Smile.

Good morning, it is Thursday.

Yesterday was passport day. We have a trip to Canada in the nearish future, and a Mexican cruise always sounds fun...so, passports for the kids. Mine is still good for another year or so, but Maren had to renew hers as well.

Third time is the charm...Preston had to get his picture take three times. First time he was smiling too much, then the photo was too small, and finally it worked. We (uh, Maren) had filled out the applications ahead of time, so it was a trip to Rite Aid for pictures, then around the corner to the licensing place. Worked out perfectly as there was no waiting and we were prepared, but I must say, passports for the whole family is not cheap! We did enjoy Arby's for dinner.

See you tomorrow.

For some reason they don't want you to smile for passport photos....wonder why that is? When we got ours they also said same thing.

In the early days of photography, people would have to hold the pose longer so it was easier to do this expressionless, and they ended up looking so serious. as that technical problem is not there any more, I guess they are trying for identification of the person going through airport security-- nobody is smiling at that point. sp

I'm not sure why we've only spoken about the possibility of trips to Florida and Disneyland. Let's do a Mexican Cruise!!! Family reunion. Sussah - you're invited to watch Aurora!
