Quality family time: pic-nic, garden, board games… everyone staring in the same direction and not communicating with each other doesn't qualify in the first place. My opinion. These two ^ are equally bad.
I agree… You can't see family time in any of those pictures. The only difference is that in the second picture, the variety of gadgets used is greater.
I think the Today's picture is missing some tablets :)
Wow. Just…. wow. Idealizing the past much? o_0
What's missing is the audio. My house often looks like the second one, but the audio would be constantly peppered with us reading things to each other, sending links back and forth, and discussing issues raised in something we'd just read.
