Le petit garçon et son seau


These fountains can be found in most of the Paris parcs and cemeteries. It's obvious that the children have learned quite early how to use them without getting their clothes and shoes wet!

Square du Temple is a very small parc which seemed to be a favorite of the young and old.  Very kid friendly with a large playground for the children.  This day it was alive with little ones.  We especially loved this little boy with his cute glasses and stylish sweater.

Good shot Virginia.

You're right. A boy like this would stand out in the U.S. but fits right in while in Paris.

Square du Temple is next to a hotel where I stayed twice, but I have to admit that I never really had the time to "enjoy" this place.

My little girls loved any type of water play. Sweet capture.

This is so adorable. I saw it on Facebook and had to come here to comment. This photo took my breath away at first because it looked so very much like the little boy I babysat in Paris! Then I realized the location, and saw he is wearing glasses and realized it is not the same child. BUT, it is so typical of French little kids at the park. I can't tell you how many times I helped fill a bucket or cup or water bottle at the seau for the little boy to play in the sand! I miss it. :)

Beautiful! Our water fountains aren't lovely like this, just plain pipes with a faucet. I like this very much!

Shell Sherree said...

Very practical! And I love the little glimpse of his glasses ~ he looks like a sensible young man. Hope you and Meeps are having a beautiful weekend, dear V. Hugs from us!

I have a fond memory in this lovely little park of watching two maybe-teens and their adult "coach" perhaps (?) playing ping pong. I don't know if the table was there or they brought their own, but it was quite a match! I love this photo of a sweet boy so simply charming.

It almost appears to be a tattoo on his neck. I also like the raised pinkie.

Virginia said...

Starman, I missed the pinkie. Good eye!
