I ♥ Faces - Just For Fun

This week at I ♥ Faces, there is a catergory for "Just for Fun." Any picture, just as long as it has a face in it! I have gone back and forth between this one, and the one that is the header on the blog.
The story behind it for those who haven't read it yet... Hope can not/ will not just look at my camera and smile. It just never happens. She will either look at the camera and not smile, or not look at the camera and smile. This makes me very sad! Not too long ago, we decided to take a day trip to Memphis with my parents to go to the zoo. She woke up the morning of the trip so happy and said "Mommy, I had a dream that I looked at your camera and smiled!" While we were at the panda exibit, Hope climbed into a hollow tree trunk and I started taking her picture playing. Then I asked her if she remembered what her dream was about...and she looked right at my camera a smiled her sweet smile. It totally made my day. I will always treasure this picture!
(and, just in case you think this might have been like a breakthrough moment for her and that now she smiles at the camera all the, no.)
