Fall Comes To Southern California

A couple of weekends ago we went to Oak Glen and picked our pumpkin. Oak Glen is one of the few places in Southern California that fall visits. We had fun sampling different varieties of apples, tasting fresh cider (and then buying a gallon), enjoying the fall colors, and of course picking out the best pumpkin we could find. This one... My first, very own pumpkin! I loved how this effect made the pumpkins black. Martian pumpkins! Okay, here's the real one. Delicious, fresh apple cider At the Wild Animal Park. This picture always makes me want to sing, "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands". :-) Nursing while enjoying the park--the story of my life lately! Kasen is not a huge fan of regular food yet. We keep trying to introduce it everyday (and have been for over 2 months), but he's not very excited about it yet. Apple sampling.

Great Weekend

We've recovered from the flu and are pretty much 100% again. Sorry for the lag in posts. I know I have been negligent.

This weekend was fantastic! Kai started the weekend by taking me out to our favorite Korean restaurant for dinner on Friday night. We had our favorite Korean dishes: Dulcot Bee-Beem Bop (rice, vegetables, hot sauce, and raw egg served in a fire hot stone bowl that cooks the egg), Vegetable Mandu (similar to vegetable dumplings), Sushi (rice and vegetables wrapped in Seaweed), and Miso Soup (tofu and seaweed in a authentic Asian broth). It always brings back great memories from our year spent in South Korea. We got to practice our Korean there times!

On Saturday morning, we got up early and met The Calvert's for breakfast. I ordered pumpkin pancakes...YUM! After fueling up with a large breakfast, we hiked San Bernardino in the brilliant fall colors. Had perfect hiking weather and great times as always with the Calvert's. All the pictures in this post are from this adventure.

Once we got back, Kai took me out for ice cream at Coldstone's. Lately we've been frequenting the local yogurt places, but this time we opted for all-out-ice-cream. I got "Chocolate Devotion" and Kai got "Birthday Cake Remix" (2 of our favorites). We ate our indulgences overlooking the night-lit valley from a "secret" lookout point that is special to us while listening to some Jason Mraz. Then we went home and had movie night in. Hard to beat a weekend like this! Great times spent with 2 of the awesomest guys in my life and great friends!

My Dear Neglected Blog

No you have not been forgotten.
Life has happened.
The dust is starting to settle.
I will post again soon.
Yes, these are all just excuses.
Yes, there is another...
