Perpetual Motion

We went to Muir woods on Sunday.
I was trying to get a nice family portrait of my sister, her husband and kids, all dressed up after church, among the lovely trees.
Well the trees were fine, and the clothes were fine,
but the light was low,
and moreover it was extremely difficult to get pleasant expressions on everyone's face all at once.
Either Ethan was pulling faces,
or Sophie wasn't paying attention,
or their parents were admonishing them.
Or Sophie was moving about.
Sophie moved a lot.
This ended up being my favorite picture,
both because everyone has (at last) a reasonably pleasant expression,
and because everyone is still except Sophie,
who is slightly blurred.
To me this picture just sums up three year olds.
