Just a boy and his balloon

My two-year old loves to take walks, on this particular day he started out with two balloons. During our walk he loosened his grip and away one flew. My son looks up and says " oh no! Bye bye friend " and he turned around, tightened his grip on his last balloon and decided to walk home. I felt so sad for him and I snapped this shot. It was his determination to take care of his last balloon that amazed me. As I type this, his last balloon is above me, tied to a chair for safe keeping.
