3rd, make sure you all dress alike. For instance, let everyone wear dark blue, except the one wearing pink (see above).
4th, take pictures of a baby animal for your friend Steph. (Sorry they were sleeping!)
5th, Take pictures of that animal that is just plain weird looking. The same animal you shot last year and already posted.
