What Does it Take to Make a 9 Year Old Boy Smile?

Anyone else have this problem?  No matter how many pictures I take, I can't get my middle son to smile for me.
Come on Brody - give a REAL smile...... looks painful, right?

Last month, at his award ceremony at school - I get these set of lovely pictures -
 The bored look
The yep-just-give-me-my-award look
The I-won't-look-up-because-I-know-mom-is-taking-my-picture look
Just-get-this-over look
OK-I'll-throw-you-a-fake-one look

No matter what I did, I could not get a REAL smile out of him.

Until I asked him to take a picture with his teacher.........
There we go - Brody has a thing for Brunettes!

***************************************
For remembrance sake - I snapped a picture of this essay he wrote - totally made Matt's day (you know, since he's the big "hunter" now).

Ah, my boy - no matter how old he gets, he will always still be fascinated with the trains.....

Nothing will bring a smile to a boys face quicker than a pretty lady :)
