We have a huge bush of yellow flowers growing wild in our yard which the the inspiration for today’s bento. The flowers attract a lot of butterflies but they also attract a bunch of black bees which the kids hate. Anyway, I wanted to take a picture of the kids with flowers to put in my post and it took sooooo long just to get a few shots. I had to shoo away the two stubborn bees hanging out by the flowers before I could even get the kids to sit by the bush. Then getting Sean to smile was and always has been an insurmountable challenge. If you have my latest cookbook you can see for yourself. Our family picture at the end of the book showcases Sean’s classic “smile”.
Out of 20 pictures today, this was Sean’s best “smile”.
I also wanted to send out a big thank Diane Ako of the Star Advertiser for her wonderful write up of my book yesterday! Happy belated Birthday to Diane’s super cute little girl, Olivia!
