General
impression
I don't want to be too critical of this photo because it is a nice moment with two beautiful, happy little girls. From a technical standpoint, there are all kinds of things that would have made this a much better picture. From a memories POV, it is a nice snapshot.

Hard to go wrong with pretty girls with cute smiles!

Composition
& perspective
While the girls are the center of attention and focus, the background is very distracting.

Again, because I do not know what you shot this with I don't know if you could have changed the DOF. However, the picture could be improved with a shallower DOF.

Color &
Lighting
Colors are nice and bright, lighting a little harsh.
6/10
Focus
The focus is soft. Since I do not know the specifics of the camera and settings, I am going to guess that 1. the auto-focus on your camera missed its mark or 2. the softness is caused by a little camera shake.

How to improve your photo
1.
FOCUS: If indeed you were using a point and shoot, watch out for camera shake. Lock your arms into your body and hold the camera still or lean on a nearby post, table, whatever is close by to brace yourself. If not a P&S, watch your focus and do not hit the shutter button until the camera lets you know you are in focus.
2.
Change your perspective. The next time, watch your background. If it is busy, think about changing your perspective--shoot from a lower angle to clean up that background.
3.
Shoot lots of pictures when you are in this situation. Sometimes the best shots are the ones when your subjects stop looking at the camera and start goofing with each other.
