Time to go to Texas... 2013

After a great couple of weeks with JuJu in Korea we followed her to Texas (on different planes).  We got an unexpected opportunity to go home bc Daddy had to go to the gulf... so we hoped on a plane with him to see family and get some good food from home.  We were all excited for a three week trip back home... it was going to be packed (our plans were to see family in Seattle, visit family and friends in Texas, see doctors about getting Asher circumcised, getting our teeth cleaned, shopping and eating.  It was going to be busy... we got our bags packed and we were ready to go.

Off we go (not a great pic of me.. but this is not about me... HE HE HE)

Since Blake was going on Business... he got Business seats but he let Asher an I take them.  We had a total of three legs.  Busan to Tokyo, Tokyo to Dallas and then Dallas to Houston. The first leg Asher had his own seat (things were starting off very well).

Time to eat... 

Once we landed in Tokyo we had a short lay over and then we got on another plane and headed to Texas... the flight was 12 hours long and the little man slept 10 total hours.  The trick was flying in the middle of the night... and the big boy also did great in the back of the bus watching about 10 movies... and took a little nap.

Once we got to Houston we hit the road running... we had tons of appointments and things to do but someone was really tired...JuJu took him to the grocery store and this is what happened.

 Here is a pic of Pierce waiting his turn at the dentist.

But we still did a lot of playing... we had not been home in the summer in years and were excited about getting in the pool and playing outside.  We also had to introduce KW to some good ol kid games...

Thanks to JuJu's smart thinking and kind heart... she had got lots of toys from her friend for Asher to play in/with. He was cruising and Grace loved to chase him... or was it the other way around.

How old are you?

While driving around... I noticed we were back in Houston... check out those rems.

Daddy and I even got a date night... see how dark it is in the background and no kids... wow... thanks JuJu and KW.

Come back again to see more fun...

Love our time with JuJu (ALWAYS)!

We had a blast with Aunt JuJu... we are very blessed that she can take the time to come and see us and we sure do hope how much it is appreciated.  We love her for many reasons but quality time is one of her strengths and she sure does make us feel loved.  Besides how Dad and I feel... the boys love her to the moon and back.  Our time together is always filled with laughter, relaxation, support (from her), counseling (:-)), tons of biblical knowledge and my faith in God is always renewed every time I am around her.  The pics will never do justice of our fun times together but you can get the idea.

These first pics are from the Hyundai Motor Tour...


There was lots of posing going on... appropriate and inappropriate.



We even got a quick glimpse of the "finished" cars getting loaded on the container ship.

JuJu always makes a face at me every time I get the camera out (but she is a sport) but aren't these next few pics worth it.. love them all of our time just hanging out at home.

I love these photos... they are definitely related... they look so much alike.
P.S.  The reason for the pony tail was Pierce had just come back from Art School and his teacher did this to get his bangs out of his eyes... so cute but daddy was not a fan.

 One of the fun cars in our basement... we had to take a pic with it... you won't see this in the states.
 One day we went on a walk to the Bamboo forest... Pierce had his camo hat on and was ready for the walk... Asher was keen as well.

Pretty cool.

Our big helper.. he loves to push Asher.

We went bug hunting... and we caught a butterfly (we think of Sara every time)

JuJu introduced us to some sermons from FaithBible in the woodlands... we started studying Genesis together as a family... So cute right...

JuJu took Pierce on another tour of the Hyundai Shipyard... 

On a separate day we went to the Oggii Pottery Village Museum... Ulsan is known for their pottery especially the celadon pottery.  This village holds the largest piece of pottery in the world (sorry no pic)

Another shot of the cool hair do.

I can't tell you how many puzzles we did together... but it was all fun and made for some great conversation in the wee hours of the night.

JuJu even got a firework show...

There is just something not "normal" about this picture... 

We love you JuJu.

Pierce wanted to say "I hope you come back.  I love you."
