Why yes, I am looking for Daphne's boopie....Daphne took these pictures
So, for some reason, Jean had all the kids. Laura and I were about 15 feet from them. A couple of tourists stopped to take pictures of the kids. Soon, Jean was surrounded and Laura and I were laughing. Then they all turned and waved to us and we waved back. Apparently they asked Jean if she was the mother of all of them and Jean pointed out Laura as the mother of the girls. They spoke very little English but Jean did her best to understand them. Two women had their picture taken with Daphne. Daphne said, "Two mommies wanted to take my picture with them." The whole thing was very strange and very funny.
Daphne posed for Mommy....Erin stayed bundled up
Daphne took a picture of herself....Erin in her Dora glasses
