i ♥ faces ~ week 24 - let's hear it for the boys

Here is my weekly entry for the www.iheartfaces.com contest this week. The theme this week is "Let's Hear It For The Boys".

**Update: Yipppeeee! My adult photo won 2nd place this week!

Kids Entry: This is a picture of my son, Ethan, riding a quad with his favorite cousin. We love to go visit my husband's sister and her family in Boise, Idaho. They have a beautiful home with some beautiful property and the kids just run free. And I thought to myself... what says boys more than a picture of the two young boys out riding an oversized quad out in a cow pasture!?


Adult Entry: This is a picture I snapped just this past weekend. We went to a bike rodeo to learn bike safety and ride on a small bike course and my little boy was having so much fun hanging out with the fireman and checking out the firetruck that was there that he spent very little time on his bike!

Love these photos. Does not get more American than that!

Mommy Rachelle said...

Great color effect you've given these shots! I especially like the first one of the kids on the heavy machinery... aren't they starting out young with the adventure cravings? :)

Annette said...

Boys on 4-wheelers in the pasture? I could not agree more. That is my life too. Nice sharp crisp image.

SMILES!!
great shots!

Foursons said...

Once again, I'm in love with your photos. First off, can I go to Idaho with you next time? I'd love to hang out in a cow pasture. The kid entry is certainly "all boy". They look like they are having a blast. The adult entry has beautiful color (as does the kid entry). I love that the fireman is holding your son.
