With COVID finally winding down (apparently, at least; it’s been a long journey and I’m aware I might read this later and think… Ha! Naive!), we decided to risk a…

Dec 12 to 28, 2021

Some Tran crafts to start you off. First, a bow and arrow. Binoculars! I wish I had a sign like this. This one disturbed me, but I tried not to…

June 17 to July 1, 2021

Who’s happy it’s summer? Linus! We finally found the courage to take an entire week off and disappear! This time it was the White Mountains in New Hampshire. We tried…

A Visit with David

I’m fully vaccinated, so I hopped on a plane to visit David! We refused to try to figure out just how long it’s been since we’ve seen each other. Much…

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…
