Pregnant – One Day Our Lives Changed

I’m pregnant! Let’s just get that out of the way. I’m not one for building suspense. For the next months, I will write a series of 9 posts to chronicle this pregnancy. During my first pregnancy, I didn’t write much about it and now I wish I had something to look back on and compare […]

Attending This – Red White and Brews at Great America

Last weekend, our family was invited to a media event at California’s Great America. Their Red, White, and Brews event during Memorial Day Weekend kicked off the summer season. We got tasting cards for 5 items as well as beer/wine tastings too. A variety of entertainment including dueling pianists, a live cover band, and picnic […]

Wearing This – Playground Fashion

The other day, I put a sweatshirt on my son and he yelled his disapproval. Then I changed him into a hoodie and he smiled happily. So I guess we’re heading into an age of making our own choices now…at least I get to reflect on these playground outfits I put him in.  The playground […]

Traveling – Hong Kong Sights and Scenery

This very lucky little boy has been able to travel a few times so far. Seriously though, take advantage of free flights before 2. It’ll start to cost a lot to travel with kids later. We visited family in Hong Kong in December 2016 and I was able to capture so many good photos of […]

Colin’s First Birthday Party – Piyo Piyo Theme

Our little bear turned 1 last month and we had a fun party for him. The theme was Piyo Piyo, the cute yellow duck from the scissors we use to trim his nails. They’re such a life saver. I was terrible at clipping his nails until we got these scissors. We suggested guests wear yellow […]

Maui 2016 – Road to Hana, Famous Banana Bread, Black Sand Beach, Ae’s Thai Kitchen

Our final full day in Maui was spent doing an impromptu drive on the Road to Hana. We originally didn’t plan on going here because the windy road did not seem baby-friendly. Our Haiku AirBnB was actually on the Hana Highway so we decided to just drive along and see the first few stops then […]

Maui 2016 – Lunch at Mama’s Fish House and AirBnB in Haiku-Pauwela

Day 4 in Maui is somewhat chill. We switched to another AirBnB in Haiku-Pauwela. If we were stuck doing local things because we had a baby, we figured moving apartments would help us explore a new neighborhood. Before moving, we had lunch at a very popular restaurant called Mama’s Fish House. For a video version […]

Maui 2016 – Baby Goes to the Beach and Ali’i Lavender Farm Tour

Day 2 in Maui, Colin takes his daily dip in the ocean and this time it’s too cold. We take sun protection seriously here. OOTD: Hat from iPlay Sunglasses from Target (the girl’s section because it was the last pair left 😉 Long sleeve rash guard from iPlay Board shorts that are as long as […]

Maui 2016 – O’o Farms Tour and Maui Winery

Our first activity in Maui was a farm tour at O’o Farms, the dedicated farm for the popular restaurant Pacific’O. The farm is set in the picturesque mountainside. They practice sustainable and organic farming methods including maintaining a balance of flora that attracts predatory bugs to feed on insects that could harm the crop. They […]
