Mongolian BBQ

This was my choice of dipping sauce for a recent meal at a 'hot pot' restaurant.....imagine a cauldron of boiling soup and you chuck your choice of raw meats, vegetables, seafood, and more into it. 2 thumbs up.

I hauled, literally, this crew to the big playground today. They think it's the greatest thing although we almost didn't make it up the small hill along the way.

Beautiful weather in Tokyo

A real blessing to have some dedicated family time, with beautiful weather. And Mickey continues to run a tight ship. Everything is in tip top shape.

Nemo's Mom

At the Nemo exhibit,

Rachel: it's too bad Nemo's Mom died....eaten by a shark.

Elijah: that was not a shark Rachel

Dad: It was a barracuda I believe. You know Rachel, even turtles sometimes eat fish. Your turtle Gloria (out house pet) will one day eat fish too.

Rachel: Well, we will just get her Daddy fish.

Dad: Great idea Rach.

The kids invented "sock wars" on the tramp today. So refined....

Rachel makes flowers seem so much more beautiful.

(hey Lisa, yesterday's park was Century Park - it's very close to our home and big enough that we can find some space to ourselves)
