Life lately – inlaws visit


Inlaws came to visit us last month. They were particularly excited to meet Lizzy. She’s such a cutie and adapted really well to the grandma and grandpa. My parents had to go to shanghai during that time due to an emergency dental issue, so Lizzy was being taken care by new grandparents right away. She did so well.

Sofia also welcomed grand-parents. She’s such a friendly girl and always get to be friend with visitors from day 1. Both grandparents like her as well… spent time playing with her everyday.

Last week Tony and I had a special Valentine’s day celebration. The original idea was to go on a solo-date. But due to DC traffic in the evening, I couldn’t take Sofia back home.

Sofia had fun feeding the birds

then we went to Fontaine for lunch… my favorite spot for french crepes

I had the farmers crepe that had assorted veggies and goat cheese. So so good. I love that their crepe is made with buckwheat, the real deal.

then we went to Sofia’s first piano class. I got her enrolled for a group class for 4-5 years old. I had to be with her the whole class, not just accompanying, but interacting and participating the class.

She liked the class so I enrolled her right away. It’s the Yamaha method. Let’s see how she likes it. So far so good because there’s little real playing with the piano, but more on learning musicality with songs and games.

For in-laws last dinner here, we made a BBQ (grilled chicken, pork tenderloin, salmon, and sweet potato), and a salad.

They loved the meal and even took the leftover sweet potato for the flight back. 🙂

On Sunday, Sofia and I went to watch “Disney Ice show: dream big”.

Lizzy stayed at home, played with grandma who came back last weekend.

oh… my cutie turned 10 months few days ago.

she’s starting with the swing…. hard to tell from her expression whether she likes it or not

IMG 4055

still undecided about this one too

I did a lot of mea preparation for the week on Monday… and rest. The past few weekends have been hectic, too many activities, too little rest. Finally catching up with my t0-do list. 🙂
