Happy birthday, cousin

November 1, 2010

Last Sunday, the family got together for Tom’s birthday. Poor Ryan was so tired that he passed out even before the food came out. I looked down the table and saw him swinging his head around, as if it were just too heavy for his little neck to support. After fighting the good fight, he gave up and decided to just rest it on the table. Literally seconds later — boom, out for the count. Dylan had a blast blowing out his dad’s candles, even though he refused to touch the cake itself because it wasn’t chocolate! Unfortunately James couldn’t be there this time because of work. His and Tom’s birthdays are just two days apart — hopefully, next year we can celebrate them both together.






Father’s Day in SD

June 20, 2010

Yesterday, we drove down to San Diego to visit James’s parents, and to celebrate Father’s Day with his dad.


Clockwise: driveway to the IL’s house; lemon margaritas made by FIL (MIL says he’s been making them nonstop since their trip to Cancun); pincushions they found on a hike up in the mountains; our delicious dinner (gotta love the requisite Budweiser – what says “Korean dad” more than that?!).

Happy Father’s Day

I had actually planned on being home in Baltimore this weekend, but unfortunately, back to back travel weekends just didn’t seem possible. So I’ll have to settle with sending my Happy Father’s Day wishes across the country, all the way from LA!

Family dinner tonight in Buena Park. So much fun seeing the cousins and all their kids – they really grow so fast! Wish we weren’t all flung so far apart across the country so we could do this type of thing more often.






Happy Mother’s Day!

It’s times like these when I really, really wish I lived closer to home! I sent a little package to my mom earlier this week, but it’s just not the same!
