Theme: PIES

“Since pie is my favorite dessert of all time, any celebration involves a pie! This is a picture of me with my birthday pie and my two boys before I make my wish and eat!”

– John Otoshi, Retired, LADWP

John’s comment: Birthday pie – that’s the kind of creative thinking we like here at Picture Perfect! Happy birthday, and thanks for submitting!

“Mmm… pie. I made this pumpkin-spice-pudding, Cool-Whip-on-Graham-cracker-crust pie. It’s an old family recipe I found on the side of a pudding box!”

– Carlos Aranda, LADWP

John’s comment: Whoa, that’s a lot of flavors, Carlos! Thanks for submitting!
