zoo zoo zoo

It was really cold,
so we decided to go Oregon Zoo
(cold weather = less people!)

Yeah, it was really cold
although Silas forgot to grab his jacket...

Even the bears were cuddling to keep each other warm.
The sea lion section was our favorite.
It was surrounded by warm blue light.
Milo was fascinated by the blue color.
Then we moved to the Africa section.
Silas was excited about it
because "Africa" sounded pretty warm...
Hi giraffe.
Did Milo like it?

a moment...

Yesterday, Yuri walked hand in hand with Milo for the first time.
That was such a rewarding moment for her as his mother...
Milo has told his parents
"raising a kid is not easy, but it is all worth it!"

Hello Lemonnie

This is little belated post, but...
On November 16th, the Yoshida family welcomed a baby girl,
Lemonnie Koharu Yoshida.

We are so so so so happy for them,
and cannot wait to meet her in person.
Go Lemonnie,
Go new mama Kayoko & papa Masa!
They have already nominated Milo for her boyfriend.

baby bowling

fun fun

Black Friday

While many people were cat fighting
over the best deal items at shopping malls today,
we decided to go to Forest Park for a short hike with our dog.
(we are dog people, not cat people...)
This gorgeous park is located only 10 minutes outside of downtown Portland,
and it has lots and lots of trails to choose from.
Yes, we are so lucky!
Milo loved it.
That was the best way to enjoy the Black Friday.

"Oyasumi mama-san"

It is just nothing but so amazing and precious to see him growing up.

one beautiful day

Yesterday was such a beautiful day,
so we took a short walk to Maricara park.
This was Milo's look when we got the park
so... sure enough,
5 minutes later, he looked like this:
His mom thought that he was missing the gorgeous day
but he might have gotten the best out of it...
Napping in the woods on the perfect fall day...
It sounds pretty good, doesn't it?!
Well done, son.

Tryon Park

We went to Tryon Creek for an afternoon hike.
Milo was talking to his papa during the hike
and kept checking a female hiker we came across...
(not joking!)
what did you teach him?!

Hi Hunter!

In the morning of Nov 2nd,
The Roney's welcomed the newest member to their family...
Mr. Hunter Roney!
He is a healthy and sweet little dude
Milo was really curious about the smaller human been than himself.
When Milo saw Hunter in his mom's arm...
he decided to show off what he can do as the older human been.
We cannot wait to see that
Hunter and Milo are getting into lots of troubles together :-)


In a cold evening...
Kip and Link were snuggling together on the beanbag,
being cute..

They tried to ignore this little monster
but he kicked them out...
oh godzilla...

1st Halloween

Happy Halloween!
At Milo's 1st Halloween...

he was a hamburger!!!
(with his mustard hat...)
Then, Silas was Bob's Big Boy!!
Perfect father-son collaboration :-)
Milo went to the Japanese playgroup Halloween party.
Look at all cute babies in their costumes!
Yuri was an astronaut
(she borrowed Silas's Krux commercial costume...)
Milo just played at the playgroup space
as nothing was different from the usual...
Yay, burger!

On the 31st, Yuri took Milo to trick or treat to an apartment in NW.
Milo got lots of candies
which were eaten by his parents...
Good job, burger!
