We got in late Wednesday night, and Riley was a champ on the airplane. On Thursday, Chi Hai, Brooke and Aidan came over to Ba Ma's house (where we stayed the entire week) first thing in the morning. Mom couldn't stand it at work so she took a half day and we all went to the OC fair. We got our fix of fair foods, a heavy dosage of giant sausages and of course the sweet sweet scent of farm animals:
That night, Di Ut and Dave with the kiddos came over for dinner, and it ended up being an impromptu party at Mom and Dad's. The next day Mom and Bao took the day off of work and we went to the pool at the Lam residence. Aidan did a phenomenal job during swim class. Its amazing to see how quickly these kids grow up. That evening, Chi Hai grilled up some burgers and hot dogs and Anh Hai Mike came home. We also got a surprise visit from Khoackie + Lily. So glad I got a chance to snuggle my new niece:
And here I am, happy to be home sweet home but definitely with a strong case of post-vacation blues. I can't stress enough how much I love my family and how much I cherish the time we get to spend with them. There really are no words, it truly is something you just have to experience, and I am so eager for the chance to do it again. Love you, family, very much!
