We captured this dinner in two videos. They were taken when the family was having one of it's last dinners with Ciara before she returned to Afghanistan.
In the first video, Ciara is explaining to the family what's on her agenda for the last few days of her stay in the US.
In the second video, Ciara is recording the family sitting at the table each person in an active discussion. Towards the end of the video, you'll see Ciara and Pierce recording each other as a joke.
