On Tuesday morning, jet lag got the better of Vale, who woke up at 1:00 am or so, ready to roll. I breastfed her, then Kyle took her out and about and let her get some energy out at two playgrounds, one in my parents’ condo complex and then another down the street. Vale was … More 滿月園 National Park, SanXia Old Street, 11/20/2018
We left for Taiwan on November 17, 2018. We drove up to LA on a Saturday evening, and arrived earlier than we intended, which ended up being a good thing because between Chase and EVA, someone fucked up Vale’s name on her ticket, and although we were advised this had all been resolved, we showed … More First “Day” in Taiwan! 11/17-11/19
On our last day in Portland, we started out with good old hotel breakfast, then walked to a hipster coffee joint where we got a latte and peach hand pie to go. We made our way to Laurel Hurst park, which was another sylvan expanse of green, and featured a glittering, deep emerald pond. It … More Portland 10/7/2018 – Goat to have fun!

We had refried beans, scrambled eggs, grilled cactus, and a pork stew with cactus. The scrambled eggs were standard hotel-style scrambled eggs. The … More Sunday Funday in Tijuana

After breakfast, we went for a hike on the Lahaina Pali trail. It was only about 5 miles, but was quite steep, and involved scrambling up … More Maui – 7/13/2018
Due to the lack of pictures taken this day, it is difficult for us to fully reconstruct what went down. For sure, Jenn briefly read a few pages of Civil War stories by Ambrose Bierce out on the hotel balcony, and took in the palm trees and waves while drinking sparkling grapefruit water. This was … More Maui – 7/12/18
We woke up and took a stroll to Central Park, which was not a very long walk from our hotel located near Times Square. We stopped at Pret-a-Manger for some coffee (iced for me; it was really hot this weekend!) and did some meditation and Hynobirthing relaxation practice in the park. We took a brief … More New York 6/10/17
