Whatcha doin' son?

Last week on a particularly warm night, I went outside to find Josiah for dinner.   He was tearing down the sidewalk at top speed grinning from ear to ear.  That particular grin is usually reserved for mischief involving brothers so I asked him who he was playing with.  His reply?  "I'm playing car chase, Mom."

My son was chasing cars.  He would wait down the walk for a car to round the corner then see if he could beat it to the big oak tree in front of our house.
I replied, "Son, you can't do this stuff out here in public where people can see you."  But since I was also grinning and reaching for my camera, I'm pretty sure he didn't take me seriously.  I don't think you can see his grin in any of these pictures.  I wish you could.  That grin is the most amazing, contageous thing in the world.  We do almost anything in this house to see that grin.
Even let our kid chase cars.  In public.
