I Wonder…

As I was taking some family photos right in Basking Ridge on Monday afternoon – I had a thought as I was looking through the lens at this boy.  First of all, he was not sad at all – in fact, moments before he was running across the grass screaming with laughter as you will see below.  He was staring into my lens – I probably told him not to smile (a trick I use to make kids smile :))  What do you think he is thinking?  He does not yet have that adult feeling of being self-conscience.  Maybe is thinking – when the heck is she going to be done??

And here he is with his sister.  Pure joy is what I think about when I see this image.  Makes you want to be a kid again – for just one summer – so that you can stay out until the 5:00 whistle blows, scream when the ice cream truck comes and watch the kids riding their bikes behind the smoke mosquito truck?!?  Yeah summer!
