Open Spaces: Playing Ball with Livvy

September 28, 2010

Find the Kitty

When I had installed the flooring for both the kitchen and the dining room (but before we moved the rugs and furniture back in to the room), it created a very long, smooth surface. We had a lot of fun soaring across the back end of the house– 40 feet long!– in our stocking feet! Livvy liked the long space, too. It made the perfect place to play ball. We uncovered two of our missing superballs while moving boxes around. The kids and Livvy had a “ball”!


Because I tried to refrain from the flash of the camera, the shutter speed slowed down. Any motion was blurred. But I love the dramatic colors and slightly blurred edges.

Here’s Livvy, stalking down one of the superballs.


We tried scooting her “baby” (a small stuffed rabbit toy) down the hallway. She didn’t like that.


Waiting for the ball. Waiting… waiting…


….waiting…. Why doesn’t she get it?


Oh wait, she wants it NOW!




You don’t want to play anymore, Livvy?


Too tired. Time to rest.

    Great pictures of Livvy. She looks like she is having a super time. The hallway looks terrific. Love all the colors. You should put up a before and after picture of the kitchen. I remember a few older pictures of the kitchen when we were searching for Livvy
    Have a fantastic day.

    Midnight likes to play with ping pong balls. Livvy’s super ball is a great idea. I’ll have to look for a couple of these.
