every year we get into the photo booth at the grass valley faire and take our “family portrait”. the first set i have is just jeremy and i taken in 2001 i think. we drove up to camp at a lake with his family and went to the faire during the day. a few years later we had marcello and into the booth he went with us, each year getting bigger and happier. in 2006 giulietta makes an appearance. big smile, big baby (almost 9 lbs) intelligent and demanding! this year for some reason i put the kids on a ride together and got back into the booth with just the two of us. it was a balmy night with lots of carnival craziness. my nose is sunburned but i look as i felt, happy.
