I Heart Faces - Candid Week

I have really missed I Heart Faces.

Sometimes it's because I don't have anything for the theme.  Other times the deadline sneaks up on me...

I have loved seeing this week's entries for the Candid theme.  Everyone has a different perspective and it's been so fun to see the images they chose.

Our friends will recognize this picture from an unseasonably warm day this spring.  The cousins got together and essentially trashed the yard with any and every outdoor toy.  But it seems that Aunt Ju and Doc were the best entertainment of all.

I love the chaos of this picture.  The yard strewn with toys, Itty Bit's shrieks as his aunt tickles him, and May-May's giggles as even the pup gets in on the fun. Definitely a happy day.

Perfectly candid! You can't stage a moment like that, can you? Especially the giggles and the licky tongue. That doggie looks just like ours, except without the white nose and tail tip. I can just hear the giggles... makes me want to run over and tickle somebody! (are you ticklish, Rach? How about you, Mr. Daddy? Oh, right, I forgot.. that kinda goes away when you get to a certain age. I think maybe the nerve endings are all worn out or somethin. Just sayin'...)

Adorably sweet! I love the pure joy in their faces... even the dog's!

Shana said...

I love this picture! That is a truly great shot.

Lisa said...

Truly you can hear his infectious laughter through the pic, and her giggles.

If that dog is anything like ours he's just a waiting for any type of morsel of food to be dropped....from the sky....from the wagon....from anywhere. Sigh!

Now dear husband is begging for a mini potbelly pig to throw into the mixture. WHAT?!!! Is actually what I said but I truly find it hard to say no to the lovely Mr. Pedersen and all of his charm, and handsome good looks.

Thanks for stopping by Rachel, and your photo is absolutely heartwarming.

Best,
Lisa

This is a fabulous shot. I have been lax on the I Heart Faces lately due to our camera delima and failing to reach into the one foot away desk drawer and pull out the discs with all the old pics on it. I know, it's pathetic. But this shot is just great. I can feel the laughter.

Stacy said...

Oh yes, there is nothing like happy little kids laughing! :)
