Foto-story Friday #22 -- Desire


Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek


We were at our favorite store, Ranch and Farm Ace Hardware when I took these photos. Every time we get in the suburban the chorus of : "Are we going to Ranch and Farm?" begins.  I've taken the camera a few times and gotten some fun pictures.  I was behind him when I looked up and saw him staring... {This is actually the second shot I took... but it needs to be first to tell the story best.} 

Can you see the desire in his eyes?
This is the first one I took.... can you see what he wants?
Here is the object of his desires .... a John Deere trike or a pedaling tractor. {on the other side of these were two John Deer pedal tractors.}  He told me several times how nice it would be if he could just have one.
Or any John Deer toys!  
He wants a bigger collection!

That second/first shot tells it all.
He reminds me of Ralphie, in A Christmas Story.

there is a definite gleam in the Scotty eyes. That sure is pure desire. Can't blame him though...it looks like fun. I'm sure Javin would feel the same. Enjoy you time with Mum and Da!

You might like to take a peek at the contest running on my blog this week and next. It's for a signed copy of H. B. Moore's latest novel, "Abinadi." Wonderful book!
