May 7, 2019

The kids are very busy with outdoor activities lately. Linus had his last skating lesson this week. Unfortunately Yen forgot his helmet, so he had to wear one from lost and found. Don’t worry: he was only pretending to be…

Tennis, anyone?

Tennis, anyone?

The kids have started tennis lessons! As usual, Mina is the teeniest peanut of the bunch. I think they need to get a half-size net for her.

Playgrounds and Cemeteries

Playgrounds and Cemeteries

Just a few quick shots from the weekend – when Yen was without his camera. We decided to stop by Mt Auburn Cemetery. Partly because Grandma and Grandpa are visiting and we wanted to show them the sites; partly because…

February 9 – April 14, 2019

This post is going to cover a long period! It begins back in February when still had snow and still lived in our old house. And Linus was tugging at my heart strings by drawing a piece he called, “Linus…

Bowling!

Yen took the kids to Kings today. Looks like we all missed a food time.

Books

Books

Just two photos to share with you today – but they’re really good ones! First up is Mina with her new favorite toy. One of her favorite books is The World Champion of Staying Awake. In it, a character we always…

Dentist

Dentist

The kids went for their six month check ups today. They’re both looking good! We were encouraged to give Mina’s molars a little more attention, but the dentist admitted that it’s awfully hard to get a toothbrush all the way…

Goodbye, old house!

Goodbye, old house!

Must try not to cry while I write this. We’ve said goodbye to our old house. One of the things we had to do while getting ready to sell it was remove the decals Yen carefully placed before the kids…

I’m sorry I haven’t been posting lately – we’re still trying to get settled into the new house (and sell the old one!). But of course Yen sends me photos throughout the day, and I can surely share them with…

Ice Cream!

Ice Cream!

The kiddos endured a truly crazy day with me on Sunday: we went to IKEA. We arrived at noon and spent 45 minutes waiting in line for our sad little plate of meatballs. After we ate, we used the series…

Hilton Head Island

Hilton Head Island

Our original plan for winter vacation this year was Sedona. We were going to spend the week hiking and getting warm. But you might remember that we hiked in a canyon near Vegas, and that the kids spent the whole hike…

To warm up, let’s have a little dance: Yen put his old tripod on Linus’s camera, so he’s been taking a lot more photos (now that they’re less blurry). He looks like such a little pro! We had an unusually…

Christmas 2018

Christmas 2018

Last week I was a little down in the dumps. As a result, I wasn’t sleeping well, and two nights in a row I came home and just sort of fell over onto the couch. I don’t remember this at…

Vegas, Baby!

Vegas, Baby!

If you’re going to go on vacation, you’d better start training early. I’m not sure what Mina had planned for Vegas, but she looks ready for anything. She has also learned that vacation involves photos. Lots and lots of photos….

Party Animals

Party Animals

Last night Yen’s aunt had us and some of his other family over for a little party. As I always suspected, Mina knows how to turn it on when she has an audience. She chatted away with all kinds of…
