sugar and spice...

...and everything nice.
we had our 20 week ultrasound on tuesday morning and our sweet baby is very healthy.  strong heartbeat and a healthy little body.

highlight of the day.... 
we're going to have a daughter!  
yep, true to my inkling, she's a girl.

she was very active, kicking her legs, tucking her arms behind her back and even looking very lady-like crossing her legs in one of our photos.  what a little cutie!

what a waffle

we started out the weekend with breakfast in bed (thanks to my handsome husband).  waffled french toast is now a new favorite in our home.   the recipe is below.  we enjoyed ours with cinnamon and recommend it, yum!

    Waffled french toast
    Serves 2

    3 large eggs
    1/2 cup milk
    2 tablespoons melted butter

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Dash of salt

    4 slices of bread

    1. In a shallow container, whisk together all ingredients except bread.
    2. Soak a slice of bread in the mixture, flipping the slice to thoroughly absorb the liquid.
    3. Waffle until golden brown. Waffling time will vary depending on your waffle iron and heat setting.

    We ate ours with a pat of organic butter, more cinnamon and maple syrup.


    afterward we headed to our friends the harrisons lovely home in long beach for a barbeque.  burgers, grilled tofu and veggies, homemade iced tea and card games in the sun drenched backyard.  what a great way to spend the afternoon.  thanks matt and jenna!

    today we went for a walk at dog beach with the morgans and their adorable pooch lucy.  it was great to catch up and check out all the action on the packed beachside.  i think everyone in huntington was out today.  our walk was followed by tamales and fish tacos at fiesta grill and a trip to the craft fair (which was not so crafty) but worth the short drive.  

    what a great way to spend the weekend!

    oh and here is kevin on his first day of work this friday.  he started his position in research and development at the huntington beach location of boeing.  i had to grab a picture, it's kinda like the first day of school.

    asian adventure

    some of you may already know, kevin recently had the opportunity to travel to both vietnam and hong kong for his international business class at the university of california at irvine.  while i was uber bummed to not come along, i was thrilled he was able to have the adventure.  he had the most amazing time touring the cities and learning more about the business world and culture in two very different countries and economies.  he also had the opportunity to visit with friends who retired back to vietnam and spent lots of time with his class teammates, who have become really great friends.

    some of the highlights were riding on the back of moped through the busy streets of ho cho mihn city, the glass bottom cable car that brought them to the top of a hill beside the giant buddha and monastery, many delicious meals, speaking at the saigon institute of technology,  touring intel, enjoing the local culture and their farewell dinner at the top of victoria peak.

    having dinner with friends damin, leanne and their family.
    the team: matt, mike, erin and kevin (alpa was on maternity leave with sweet baby dev).

    p.s. these pictures were my favorites.  if your interested in seeing more, here are the links to hundreds more.  vietnam, hong kong and videos from both countries.
