Oh, to be a kid again when the simplest of things made us happy

The genuine smile of a small child

I just love kids, especially when you get them to smile, not a forced smile, but a genuine smile. You know the one you capture when they aren’t looking. This shot was taken at my daughter’s 12 birthday and this little guy couldn’t be happier, he got a birthday hat and that is all he really needed to make him smile. I’m just glad I had the camera ready and caught the moment. Don’t you wish we could still be this happy by just holding a hat?

There was a New Yorker cartoon from the 70's that showed two zonked out hippies walkking by a playground where kids were having lots of fun and one hippie said to the other, "Don't you wish you could freak out like that again?"

Looks like he was having a good time.  I bet he had his eyes on the cake and ice cream.

You just have to love the innocence of a child. There's nothing like a kid laughing...at the simplest of things.

If only there was a way to keep them from becoming teenagers!

Kids really are the greatest and when you can get excited by a hat, then that is just even better.
