Child making bubbles on the front deck

Happiness is making bubbles on the front deck when you have no other care in the world. My 8 year old son, Diego, was playing with bubbles on our front deck on a hot summer day. I passed by the front door and saw him spinning round and round to make the bubbles form. I saw the look on his face and I knew I needed a photo of that moment.
