I Heart Faces - anything but a face

I love the theme for this week's I Heart Faces challenge -

“Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes… Anything But A Face!”


But alas, I found 14,297 pictures of my son’s various expressions.  And anything other than his face, was usually a blurry shot of him making his escape from the camera.  (Please tell me I’m not the only one with a 4-year old who bolts at the sound of my lens cap?)

Digging deeper, I found a sunshine moment that I love – Itty Bit and Cousin Bubba racing to the fence line to greet their favorite four-legged buddies.



I love catching them in mid-climb – knowing that had I hollered for them to get down, they would have both turned and grinned at me from the very top.

The Tonka truck that accompanies both boys everywhere.

Firefighter rubber boots – the ultimate fashion accessory.

The glorious mudbath Joey enjoyed still evident on his shoulder; mane tousled from his last roll.

And the overturned dirt, showing that the horses pace that greeting spot just as often, waiting for their little friends.


Gosh I’m ready for springtime! :)

And I’m smitten with many of this week’s captures – head on over!

Sweet shot, girlie. Those boys are so lucky to have horses right at hand like that. My gosh, you would have had to pry me off of that fence EVERY NIGHT when I was that age. LOVE the capture... that's life, right there...

What a cute shot!

Oh, and i am so ready for spring time, too. It can not get here soon enough! I am so tired of snowbanks and cold. It can melt ANYTIME now.

That picture has Spring written all over it! Great shot, beautiful days, cute boys and lovely horse!

Well done!

Love those little boy shots. Makes me so nostalgic and gives me a desire to sit on a wrap-around porch sitting in a porch swing or rocking chairs sipping on lemonade ('cause I don't like tea). One day girl.
