Leo, Tingting, Thomas, Amanda and I went to the Gathering Place in Tulsa yesterday. It is such a cool, beautiful and fun place. Paid for in all private funding, it is the best public park I have ever been in! The park is free to get into and took about 2 years to develop. There … Continue reading Awesome time at the Gathering Place
So here I am, waiting in line outside the social security office to get Leo's SS card..... It's a good sized line well before they even open.... Will Rogers said, "be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for." I think he was right about that! Hahah
We made it safe and sound to the USA last night, and Leo got to meet his grandparents, aunt Marianne, and of course his big brother Thomas for the first time. 19 years apart, and everyone says they look-alike. Overall, Leo did such a great job on the flights. Our first flight was nearly 13 … Continue reading Brothers United!
It was such an amazing day. The weather was a perfect 24ºC (75ºF) and there was a constant yet soft drizzle of rain that was just enough to feel, but not enough to get you wet. So, I took the metro down to Laoximen Station where I walked through the anime market which seems to … Continue reading Beautiful day in Shanghai!
We came, we saw, we accomplished! Our rush to the embassy worked out great! We got our papers and I even got 25,000 steps in today as I explored Guangzhou on foot. I walked along the Zhujiang river, explored the Guangdong Museum, and did some luxury shopping at the IGC mall, though I bought nothing. … Continue reading 2 days, 1 night in Guangzhou
The consulate in Guangzhou is really nice, though like all American consulates, the outside security and check in is confusing and the staff are rude.... anyway, it was cool to see the US givernment showing some much needed support for the LGB community, especially here in China. 🙂
Tingting and I came to Guangzhou today. We have a bit of snag in our travel plans to the USA and we're hoping the US embassy here can help out. Otherwise, we took the evening and walked around our hotel tonight and enjoyed a bit of the local atmosphere. we found this old building / … Continue reading Guangzhou!
Just having a bit of fun with the laser cutter, and making example resources for my design classes.
We finally got our photos back from a studio we took Leo to. They turned out really nice.
We took Leo to Lillyput again, and he really enjoyed it so much more now that he is crawling and scooting about. He was mesmerized by the other kids jumping and playing. He also got to enjoy a large dish of mixed fruits... we discovered he hates grapefruit so much it almost made him cry!!! … Continue reading Playtime at Lillyput
