Deborah of Pictures, Pots and Pens is hosting Favorite Family Foto Friday. She is on vacation this week but I thought I'd post a picture anyway. This picture is four years old. It is one of my favorite pictures of Tim. I actually have it framed in my computer room. He was five years old when this was taken. I needed to take him to the lab that day to get some blood work done. A year earlier he was very sick and in the hospital and left there very afraid of needles. I didn't tell him where we were going that day. When we pulled into the parking lot of the doctors office (the lab was around back) I told him what we were there for and let him know that if he was as brave as could be I would take him to buy a toy on the way home. He did a great job of trying it hold it together so we stopped at a store on the way home and he choose this Teenage Ninja Turtles sword and mask. I don't know where the mask is, but he still plays with the sword. I don't think he remembers what he did that day to earn his new toy.
