I'm not sure when it started, but trying to make Bapa really smile in pictures is a tradition now. He will do a closed mouth "smile" any day, but getting him to actually do the "American smile" is a rare sight.
Thus, it has always been my personal goal to get him to smile in pictures.
This time, I made a deal with him that I'd smile like him, if he'd smile like me. It worked!
Silly Bapa! He just likes giving me a hard time. I love it though. I'm proud to have a real smiling picture with him!
