Old skool cameraYesterday we spent the day downtown with our lawyer to get our visas. The process is a little different this year because we are renewing them completely since we’ve been her 5 years now. We renew them every year, but we only have to get new pictures and sign more papers every 5 years.

We went to this little place to get our pictures taken and to get the official paperwork filled out. The camera they use to take those pictures is really old.

Uploaded - 114�8We had to get a front shot and a profile shot for each of us. Ben’s turned out great. Nathan didn’t want to take a picture. Mine and Janell’s make us look pretty mean, too.

Our lawyer had to hang around for a little while to get a paper for someone else, so we went to Starbucks to wait.

The video below is our family hanging out in Starbucks, something that has become more of a habit for us now that Janell found a drink she likes there, too.

The good news is that all the paperwork is done for our visas. We have permission to stay in the country for at least another year.
