More of my parents

Part of the temple festivities included some cartoon characters roaming around (probably to entertain the more modern-minded little kids). My mom seemed rather smitten by them so I offered to take a picture of her with them. I was aiming to fit in one or two characters, but they all gathered around trying to get included. The most enthusiastic characters I've ever seen!

Then we stopped by where they have special incense that is supposed to help with your health. My mom used to gather smoke and put it on my head so I'd be smart. Here, hmmm...trying to get my dad to grow a longer beard? He doesn't look impressed though, does he?

Then on the way home, we met a woman and her 4 month old baby. Now it was my dad's turn to be smitten.

Or maybe it's for the beard to disappear...

As I get older, watching my parents interact makes me laugh. They're funny characters, especially when they're together since they are so different!

April, actually, I was frustrated with the quality since the sakura was so pretty. But I can't take long-distance shots very well. I do like the one of my mom all smiling with the characters though!
