the first few

We’ve been back in the US for just over three weeks, and thought you might like a peek at some of the highlights of our time here in California so far.  It’s been wonderful enjoying everything from my top 5 and more.

First trip to Target.  Talia was shocked when the doors opened automatically and said, “Mommy!  Was that magic?!”

  1. It’s very nice pictures and great family. Where do you live so far in Laos or USA? I think your kids will like to live more in the USA than Laos.
