OMSI had a cool dinosaur exhibition

and the little Silas and Milo enjoyed it

as well as their own poppet show.

Silas was heading to the airport

after he said bye to these two

Milo vs Kip

Seriously, this boy is so wild and non stop playing all day long.

Milo and Kip are often fighting over balls and sticks.

family fishing trip

We including Milo's bunny went family fishing today.

We found this beautiful spot,

but Milo wanted to eat snacks first.

Then Milo enjoyed to being on the "island."

Silas was showing him some fly larvas in their stone shells.
Milo was good at finding them too.

Once Silas caught a fish,

Milo wanted to fish too.

It was a gorgeous day, and just being the river made all of us happy.

On the away back home, Silas was teasing Keena with his ice cream...


Keena grows up everyday and have more facial expressions.

Today, we received the unexpected love in mail.
Junichi sent us some thoughtful Japanese gifts including the kimono onesie for Keena.

And anna sent us these "Silas and Yuri" dolls
(with a little extra gingerness :)

We feel so lucky to have great friends.

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to this super papa.
He has been handling his new role as a father with two kids  pretty well.
Big thanks and lots of love to him as well as our fathers - Jay and Toshi!

By the way, this was a conversation between Milo and Yuri on the other day:
Milo: Mama sometime calls papa Silas.
Yuri: That's right.
Milo: Papa sometime call mama...
