24 Nov

This is the second in a set of wagon pictures. I spend so much time photographing this child and the late day was just perfect for pulling him around the yard in this old wagon. It has been quite warm these past few days. And J loves to sit in the wagon holding both sides looking around as he is pulled from one side of the house to the barn and back around to the gate all the while a striped cat follows us.

My sister and I had a wagon when we were kids. As young as I remember, we played in that wagon, pushing and pulling each other on the porch and sidewalk. We loaded it up with our toys setting out on an adventure with everything we owned. The problem though was that we had to get all that stuff put away. We even planned on “running away” and wanted to harness up Dolly the shetland pony, put a tarp over it like a covered wagon and head down the road to somewhere. Running away was only a fantasy for we had a wonderful home life as very young children.

That little wagon got lost during life’s changing of the guard when parents chose different lives and we moved. J now has a little John Deer wagon of his own and there is this family wagon in the photograph. Perhaps you have a story to tell of your little red wagon.

    Every child should have a red flyer! I remember the neighborhood walks with babies pulled along in one of these. I’ve given away many of their old bikes and toys but our old red flyer wagon is going nowhere.

    My wagon was natural wood, but with red logos. I used it so much that eventually it fell apart. It didn’t like being left outside much, either 🙂

    I love that wagon and your son is absolutely cute! This would make such a great photo to print and frame. I had a red flyer wagon for years… as an adult. : )
