Philadelphia Trip (Sep 12 to 18)

We went to Philadelphia to see Steven's family. Oh, it was fun!

Steven's dad is very funny. He make us laugh all the time with his funny jokes/stories....

We went to Food festival in West Chester.
Steven is eating Kobe beef burger (Kobe slider) He liked it a lot and he ate three burgers!!! Truth is...the burgers were so tiny. He could finish with a couple of bites.

I had a huge Turkey leg.

Labor Day BBQ
Since we are traveling a lot, we would love to be at home when we can so didn't have any big plans for this 4 day weekend but thought it was good to do something outside! We went to the park closed to our place and did BBQ.
Steven is trying to make fire but he is still sleepy. (hee, hee, hee...)

We had corn, steak, vegies and yaki-onigiri (grilled rice balls)

Are they ready yet?

We read on the grass after the BBQ and had a great last day of the summer.

Our friends in SF got a Labradoodle and we went to see him.

"I am Ziggy and am only 3 months (or so) old."

We played with him and he is soooooo cute.

Oh, we didn't forget you guys, Lucy. When we came home, we played with what we have :) I tried to put my latest work on Lucy's head but she didn't like the hat.
So I will use it as bowl for small things. These three are my recent projects.
