This photograph of my son Kemper, who was four at the time, was taken at Mission Ranch in Carmel Valley, California.

Kemper adores all animals, and he wanted nothing more than to stand on the fence and watch the sheep herded into their barn for the night. That we missed our dinner reservation was a small price to pay to see him so carefree and joyful.
