Look at that face!

It’s a real departure from Small Fry’s typical forced smile/grimace for the camera. Because? She is HAPPY.

She loves, loves, loves getting to captain her daddy’s truck. She pretends to steer, plays with the buttons and checks out the contents of the center console. Even in the freezing cold, sitting in that truck is pure bliss.

So when I looked up this week’s You Capture theme on Monday and discovered “happy,” I knew that our little weekend photo shoot in the truck would be perfect. Serendipitous.

No, these aren’t the truck keys. I think they belong to a storage unit. But Small Fry didn’t need to know that. Holding those keys gave her power! and independence!

Lord help us when she turns 16.

  5. Oh my goodness! I love these photos. I especially like the one where she is looking out the car window. Classic. I posted pictures of my daughter too! I hope you will check them out.

  6. That’s great! I remember being the same way as a child – best part of the day was when my dad would arrive home, honk the horn at the end of the driveway, and I would run out to sit in his lap and “drive” down around the back of the house. Fun memories! 🙂

  7. What a cute HAPPY smile she has. Trucks are quite the photographic incentive to smile, eh? 🙂

  17. Awh! Reminds me of my little boy! When he was under a yr old he was so short he could stand on his Daddy’s legs and his head not touch the ceiling in his truck but now he’s like double the length and he’s all big and acts like he really knows what hes doing! He loves to ‘drive’ …I love the photos of your small fry! IT’s the simple things that make kids happy!:D
