Behind the Scenes: New Kids on the Playground

A few years back we were living in a house on a circle with a playground in the middle for all the neighborhood kids to play. Behind us was some farmland and wetlands where we occasionally saw wildlife off in the distance. Ahhh...the beauty of God's creation. I snapped this picture of a young deer whose curiosity brought him closer than usual. However, he is not just in a grassy field...

That afternoon on our way outside to play, we spotted some unexpected visitors already out playing on our playground. A mama, two babies and this young male deer were exploring the playground. They seemed very curious and brave to come that close to our homes. My children and I tried to be very quiet and get close to take pictures. However, the kids could not hold in their excitement very long and ran toward the deer family, which quickly ran off into the trees. But what a fun memory we made..."Remember that time the deer was playing on the playground"...***giggles***

"Behind the Scenes" is a fun link up where we show those photos - but tell the real story behind them. The sneak peek behind the scenes, a look past the edges of the photo to the real life behind it. - Crystal Stine


  1. So fun! We live just a block from a river and we have lots of animal visitors...my favorite was a group of five deer that went running down our street one random Thursday morning last winter. :) Thanks for sharing...great pics! Blessings!

  2. What a fun memory! I love those stories that make it into the family lore, "Remember that time when...". Great post!

  3. lol I see a line of children's books out of this - the little fawns playing on the playground, going on a big adventure ;)
