Invasion of the Smaller Fry

I’ve already sent these up to Facebook, but the overlap between my readership there and my readership here is gratifyingly small, so I’ll put them up here as well.

Background: daughter Becky, her mom (my ex) and all three of her young’uns showed up on my doorstep, which gave me an opportunity to show how much better a photographer I am than any of them were.

Yeah, right. This came out well:

Where the girls are

Shot by me in my living room. But the ex shot this one in my driveway:

Hedging a bit

And she was so worried that it wouldn’t come out. Note le visage du canard on grumpy Gramps there.

Oh, and we hit Italia Express for lunch. Everyone was favorably impressed.

    Let’s hear it for grandkids. They cause much from the kids to be overlooked.

    Photos are fine. They have a charming Irmasesque quality to them….

    For those keeping score, the lanky kid (Nick) turned 12 last fall; the girl (Allison) is 16 months; the baby (Liam) just showed up in April.
