Memorial Day 2011

Maddie is in the playhouse there, but this was as far as they got in one afternoon :)
OK, this assistant has had enough sun, paint, and well, laboring...
Definitely one of those "Daddy and Me" moments I love seeing...
Assistant Adam coming out to help!

I was sick for over a week with the SUPERBUG or something so we didn't plan for anything. Mark felt compelled to work on the play house.

Walk for Technology Fundraiser

The 1st annual Walk for Technology fundraiser kicked off with "Family Walking" during lunch..Adam and I went and walked a few laps with Maddie and her friends. He was certainly a hit with the "older" girls :)

Teaching Ong-y

After spending the afternoon teaching Ba-y on the ipad the day before, he spent the morning trying to teach Ong-y another game in the "mini computer" :)

Adam's Plant from Science class

This is a cool idea! They grew the plant from a bean, watched it sprout...all in a CD case!!
(*He wanted to pose specifically so I could send the picture to Anh Eric and Chi!)

Mother's Day at Disneyland!

For Chi!
It got to be slightly cold and windy, but Maddie made Boo unzip his sweatshirt to show they are both wearing "matching" Mickey tshirts Miya got them from Japan :)

Boo didn't want to a) wait in line for Buzz and b) a little scared to go near...but a la Chi, he's pointing to show you!

Tried...but No go! Better keep eating and getting stronger!!

How we celebrated Mother's Day this the Happiest Place on Earth :)

CA Adventure Park

How they must have felt cuz it was our last ride...or just copying the lady bug?
What Boo does best?!

Again, not sure what they are doing except posing for Anh Eric and Chi?

One of SIX times Maddie rode the coaster w her Dad!
"And to make it more interesting Mama? I would close my eyes and raise my arms!"
Face of a very happy boy standing on the sidelines...
he thought he wanted to go on the ride but (luckily?) he was too short!
The "new?" mascot...Duffy the Bear!
If you couldn't figure it out, the kids are posers! And this one, after I asked Maddie what she was supposed to be doing? "Well, I'm reaching out for help after being captured!" sure...
Boo obviously not too happy posing...HAHAHAHA!
Not sure what they are eyeing, Churros or the fact they are on their way to ride the Coaster!
This was pretty much how it went, with me and Boo lounging wherever we can :)
In a redwood forest...
The picture is a little blurry, but this reminded us of "Survivors? READY?! GO!"
They really enjoyed this "ride" (aka play area) which we had never been before...
