Is there a more perfect expression of the freedom and joy of childhood than jumping, fully clothed and not caring, into a river on a summer day?

    There’s nothing better on a hot summer day than to take a dip in the river or creek if it’s deep enough. :biggrin: Hope everyone has a good week and happy 4th of July. :hug: :shimmy: :wave:
