The Ice Cream Bribe

I went outside and found my son had gotten into my truck and had buckled himself in, he was convinced that it was time for Dad to take him on an adventure . . .   how could I say no.

When we pulled out of the driveway I suggested that we find a place where I could take his photo and try to capture the beauty of the eyes that he inherited from his mother (who has stunningly beautiful eyes!).  His response, no that sounds boring.  So we went to Arnie’s, the local convenience store. As we arrived I was informed that the store was not much fun, but we proceeded inside anyway.  I found myself a cold coffee drink and as I it on the counter I whispered to the clerk that I also wanted a small ice cream cone.

As we walked out of the store my son had no idea that in one hand I possessed that greatly coveted treat and he told me he was sad that I did not get him anything, when I presented him with the cone his eyes lit up, I then proceeded to bribe him . . . . . . an ice cream cone in trade for a photo session in the park while he eats it.  Funny how much he wanted me to take his picture after that!  Well, here are my favorites from our little ice cream session in the park!  I hope you enjoy them half as much as I did.
