Things have been busy since we've been back from our Northern California trip. I had to go into work for a few days, and we took a trip to Disneyland yesterday (Now do you understand the posting delays?). As soon as I muster a little more energy, this blog will hopefully be updated in a more timely manner.
Anyhoo, I was looking through the hundreds of photos we took during our vacation and noticed a long series of pictures that were our attempt at a family portrait. If you think it's hard enough to get one toddler to take a good picture, imagine how difficult it is to get two toddlers to cooperate. Despite my inherent Japaneseness at taking photos, it took a long time to get one decent photo of the Ichikawa family.
Here is just a small hint at the chaos that occurs when trying to get one good family picture:
We tell our uncooperative kids that if we don't get one good picture, we're never going to leave Crazy Grandma and Lazy Grandpa's house.
