Family Reunion Day 2

Day 2 together involved family portraits.  The 17 grand kids were bribed with suckers in the end to smile for the camera.  Everyone from the oldest to the next to youngest received their prize sucker, or two, after 200 plus shots later.  When we gathered the kids together for group shots they had their suckers - Trader Joe's, no GMO corn syrup or artificial flavor or food color by the way.  (Don't be a sucker for GMO!) :-)
