Monika Sapek level-classic May 26, 2019

Wow! How many comments! I’m delightful that you like this portrait of my daughter Anna. She was so wet, when I was taking this photo. We had a very hot day last Friday so I turned on the sprinkler in our backyard and the kids were running over and over through the cold water, laughing and screaming with joy. It so nice to see them all like that, they always have lots of fun with water, especially when outside is more than 90 degrees.
I really appreciate all your wonderful comments on this photo! Thank you so much!!!
