Unphotographable Moments

Relyn's blog occasionally has posts about what she calls "unphotographable moments", times when you see something that is touching in a small way; things that a picture couldn't do justice to. I saw one today.
Have you ever been to a festival or fair where a tractor pulls a miniature "train" around the grounds? Children love them, especially the Thomas the Train fanatics. Well, I went to an event with one of those crawling about the yard. I happened to look at just the right time. Three boys, all around ten or eleven, were sitting in the last three cars. Of course they didn't fit, but I'm telling you - those boys were having the time of their lives in that train. Almost identical - arms crossed over their chests, heads leaned back, legs sticking out of the car, smiles on their faces - yet so different.
I just wanted to share with you the little things. I simply thought this was unphotographable. A picture couldn't capture joy.
