UTA Homecoming

We had such a great time at UTA's homecoming a couple of weeks ago.  It is just amazing to see how much the campus has changed in the six years since I started working there.  They've really transformed the campus from what used to feel like a commuter school into a thriving on campus community.  Lots of new restaurants, shops, on-campus housing, and on campus energy has resulted in fun activities that the whole family enjoys.  They had a fun parade, activities and face painting for the kiddos, and then the big basketball game versus OU.  Good times were had by all, though Pla Shee was disappointed we weren't staying for the "after party."  :)

Our trip to Washington DC

I had a social work conference this past weekend in Washington, DC, and we decided to make it a family affair and take the whole crew to visit their cousins, aunties, uncles, and grandma.  We had a blast!

 Riding the metro...who knew it could be so much fun?

Ruby and Kai found a bench to rest on during our walk around Old Town.

Ruby loves riding on her Daiya's shoulders.

Our handsome almost 12 year old.

A few months ago, we connected via Facebook with a wonderful family who adopted Kai's biological sister, who was born last January.  They live outside of DC, and we were thrilled that we were able to meet for lunch during our trip to meet their sweet girl.  She is such a cutie, and it was so much fun to see her interact with Kai.  It will be fun to keep in touch as they grow up!

Ruby loves her auntie!

 Cousin love!
