I did manage to get this one, though, when we went to the playground to run around for a while. I love his little smirk here, like he is getting away with Something Very Naughty. Because the road to Hell is made out of sliding boards or something, I guess; I don't know how my own kid thinks, let alone someone else's.
You will note that this time My Anonymous Mother does not have her purse with her. She can be taught.
I have absolutely ZERO IDEA what this face is, or what is going on here, but I love this picture anyway. It's like Wall of Fame material, seriously. What is she saying? What is she thinking? It's fascinating. This kid fascinates me.
We tried to get the kids together for a photoshoot with Nana. This is the best picture of the bunch, no joke. Shae's eyes are all red from 6 hours in the pool, she's full up on mac & cheese, hot dogs, and inhaled pool water, she accidentally coordinates with my mother (I swear that was unplanned), and meanwhile poor Joey doesn't want to go in the pool. He just wants his mommy.
So, you know: a typical family photo, for our clan.
I did manage to get the kids to cooperate (slightly) for this little movie, which was one of our "test takes" with the new camera, but which I kept anyway because I think it's adorabale:
I love the part at :14 in, when they bust out the synchronized ASL. Party on, little guys, party on.
