I'm not sure if we achieved our goal of everyone looking and smiling at the same time, but it sure was a fun afternoon. I thought this one turned out rather well. No running off, no tears, no eyes shut, no looking the wrong way and no pulling on bows. Success!
The funniest part of the day was when Emma couldn't understand why we all kept telling her to smile when her bow was in danger. We hadn't realized a HUGE worm was inches away from her beloved bow that had been tossed to the sidewalk. She finally broke into serious enough tears that daddy saw what was happening and saved the bow in the nick of time. Yuck!
