We went to visit Clif, Julia and the boys this summer in Boise and took Everett and Simon to the zoo. Simon got very impatient with me when I tried to take a "just right" picture of the kids all together. The first picture everyone is kind of doing their own thing, then I got smart and told them if they stood still and smiled I would buy cotton candy before we left. That did it. Simon was sure to assure me over and over that him mom lets him have cotton candy. Just in case I was inclined to ask her first and she said no.

Lesson learned: Candy is always a good incentive!!!
