Weekend in New Hampshire

Weekend in New Hampshire

Technically this is June 28 – July 23, 2019. But you’ll see that it’s going to be dominated by our visit to the White Mountains last weekend. But first, let’s celebrate Mina’s half-birthday and get a little exercise. The kids…

Florida

Florida

You might well ask what kind of mad people would choose to vacation in Florida in June. These are the faces of mad ladies and gentlemen: Well, Ba Noi isn’t crazy – she stayed safe and sound in Massachusetts. But…

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…

Hilton Head Island Beach

We’re on Hilton Head Island for a week of getting warm. We deserve it! Last week the entire house had the flu – I missed three days of work, and really should have stayed home on the fourth as well….

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….

January 24 - March 1, 2018

January 24 – March 1, 2018

Winter continues, and so do the complex LEGO structures. I do love weekend mornings when Linus and I are up before Yen and Mina, and we sit together making and destroying everything we can think of. Charmer! Hm… What should…

Marriott's Manor Club at Ford's Colony, Williamsburg

January 28 – February 5, 2017: Williamsburg, VA

For our winter vacation this year, we contemplated all kinds of warm places. Mexico? Costa Rica? Even Florida, which we’ve always promised ourselves we’d avoid. Then one day, Yen pointed out that all we really need is a place with…

Oct 10 - Nov 5, 2016

Oct 10 – Nov 5, 2016

Mina is an incredibly feisty lady. She just doesn’t hold back! Her hair really had begun to get out of control in October. Of course we usually tame it with a little barrette, but this is what it looks like…

Vacation in Acadia

Vacation in Acadia

Mina is very excited about standing up these days. She’s officially “cruising” – meaning she creeps around the house either by pushing things so she can walk behind them, or by holding on to things and moving along. She’s still…

Linus: Week 61

Linus: Week 61

It’s been a tough week for us, and you can see a bit of it on Linus’s face here. I see this look and think, “Get that camera outta my face!” But maybe I’m reading too much into it. It…

Linus: Week 59

Linus: Week 59

Yen and I have decided that we should post photos weekly if we possibly can. That should make everyone happy: he has fewer to process, I can actually remember the events in the photos, and you get to have a…

Beach Sunset

Beach Sunset

Here’s a sneak preview of our weekend on Cape Cod. We stopped at the beach one night after dinner to watch the sun set. Here Linus and Cha are checking out an airplane. Linus is terrific at spotting them. Such…

Linus - Weeks 52-53

Linus – Weeks 52-53

Looking at all of these photos now, I can’t believe how much we did during these last two weeks! Linus has been using the potty regularly now for almost two months. I admit I thought Ba Noi was crazy when she…

Linus - Week 49

Linus – Week 49

Week 49 already?! Linus is growing too fast. Can’t we freeze him? We got him a couple of different sized balls to learn to kick and toss. He’s getting quite good at it, actually. Especially the tossing. He is so…

Linus - Week 48

Linus – Week 48

Linus had a very busy week, so no sense holding off on a post! First, he headed to a July 4 party hosted by our friends David and Yvonne. Linus does love a good party – after he gets over…
