priorities well set! Good to hear you though!

Beautiful photos Marcia and I am glad that you are spending time with you family, summer goes so fast.

Kelli said...

Love the quote, but that ferris wheel would do me in! I can't do all.

Can't wait until you're posting more often again. :) I think we've all slowed down this summer.

That is a pretty ferris wheel with lovely views indeed. I took a picture of one here the other day but it is looking a bit forlorn and faded from the weather. Hope all is well, best wishes, Tammy

Blogging takes up too much time doesn't it? I know I'm constantly having to balance it. Enjoy the warmer days with your family. ox

Kevin and Pam said...

I love your photos Marcia. You do a great job editing. I am working on learning to edit. I have a hard time on the ferris wheel. It scares the life out of me! I will do any rollercoaster but not ferris wheels. :)

Auntie Bliss said...

I've been seeing nice ferris wheel shots online and have wanted to try some.
Glad you are back ;)
Hope Jordan is doing well!!!

Enjoyed the photos, Marcia....but the first one was like a blast from the past for me. So pretty!

Kimberly said...

I loved the EB White quote! Pics are sooo gorgeous ... look forward to 'hearing' from you more often as summer winds down (sniff, sniff ;)

Susan B said...

Don't worry about blogging...just 'enjoy' the summer days with your family! That's most important!

Love your photos! I used to enjoy riding on the ferris wheel. Thank you for sharing! :)

Vicki said...

Love this post. No need to explain. I think everyone has been a little slower to post and comment this summer. Glad you are enjoying the family. Stop by for a giveaway if you get two seconds.

Your beautiful photos made me smile, Marcia. My Sunday morning is off to a happy start. I have a thing for ferry wheels, what is it about these.
Love for a sweet Sunday! xxxx

Mimi Sue said...

Where is that ferris wheel? What a great view. Mimi

Linda said...

Great post! Summer has been nice this year...enjoy it with your family all you can!! They grow up too quickly! I have been MIA a lot too!

Debbie @ said...

Hi Marcia, what wonderful pictures. Love them. Hope you are doing well. I think of you often! Blessings,

Beverly said...

That is a great quote. It has been way too many years since I have been on a Ferris Wheel. You captured the view so well with your photos. Great shots.
I think time has gotten away from me this summer too. Fall is a great season to regroup and get things in order before the holidays are here.

Hi Marcia,
I have been absent a lot too so I know just how you feel!
I think other bloggers understand because we all have lives outside of blogging!
Love your pics!
I used to love to go on ferris wheels but now I just get queasy.
But I still love looking at them!
Hugs friend,

Deborah said...

Lovely post!
Your photos are great Marcia!!
I've been busy this summer too, and haven't had too much time to post either.
Have a great week!!
