Buddies Reunited

Five months ago, these two boys were the last ones left in their preschool before it finally had to close because of shelter-in-place ordinances. Today, they got to see each other again and it was so fun! Turns out they both learned how to ride two-wheeled bikes during their time in isolation and were so excited to ride together.

They are climbed the tree by the playground together and played like they had just seen each other yesterday at school.

Hawaii: Day 6

This morning we got up early and took an Uber to Diamond Head State Monument.

We met up with the Tsaos and were determined to get all the kids up the mountain.

Peanut had a slow start at first but he managed to get up the mountain all on his own.

The girls were up ahead and did great!

The kids took the 100 steps up to the top and went through the dark tunnel too.

We had to take a photo oat the top of the mountain! It was about 20 years ago that Mama and Dada first hiked up this crater together.

On the way down, Dada gave Peanut a little ride on the steeper parts.

At the bottom, we got some cold pineapple juice and Dole Whip.

Janie brought her camera along and took these photos of Mama and Peanut.

After our trolley ride back to Waikiki and some lunch at Duke’s, we headed back to the pool for some more swimming.

Then we went back upstairs to shower but made a point to hang out on the lanai to enjoy the sunset.

Dinner was pretty late but we had some good food at Highway Inn.

Peanut slept right through it and Janie stayed up long enough to eat and then fell asleep on the ride home. They had a lot of activity today and it was no surprise they were so tired by the end of the day.

Day with Jasper

It’s Veteran’s Day and with Mama at work and no school, Janie was invited to Jasper’s house for the whole day again. When she arrived, there was an agenda and then they were off!

They went to the playground again (across the street from his house).

They did some coding on their iPads.

After lunch, they made chocolate chip cookies and then went outside again while they cooled.


It looks like they had a lot of fun again!

July 4th in Cerritos

Last night we drove down to Cerritos for the long weekend.

In the morning, Peanut and Leela went to the park. We also experienced an earthquake as we were getting buckled up in the car.

Back at Yai and Ta’s house, we had a barbecue and Peanut gobbled up a bunch of Thai BBQ chicken that Yai made.

All the cousins were at the house and Ta gave them all plenty to do. They had water balloons, regular balloons, and a sandbox too!

They also went on a little “hike” in the backyard jungle with walking sticks and all.

In the evening, we all went across the street to ride bikes and scooters.

As the sun went down, we drove to Uncle Johnny’s house to watch the fireworks from his backyard.

Happy Birthday, America!
