Shutter Happy

I'm backdating this a couple of weeks because I'm sort of OCD, and would like this on the date it happened, not when I'm finally getting around to posting it.

So, back to Melissa's birthday. It was a day of firsts. The first day of our new monthly birthday dinner with the Marshes.

And our first dinner at their new high-rise condo downtown!

Also, the first of many great photo shoots while downtown. The flower beds at Temple Square were uncharacteristically empty, ready for tulips just before conference, but we had plenty of great backdrops on the public square just below their building.

For every photo of smiling kids I have at least five with silly faces:

See? Smiling:

And silly:

And lots of silly poses too. Here's Joey, a.k.a. Percy Jackson, controlling the waters:

This got a few smiles from people passing by:

This kid is not a poser at all.

Neither is this kid.

It must be genetic.
