I wished I had my camera. I saw one of those priceless moments that you see in Life Magazine. An adorable little redheaded toddler, sitting on his father's shoulders. A handsome, young, clean cut man with a crew cut. The toddler had a miniature U.S. flag, and as he watched the parade in awe, he waved that flag with all the enthusiasm that only a two year old can have. They both had such pure, real smiles on their faces that I couldn't help but smile too. Even if the parade had been completely boring, I would have enjoyed it, because of the utter joy reflected on those faces.
You know what the best part is? Those faces, those beautiful, awe inspiring faces....they belong to me!
