Summer Family!

Here's a fun memory from this past summer:

As usual, my parents wanted a group photo of all their grandkids. But, as my sister pointed out, "How do you take a picture of 7 kids? That's 14 hands, 14 eyes, and 7 smiles. All moving at the same time in different directions." (See her post for some of out initial failed attempts, plus the portraits from previous years.)

Then my SiL Louise had a brilliant idea: giant rainbow lollipops! Decorative in the photo, plus they keep some of those little hands occupied. Here's the result:

I know the baby is still screaming (and the toddler looks worried), but they were like that in all the photos. This was the best one. Not too bad, IMHO. Note: the baby has two legs, even if it's not clear from the photo.

Who took the sucker from the poor toddler on the left?

Mom...give it back.

Hey Alan!!!

Yeah, that poor little toddler was having a hard time -- almost as bad as the baby! Maybe in a couple of years all of the kids will be old enough to be distracted by something simple like lollipops! :D
