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!
