448 - 455 Fun Things to Do!

448 - When a team you have been rooting for wins a tournament, get your camera out there and take a photo of the proud winners!  This is a group shot of "The Americans" baseball team right after winning the Doylestown, Ohio tournament.   My grandson, Nate, is in the first row on the left and my son, Kevin, is the coach in the blue shirt.

449 - Grab a popsicle, find a swing, and relax in motion.  This idea comes from my friend, Deborah.  Thank you!

450 - Make up a bedtime story for someone, who doesn't necessarily have to be a child.  This fun suggestion comes from my friend, Ruth.

451 - Do some people watching at an airport.  I think this is the best place to observe the hustle and bustle of humanity as they come and go -- they have either been on an adventure, or are about to go on one. 

452 -  Watch the moonrise with some friends.  It is newly spectacular every month!  

453 - Take a photo of the full moon.  This was just taken with a cell phone, but I have a photographer friend who recently took a picture of the full moon, and it looked like it could be in a science book! 

454 - When you take books on vacation, read a few pages in so you won't be disappointed.  I am an avid reader, and this idea has saved me a lot of aggravation.  I like to read 1/3 of the way in for a few paragraphs, and 2/3 of the way in also.  Often the first paragraph is the best one in the whole book.  If I read at least 20 pages, I usually know for sure if I have a keeper.    I don't do that with mysteries though, for fear of spoiling some surprises!

455 - Find a wooden chair and paint it in bright and fun colors.
