Shake it!

Aunt Jenny got Mina a karaoke microphone for her birthday. Which means I have to get Henry a puppy for his. But anyway, she obviously loves it. The sound quality…

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…

Unicorns and a Call for Submissions

Yesterday afternoon, Linus and Mina demanded hot chocolate. Who am I to deny such a request? I decided to serve Mina’s in a special little mug with unicorns on it,…

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…

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…

October 31 – December 2, 2018

You must be unhappy with me. I haven’t been posting much lately, and now I’m going to cover the whole month of November with just a few photos? Well, you’ll…

September 20 – October 20, 2018

Welcome to Fall! That means it’s hat season. Yen has instituted a routine of downtime each afternoon (now that naps are mostly over). Everyone gathers in our bedroom, and the…

Coincidence is a crazy thing. My friend Douglas (who grew up in Scotland but now lives in Singapore) decided to come to the UK to visit his family at the…

The Trans Take London: Day 5

After four days of running around London, we decided it was time for a little fresh air. We hopped on the tube for a very long ride – long enough…

Goggles

The kids are starting swimming lessons again next week. We decided to get them goggles for the occasion. They seem to like them.

The Trans Take London: Day 4

By Day 4, Mina was a pro with the bus system. She’s used to subways because Yen takes the kids to Boston frequently. Buses were new, though, but she got…

The Trans Take London: Day 3

Up and at ’em! We’re off to visit the Thames. Wait. There’s a fountain. Everyone stop and look at it! I believe I complained in the last post about the…

The Trans Take London: Day 2

Twelve hours of sleep and breakfast later, we’re off to visit the Natural History Museum. We decided to take a bus, which Linus enjoyed very much. On the way I…

The Trans Take London: Day 1

This probably sounds odd, but I’m looking forward to seeing what we did in London. I was there, obviously, but two small children on the move in a city of…
