This was our trip to Kaohsiung: We had to run for the train, because we arrived at the station just as the train was preparing to leave. Running downstairs carrying strollers is something no one should ever have to do. Robert and I stood for the 50 minute train ride. We were late to the … More Botanical gardens – Kaohsiung, Taiwan
In Hong Kong we mostly explored the area nearest to our hotel (given that we were slammed with jet lag!), but we were daring enough to venture farther out once in a while. We just aren’t theme park people (well, Robert and I aren’t), and there was no way I was going to try (and … More Hong Kong Science Museum, et al.
We arrived at Bryce Canyon with no real knowledge of it or even being able to remember having seen any pictures of it. It was on our route and it was free (Every Kid in a Park) so in we went. You can’t really walk to any of the hikes, it is more of a … More Bryce Canyon
For the last few years, I have spent a lot of time sitting in our local orthodontic office. On one of these many visits, I picked up a book (it was titled “Natural formations around the world” or Natural wonders everyone should see” or something like that), and as I was flipping through, I saw … More Horseshoe Bend
The Grand Canyon was breathtaking; let me just start with that. It was well worth the time and energy of taking six kids, ages 2 to 16, across three states by myself. I was worried at first. Will someone get left at a gas station? Will someone fall into the canyon? Will one of my … More The Grand Canyon
We had a very busy month, but I suppose every month is going to be chaotic with two babies. With school and Halloween activities the month just seemed to fly by! My goal is to get into the groove of taking pictures again so that when I start my new 365 project in January it … More October!
This was vacation week for us and ironically that is the time when I am least likely to take pictures. With so many little ones for us to watch over, I rarely have the time or inclination to take out my camera while out and about. Though the pictures do not show it, we relaxed, … More Vacation! 06/23/13 – 06/29/13
Miss 4’s The Book of Weathers, it documents different kinds of weather she likes. The weather unit really caught her imagination. Miss 2 as happy Eeyore. Miss 4 and 5 had apparently made friends with an ant. Then, Miss 12 inadvertently killed it. This is the grave the made for it. Miss 4’s goal is … More 06/02/13 – 06/08/13
Science experiment day! We spent the day doing experiments and discussing why they work. The clear favorite of the day was the one involving Diet Coke and Mentos. We watched the Mythbusters episode discussing that experiment, and then went outside so the little ones could try it. They were amazed at how high the soda … More 05/23/13
