Train trips with my kids (to my very happy place: Chiba)...it all starts off well with Alysha looking smashing at the train station.
Nonas stares pensively out the window...for a full 10 seconds--wow!
For a good percentage of the time she looked more like this.
Yes. And this. Note Alysha's face. Unfazed. This clearly has been going on for some time. All to see my family. Dear Winnie, Mom, and June, I love you THIS much.
I can imagine that I must have looked like a great mom, pulling out my phone to take pics when she’s doing that. Oh my.
This is what we do on long car trips.
Disney on Ice! Shrieks of joy come later in the auditorium as Alysha discovers that Tinkerbell really is real!
Aforementioned long car trip (to Alysha's birthday party on the river).
Alysha, on her birthday.
pool side babe
doesn't wanna leave the pool (every time).
resorts of antics.
…aaaand, stay tuned for more (maybe tomorrow).
and I’ll add a little caption to each.
Mike the farmer in Kanno san's beautiful hatake which cranks out the most delicious vegetables!
Me, coming to America! (if you haven't seen the movie, you should)
Where Keith got Mike to take him while I was gone.
more smiles with Daddy (he did great while I was gone).
They even had a BBQ breakfast--what a man-dad!
They came and picked me up at the airport, and it was a happy reunion!
more of Keith in Marioland.
I finally took the pics off the iphone and I’m gonna be sharin’ them with you in the coming days!
I’m off tomorrow. Only for a week, but I will miss my Mike and the kids soooo much.
Here’s a food Chris made last night. I actually ate it and it was good. You can ask him about it later.
Alright guys don’t miss me too much. I love you. Today was a perfect day. I’m so happy I got to sit in the car and talk and laugh with you before I go. you’re so funny and cute. Don’t worry while I’m gone. Mike will take wonderful care of you and you’ll get to do fun things with him (probably more than with me). I love you my bunnies.You’re the best in the world.
Pray for me and I will pray for you every night and morining and sometimes right after lunch.
