Jude’s First Birthday!

This first year flew by! It’s been a great ride so far with lots of laughs, some traveling and a lot of poop diapers but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. This little dude has been the biggest blessing and every minute spent with him makes me forget about all of the nonsense that goes on in the world around me.

A big “thank you” to everyone that made it out, we really appreciate all of you! Happy birthday, best friend. Mommy and daddy love you!

Collin Tjin / Coach Keion Kindred

Since Collin’s been playing more and more basketball, we figured we’d take him up to Los Angeles to get in a Friday night training session with coach Keion Kindred. Even though it’s a bit of a drive, the experience with coach Keion and his team was well worth it!

Tokyo, Kyoto and More!

After I wrapped up my Tokyo Auto Salon workload, we hung around Tokyo for a day or so and then hopped on the Shinkansen to Kyoto. Having been there the previous year without Jude, I figured we’d make our way down so they could see it. On the agenda were two places I had never been before, the first being the Kinkaku-ji, officially named Rokuon-ji or the Golden Pavilion and the second was the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove as well as a few others that I’ve made sure to stop by every time I’ve been down to Kyoto.

It’s always nice to get away from Tokyo, even if it’s for a day or two, just to get down to the “old” Japan. Regardless of where we end up, there’s no doubt that Japan will always be at the top of the list of places to see for me.

Jude’s First Christmas!

As usual we decided to keep Christmas somewhat low key but since it was Jude’s first we got him everything he didn’t even know he wanted. Toys didn’t really interest him but everything else in the kitchen did so we got him some random stuff that he just liked chewing on. Dude’s a weirdo… our weirdo.

Halloweeeeeeen!

Jude’s first halloween was a success! Since he’s not too fond of wearing things on his head we racked our brain to come up with something and in the end we went with the obvious choice… a hot dog!

Family Time At Tanaka Farms

Since we’d never been to Tanaka Farms, Kimberly thought it would be a great idea to go check it out with Jude. Little did she know that there would also be four billion other people with the same idea.
