    Funny – I took a similar shot of my son at the edge of a waterfall in Eugene parodying the caution sign…something about not going beyond this point…then I had to walk away so as not to get my “mother anxiety” started.

    1. That is funny, Scilla! As long as they were lying on the ground, I felt okay about it, but in the next shot (not shown), I found myself wanting to clip them to my belt with the camera strap to keep them away from the edge.

  9. only with humor we can survive…

    1. Oh, dear frizztext, that is so true!

  10. eof737 says:

  12. Nothing wrong with a good sense of humor πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Carol, it reminds me of you and your kids having fun, posing in the road or the cemetery. I have a feeling our families might have some things in common! Thanks for stopping by.

    Having been the designer of many a public sign, I couldn’t help but think, “What? And who in the world is Cliff Falls? Did he pay for this advertising?” I sincerely hope this ISN’T their day job! ( the sign maker, that is.)

    Love that your children engage in such frivolity. That joy in the spontaneous moment – icing on life’s cupcake.

    1. That kind of fun certainly is the icing on the cupcake of life! (I love that expression–definitely a keeper!) Oh, my gosh, you would enjoy England! I think the rule for English sign makers is “Never say anything in two words, if you can find a way to say it in six or eight.” Compared to us, they are extremely polite. Instead of “Curb your dog” they say, “Please don’t allow your dog to foul the sidewalk, for the sake of convenience and consideration of others.” I love England!

  14. Kourtney Heintz says:

    I love the signs I see when traveling. This one is priceless. Love how they got right into the swing of things too. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, Kourtney. My kids are not shy about that sort of thing. I remember picking my son Eli up after his soccer practice, along with a car full of my siblings, all dressed up after a pre-Halloween trip to the thrift store. Not only did we not embarrass him by coming in costume, but he let us dress him up too, right there in the school parking lot, and then take him to the DQ in what we thought looked rather like an Elvis costume.

  15. Madhu says:

    That’s too funny πŸ˜†

  16. Debra Kristi says:

    That is hilarious! You guys are a crack up! πŸ˜€

    1. Thanks, Debra. We have a lot of fun.

  17. Millie Ho says:

    This is wonderful, Naomi! Made my evening.

  18. Who is this Cliff Falls and why is he making so much trouble?

    1. Good questions, all! Thanks for the visit, and the laugh.

  19. Cathy G says:

    Very clever! πŸ™‚

  20. Wonderful. Two thumbs UP.

    1. Hi Tess! Hurray, I’ll take it! Thanks for the visit. I hope you and the little lady are well. xo, n
