Apple Head

It wasn't that cold so we took the hood off the vest you got from Grandma Chan. When we came home from the daycare you just put it on yourself. I thought you looked so funny like a very fashionable deep sea diver. Coolest thing was what Kai said. Out of the blue, he said 'oh Anna, you are so cute!'

Rebecca, Kai, Anna

Your mom is right, I rarely take pictures of her with the two of you. I don't know why but I guess I am just not the picture taking kinda guy. Even when I am on holidays I tend to just shove everything in my brain and am too lazy to take out the camera. Anna looks cool though in her new coat from Grandma Chan.

Chinese Fried Noodles

I've been sick after the marathon, caught a cold. Kai has a stomach flu. So for the last two days I made congee. Today I made plain congee with some simple soy sauce fried noodles. Topped with sesame seeds.

Field Trip Anna

Bad timing for these, you actually looked really happy to be in your field trip gear when you came home. But then you wanted to get the back pack off. I got it for you a while ago. I though since Kai has one you should have one took. But of course the girly version.

Kai in Berlin

We went to the Berlin Zoo. I am not a big fan of zoos but at least the kids like it. Before the zoo we went to the biergarten nearby and you two played with this boat 'Gisela'.

Anna in Berlin

We went to Berlin over the weekend for my first marathon. It was nice to be in a big city. We had Dunkin Donuts for breafast, took the subway, and went to pick up my runner's number at one of the airports. Besides seeing lots it was also nice to see Harry and Anthony. You kids certainly had fun.

Chicken Wings, Garlic Bread, Carrot Salad

Sunday dinner. Store bought garlic bread, lingoberry juice, grated carrots marinated with sesame, sesame oil, salt, and pepper. The chicken wings were marinated with lemon juice, soy sauce, sugar, salt, and pepper and grilled on this gas burner with a korean bbq fitting.

Papa's Suspenders

Those suspenders belonged to me, when I was a bit older than you. My mother loved to dress me with them, I remember I had a big collection of suspenders which she kept and which the two of you have inherited.

Grilled Ham and Cheese

Preping forthe big marathon so did a longer run on Sunday. Rushed home to make a quick lunch. Grilled cheese with ham and tomato along with some chips.

Brother and Sister

We don't have too many pictures of the two of you together. But these are nice. Needless to say we both love it when you play nice. Seems like since Anna gets older you two play nicer together. Sometimes you would even share things and make the same silly gestures.

Posing for Omas

Took some pictures of you with dresses from Oma Gote and Grandma Chan. The red polka dots dress is from Oma Gote, it's sleeveless so it's before summer is gone for good we thought it would be a good idea for you to wear it. Otherwise it will be too small next year. The other dress is handmade by Grandma Chan. It should be nice in the fall because it's wool. Gonna need to wear leggings though.
