eastward ho!

Nancy’s cousin Chris, his wife Rie, and their baby Jasmine are moving from Hawaii to Iowa. They’re doing a cross-country drive to see the sights of the West along the way, but first they had to get their car from Oahu to the mainland. Fortunately, Oakland (one of the major West Coast shipping ports) is only an hour away from our house, so Chris arranged to have their car shipped by boat there and flew in to San Francisco, and they stayed with us a few days before setting off on their trip. It was great seeing them again, and seeing how much Jasmine has grown!

As you may recall :-) Nancy and I were in Hawaii with Chris and Rie at Christmas when Jasmine was born, so she’s about 19 months old now.

Jasmine’s a real cutie and very friendly, and she’s starting to talk in both English and Japanese. Jasmine enjoyed helping Aunt Nancy and Willow in the kitchen…


… and playing with Hank and Maggie.


The puppies are still pretty excited whenever they meet new people, but Jasmine loved it and dove right in! :-)
