My son Rhys…in his Daddy’s hat….
I’ve always loved the kids in the fifties…such a clean cut “Leave it to Beaver” kind of feel….lol. Except this kid is as much trouble as he is angel…sigh. My heart goes out to the ladies when he is older…if this look in his eyes is any indication!!!

Dreamer, mother, wife, friend and most of all…a captive audience of moments and memories…vivid, beautiful and breath taking…through the lens of my camera.

    Great shot, Marny!….maybe he’s more a Dennis the Menise? LOL….ah, we were all that way at that age!!

  • Yup…a menace all right. Got in trouble at daycare on Friday for “mooning” the girls. When I made him apolgise to his teacher…he said (and I quote) “I am sorry for showing my bum and my hoop”. GOOD GREIF!!!! I just stared at the teacher and quietly backed out of the room!!!! LOL

    LOL just read your reply to Charlie oh my good grief….I LOVE him….i just love cheeky boys who know where they’re at…..even if they do show their bum’s in the process. God only knows what will happen when he gets to the age when alcohol is mixed with it…….the mind really boggles LOL

    Great very cheeky picture!! :0)

    Alchohol….crap I was trying to forget about that!! lol

    Yes I have been planning on starting young with the "don’t drink or do drugs’ posters in his bedroom…lol

    I’ve already got him trained to throw papa’s “Smokes” in the garbage…wink. We want him around for a long time so were’re working on it!

    You described it perfectly- this shot definitely has that “scallywag” feel about it- makes you want to skip class and go fishin’! LOL… nicely done.
