Lazy Sunday

Today was the first day in a long time that my family had nothing to do. Every week day is busy with school and activities and grocery shopping and stuff like that. Saturdays are for synagogue. Sundays are for Sunday school or some other synagogue activity. Today there was no Sunday school and it was one of the rare Sundays with no Sunday school and no other programs or commitments. Plus we got the extra hour. We were beside ourselves. What were we going to do?

Well, it was supposed to be a nice, sunny day, so Mom and Dad got the great idea to take us to a park and play with the camera. It's hard to get pictures of all three kids together, so they thought between the two of them they might be able to get something. First stop was Nana and Gaga's backyard. We had just gone out for brunch, so everyone was full and should have been in a good mood. No such luck. Liana and Gillian were in their usual moods and didn't want to have anything to do with each other. I was busy pooping (I went five days without a poop this week and had to start laxatives, but that's another story). Nobody wanted to cooperate. They set us up in a few different positions, but mostly we just screamed at each other. And then I got strangled, which is how family photos usually turn out. So, Mom and Dad gave up on their brilliant idea and we went to the playground for a little and then just relaxed at home. Despite the rough start, it turned out to be a nice day. It's nice not to be busy. Here are some of our photos from today (you can click on any of them to see them larger):
This one almost worked...except for Liana.

Here's a decent one of me.

Look how sweet she can be.

Up in a tree, too distracted to smile at the camera.

No choking here, just smashing.

Almost got a good one.

Finally! We're all looking at the camera and smiling.

And here comes the choking.

Liana's in a better mood now.
