A Day at the Beach

For Emmy's school she read Harold and the Purple Crayon. In the book a boy goes on a trip with his purple crayon. He makes a ferocious dragon to guard an apple tree. It s-s-scared him so much he made a sea with his trembling purple crayon! He lands on a sandy beach and has a picnic with nine different kinds of pie. We went on our own picnic to the sandy beach with two different kinds of pie.

We enjoyed some family time at the same time!
The sunset was just beautiful!
It was a time for our family to be together. We haven't had that for a long time!

Soccer 2010

Emmy Xiang and Gracie enjoyed playing soccer with the local city league. This year. Both of them aren't necessarily "sporty" girls: Emmy Xiang spends more time smiling for the camera and rolling on the ground than anything else, and Gracie is just a purebred cheerleader and social butterfly. Nonetheless, we had a ton of fun watching them persevere out there! Great job, girlies!
