Springing into Spring!

After Fukuoka, Bridgette and I flew back to Hong Kong for 2 days, and then flew home to the Bay Area with Brianne (for her Spring Break). By then, I had taken 8 flights in 5 weeks, to 5 different places in 3 separate countries. Needless to say, it felt fantastic to be home, and to reunite with Alan!

The activities didn’t quite slow down though, with Mimi and Brianne here for the week, in addition to our cousins visiting from Australia. We had lots of family gatherings and it was wonderful to gather with our cousins from afar!

Cousins’ dinner at our house: (It was impossible to get the little cousins to be in a group photo together!)

Rare (and precious) occasion where cousins from Australia, HK, and the US all got to hang out:
