Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.

It seems to have become a Serious family tradition to hit the hibachi restaurant around holidays. So, Easter brunch this year was no different. A little Japanese food to help us celebrate. 

I wanted to try to get a picture of the girls and me before they started cooking and we started eating. (I’m soooo glad I used this setting. My eye has a HUGE stye on it and is so swollen and gross, but I don’t think you can see it in these pictures!) It didn’t work out so well.

Three out of the four looking isn’t bad. But, I wonder why E isn’t looking.

Aha! They were about to light the fire, and then they lit it. This progression cracks me. Up. Still trying to smile, but noticing the fire.

The girls all trying to back away from the fire (me still smiling like it’s no big deal).

And even though the fire is pretty much out, they are still terrified.

It was a tasty meal as usual. E tried to eat half of my lunch and half of Mr. Serious’ lunch, but I think she finally got full.

(Funny sidenote, our waitress asked us if Church was open on Easter. Um, yep, it’s open! Also, every time we go there, they love to touch our girls’ red curly hair. And, they talk about it the whole time.)

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)
