    Well now, who knew. This one is definitely the most popular photo in my photo stream. Thanks y'all! - update: I also submitted this one to the Musee de L'Elysee as shown here.

    Update: Thanks to the Wallpaper and Backgrounds group for making this the Wallpaper of the Month! Very cool!

    Update: Sadly this photo was stolen and used without attribution on the book Houston Quick Escapes. I emailed the author and publisher and was told basically "bummer, go after the guy who stole it and sold it to us." Nice. Apparently theft is profitable even if a photo is Creative Commons. Sheesh.

    Erci, Boudewijn Boer (Bo), Ernie :+), and 720 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Irene - thank you for the compliments! Your comments made my day. The photo was taken in 2006. Those are my three kids. A few days later I received a call at 3 AM that my Father had died unexpectedly. The two events are forever linked in my mind, but in a positive way. The photo was so joyous. The day was so perfect.

      I rarely respond to the comments on this photos as there are soo many, which is very kind of everyone. Not sure what is making me type this now. It is a just very special photo to me and my family and I appreciate your comments. #peace
