  1. It sure looks like a fun day for the smartly color-coordinated family! The children seem very well-behaved and a credit to their parents. And I don't see any electronics in their hands! How can this be?? Ha.

  4. Lovely indeed. And comfortable in their own shoes. Not trying to be someone they are not. There is something serene about this family that warm me up.

  5. Whenever the family is all together, the outfits are usually color-coordinated. Not crazy about Elisabeth's top, but hey, she's 15, and I am, well, way up there in age.
