Linus began collecting hubcaps about a month ago. He asks us daily to go on a hubcap hunt with him – which means driving around looking for abandoned hubcaps. What does he do with them? We’re actually not opposed to…

I asked Yen and Linus to pick up pizza. I wonder whether the toppings will all be on the side when they arrive?

Linus offers a tour of a lobster (which he calls a shrimp here but loudly corrects himself whenever he sees this video). It really cracks me up, but then again, I am his mom.

Outside!

Finally some good weather! The kids are celebrating with some quality time at the park. This may look like a fancy, exclusive park, but it’s Co Ba’s garden.

Honestly I don’t know how she does it!

Our little witch is getting ready for a ride, I think. Never mind – let’s stay home and warm! Here’s Linus headed to school one morning. I think he wore that hat all day! It may be mud season in…

Cape Cod

We went away from home for the first time since December 2019 this weekend! Yen and I are both fully vaccinated, and we were confident we could keep the kids away from people. It was Linus’s April vacation, so… It…

Linus’s current passions are taking videos and finding old cars in the forest. It’s a difficult combination because now I have literally hundreds of inscrutable videos on my phone and constant warnings about storage space. Here are two he’s particularly…

Mina brought her bike to the park, but I guess she just preferred to run. I asked Linus what he was doing in the back. “Picking up some screws and washers,” he said.

In case you ever wanted to learn, Linus has made this handy tutorial. And Mina gets into the action too!

Here are all the animal sounds (according to Mina).
