Palo Alto Festival of the Arts--August 2007
After seeing a great photo of our nieces Alex and Catie, we decided to do our own version of the photo, featuring Alex and Catie as well as our nephew Nolan and next-door-neighbor Sean. The four kids are all a year apart in age, from the oldest (Alex) at 9 to the youngest (Catie) at 6. We posed them on a blanket on the front lawn and took a billion photos--fortunately this one turned out. This was a 12' x 12' square.
