A Picture that Didn't Make the Blog

Looking through our old pictures, I have found a few great ones which, for one reason or another, didn't originally make it onto the blog.  Like this one.

Lukas was 3 when this photo was snapped.  He had just commandeered this shovel from his good friend.   From her expression, can you guess how she felt about that?

Funny thing is, Mrs. LIAYF and I can routinely be found wearing those exact same expressions!

Thanks to my blogging buddy Lee over at An Ordinary Dad, for the idea for the post.

A CLASSIC "picture worth a 1000 words!"

Great shot. I hope he forgot the 60 minutes of verbal judo that she gave him until he returned the shovel.

She looks like she's lost faith in the adult world. How could they allow this injustice to happen???

She looks mad enough to eat dirt!

I think it was just a big misunderstanding, he was just trying to be a courteous young gentleman by helping her finish the hole that she started (and didn't get very far) His nervous smile is great!
Honored by the mention!

@Bruce - Yeah, it's pretty hilarious. Esp when you know the kids.

@Slamdunk - As is the case with most girls, all it takes is a look from those eyes that could burn a hole in you.

@BloggerFather - Life's lessons begin early.

@Dipplo_Daddy - Or sand, as was the case there.

@AnOridnaryDad - Thanks for letting me steal the idea.

@Teri - Thanks!

@Doria - Thanks.
