summer festival/picnic

Milo had a summer festival/picnic
with his friends from the Japanese play group.

It was more likely a picnic but Yuri couldn't stop wearing
the Japanese traditional festival outfit (plus baby in the baby carrier).

The babies wore "Jinbei," a kind of Japanese traditional summer clothing.
They were so cute playing together in Jinbei.
Lucius and Milo were stealing somebody's snacks...
Milo also got a new friend, Akira.
We could tell that Milo was so happy to hang out with him.
Akira and Milo were stealing somebody's toy...
Jimbe (Lucius's middle name) in Jinbei!!!!!!

The Bite of Oregon

We forgot to post this for a while, but we went to the bite of Oregon 2 weekends ago.
Silas and Yuri thought Milo might enjoy all local foods.
Therefore, they decided to check it out all for Milo, yes all for Milo...

Oh my god...
We had the best pork slider ever!!!!
(not even exaggerating...)
This is it.
(by Chef Jason Nussbaumer)
Of course, we tried some dessert.
Milo wanted to try the mix berry shortcake so bad!
Oh yeah,
it was all for Milo...

After almost a year of car sharing with Silas (thank you!), Yuri bought a car!!
She spent all her money she had saved in Chicago for this car
in order to take Milo to soccer practices or ballet lessons...
What a sweet mother!

thank you!

One day, each of us received sweet gifts...

Milo got this pewter cup with his name on from great grandma Sally.
Thank you!
He seemed to really like it.
Silas received these "congrats" flowers from Yuri's parents.
Thank you!
and Yuri received a 3rd elephant from her husband.
Thank you!
