Socal Trip Part 1

For spring break we went to Socal! The best thing about Socal is Auntie Charlotte’s house! She has tons of food and toys and stairs! We love Auntie Charlotte. And her house!

Our first stop was at Elodie and Alinea's house. We ate snacks there, made a big mess, then went to eat Italian food! We love pizza and pasta but are bad at taking group photos.

Sister Shenanigans

Kayli and I do lots of funny and ridiculous things. Sometimes we have so much fun playing together until I take her stuff and pinch her. Sorry Kayli I can’t help it. I’m 2. You are the best sister though you give me all your favorite things!

Leia’s belated birthday post!

Time for my late birthday post! I turned 2! Kayli had a huge party for her birthday but I had like… nobody… well except my favorite people I guess. How come I don’t get a big party? Where are my friends? Wait who are my friends? I don’t know. I got cake though and cake is the best. A teddy bear cake from Nainai. I ate the eyes. And an ice cream cake! I love ice cream! And the day after my party I got to go on rides at Gilroy Gardens!

I got to blow out my candles with a straw!

We waited a long time to go on a really slow boat ride. Then I decided not to go so Kayli went with Daddy. We look good in life jackets though!

Belated birthday party

This year I had a huuuuge birthday party at the Foster City Rec Center! Almost everybody I invited came and we had almost 50 people — I didn’t even know most of them! I think this was to make up for last year because I didn’t have a party. We had pizza and Hawaiian BBQ and lots of games and cake. I learned that Meimei loves pizza, Hawaiian BBQ, games and cake. Especially cake.

I am soooooooo excited for my party.

We love to sing

We love to sing so much. We sing in the morning, on the way to school, at school, on the way home, in the bath, at dinner, after dinner, and in bed! Lately, we have been singing lots of Moana, Frozen, Sound of Music, and Christmas songs! Meimei wakes me up almost every morning singing Happy Birthday!

-Kayli

We were in a Moana phase for a long time, but then Netflix stopped showing it! That is a powerful company! I love Netflix! Please bring back Moana!

Meimei got so good at singing Do-re-mi just from listening to it in the car! I love Teslas because they play my favorite music!

We love to eat, part 2

We love to eat out on weekends. Usually it’s some yummy Asian food and usually we have to drive far and so we fall asleep and Mommy and Daddy get boba while we’re asleep.

-Kayli and Leia

We love Korean food: fish cake, japchae, kalbi, and Meimei is drinking some gukmandu with a straw!

Meimei loooooves ice cream. She only got some because Kayli had to poop and Cream had a bathroom we could use, so we had to buy something.

We love to eat, part 1

We love to eat… though mostly snacks! Usually we eat breakfast, then snacks, then lunch, then snacks, then sometimes more snacks, then dinner, then a gummy, then sometimes candy and sometimes fruit. Wow what are Mommy and Daddy thinking? This post makes them seem like bad parents! But they’re not of course.

Snow Trip Part 2

The next day we drove back up the mountain to see some better snow. This time we went to a snow play and sledding place. Meimei does not like sledding… but I love it! Mommy and Daddy had to catch me at the bottom so I wouldn’t slam into a wall. We also got to eat snacks. Soooo many snacks. Crackers and cereal and pouches and candy and breadsticks with chocolate…

Last minute trip to see snow! Part 1

This weekend we went to see snow for the first time! Mommy and Daddy planned a last minute trip, so first we had to get all our snow gear ready. Daddy went and bought a bunch of stuff and so did Grandma! We tried everything on and were good to go!

Mittens, check! Daddy bought them 5 sizes too big so that they will last until we are teenagers, so they didn't fit too well, but that's ok.
