Oh boy, oh boy! What a bunch of cute boys.
You are the master at capturing expressive faces, not just a boring smile for the camera face!

Ah, playing with water, sticks and dandelions. That's childhood right there, Becky! Give them a chance to sit in the driver's seat a pretend to drive, surround them with loving adults and playful friends, and there is nothing left to desire.

This post has it all. =)

(Thanks for swinging by so much lately. I've been out of the loop lately, but my busy season is slowing down again.)
