Home Leave Part 1.1 - Pu Family in Albuquerque

It's kind of fun going back through all my vacation photos and trying to pick out just the right ones, but it's also incredibly time consuming. And I am not a girl with a lot of time on her hands right now. C is back from boarding school this week for her Spring Break, so we are spending more time than usual away from home showing her around the city. Also, Husband and J leave next week to go on her class trip to Xi'an, so I'm trying to squeeze in some quality J time, too, before they jet off.* What I'm trying to say is, ya get what ya get! 

Husband and De-I showing off their custom made suits from our tailor in the Philippines.

AinA and daughter, L, having a giggle.

MR and son, A, debating whether or not to brave the cold outside and join in the foam sword battle.

Hiking with Husband in the foothills of the gorgeous Sandia Mountains, which are just steps away from my parents' backyard.

Sandia selfie!

Cousins enjoying a day at the Albuquerque aquarium.

 Albuquerque Science Center (aka Explora) - hands down the best activity with kids in Albuquerque.

Everybody loves playing in the box!

N grinning because he probably just knocked down the baby gate for the 15 millionth time. 

C enjoying some baby snuggle time.

*As a side note can I just say how freaking crazy it is to that my 3rd grader's class trip is to Xi'an, China. My class field trips were to places like, I don't know, the zoo or the park. While I want to say that my kids are so incredibly fortunate (and they are), I also feel it necessary to point out that trips like this are not covered by the tuition, which is paid by the government. These extra activities are paid out of pocket and we don't have an opt out choice. So before you feel even a twinge of jealousy just remember how many extra thousands of dollars I have to pay out of pocket for my kids to have these kinds of experiences!
