She got to run around the garden in her underwear (after playing with water and getting all her clothes wet).
And steal grapes from the cheese plate while her father saw all his extended family (the photo shows the end of a very long table).
If you want to talk about the fabled "Asian values" of close family kinship and tradition. Hang out with a Northern French family. Forget insular nuclear family - you have 30 cousins at the table (20 couldn't make it) and everybody talks at the same time. Over large amounts of alcohol and food ... it's almost Asian !
