    What a perfect picture. Captures the essence of what kids bring to our lives- pure fun, carefree side splitting laughter, the ability to enjoy themselves anywhere anytime… great reminder to live to our fullest!!

    Thanks MJ and JEN…

    It was rather spontaneous also since MIKEY actually stuck his head from the post while I am taking pictures of the Belmont Stop…and so just pressed the button.

    This turned out to be one of the best I’ve taken and humbling also. Because I became a mere participant and observer at the same time while the whole thing just took a life of its own.

    Mikey reminded me that life is like that, not to take it too seriously.

    A hard lesson learned that had me being thankful!
