Last Meal in the US

This is what Caleb requested today as his last meal before going back to Asia. We will all miss it...

It's been wonderful seeing friends and being pampered by special treats back home in California. Some have treated us to amusement parks and zoos and to dinners. Here is Caleb enjoying the merry-go-round with Eli at Happy Hollow, and an after-dinner picture with my bridesmaids and college friends of 24 years. Caleb got to watch airplanes landing by SF Bay all throughout dinner at Elephant Bar. He had a blast and we are thankful for the love of friends.

Things we pack

Yes, we do pack brownie mixes and Jello with us though not as much as some of our teammates do. And we've learned to toss the outer packaging and keep the instructions!

as it flows

relieved, happy, thankful, spoiled, undeserved, humbled, worried, prayerful, expectant, dependent...

Enjoying a toy

from uncle Chris. I thought about teaching him Kirchoff's laws, but didn't want to ruin his fun ... yet!

Caleb on the Kindle

Cherries and blueberries

Some of the treasures of summer.

Angel Island

We enjoyed a day of hiking on Angel Island with the Twoys. Caleb and I rode the Bart out to SF and joined the Twoys on the ferry out to Angel Island. We hiked around the whole island and Grandma Twoy put me to shame with her stamina! Here are some pictures of the day's outing.

16th anniversary

Per our tradition for the 2nd year, Caleb again took us to Black Angus for our anniversary dinner. Andy and I enjoyed thick pieces of good tender beef and at the same time realized what an odd piece of meat it might look to people of another culture and land. Well, we've been eating more beef in the past month than we have in the past year. We've forgotten how tender beef can be! 24 years of friendship and 16 years of marriage, and counting... His blessings.
