We have friends who are always taking the loveliest pictures of their family, and every time I see them it reminds me to do them same. But I invariably forget to orchestrate it or to bring the tripod or even the camera when we go out. So we took a trip specifically to take family pictures, and it finally worked out.

But first, in case you don't just want to look at gratuitous pictures of our family posing in a park, here is our son, standing on his soapbox, having so much to say (no doubt quite eloquently) but without the aid of a translator. Sorry, son.

And here is what happened when he had his first watermelon slice. He grabbed it and started eating from the bigger, green end, and then he looked over and saw wise, little Joonsoo eating it properly. He got the hang of it by his second slice.

Appropriately it was Father's Day when we did this.

This we tried, but it didn't quite work out. He loved the tossing, though.

Joash really loved the self-timing process. I would clap and count down from ten for him, and it really got him in the mood to take a picture.

I love his little arms.

Obviously he doesn't find crawling nearly as noteworthy as I do.

Working on his peace sign, an essential Korean picture pose.

Copying Daddy, playing with tree leaves.

We passed this rather blunt message to gassy cars.

He got distracting by the big kids playing in the park.

Teeth! Chins! Kisses

More of that!

Kissing outtake because he made this real doofy face.

Again watching the kids play.

Sat like Humpty Dumpty, but his dad was hiding behind the wall.

By this time he was getting sleepy. It was almost 7:30 when we finished. Oops.

But he's always up for a tickle.

He's pretty great.

And then there was this big tank of fish we saw on the way home, for eats not pets.
