Moab celebration cruise

Kelly works for a high-tech company, and like the rest of them, they use code names for projects that they work on. There are a lot top secrets in the industry, not quite like the "if I tell you, I'd have to kill you" sort of thing, but that he's not really supposed to talk about. For example, in public, they should not discuss which companies they are working for, what they are designing and what kind of chips they are making--and I'm not talking about Ruffles or Lays chips either.

Now that they are celebrating that something is done, I can reveal the name of their recent project, which is Moab. I don't really know if the code name itself is confidential, because sometimes he tells me things they are doing because he knows I won't have any idea what he's talking about or what means, and that I will not be passing any tips on to their competition. In any case, when we were in Moab, Utah, this past summer, Kelly bought plenty of Moab stickers, a couple of jackets for us, etc., and took things back to his team.

Yesterday, we took a leisurely lunchtime cruise around Town Lake, traveling under the bat bridge along Austin's city center, and spent three hours with his coworkers, some of whom brought their significant others along. It was a relaxing afternoon, and we snacked on fajitas and nachos, and I took a few pictures. This is what Austin looks like on December 1 from the lake, most enticing.

Fun I want to see pictures of the cruise. I don't even know what your husband does for a living!

Oooh, that sounds fun. Was the weather ok? I know you were nervous about the cold but it did warm up a little yesterday. Can't wait to see pics :)

Kelly is an electrical engineer, Heid. Both bachelor's and master's degrees are in that field. He does chip design verification and is a manager. He's really smart! I've added a few pictures now, obviously.

Those are really cool pics. How fun. Maybe we should do that before (IF) we leave Austin down the road. We have yet to do so many things here that we've wanted to do. We've got some exploring to do!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party!

Hopefully this title, Book of Mormon Stories Pool Party, does not sound irreverent, because as an Activity Days leader, I felt compelled to come up with a fun end-of-the-summer event that is also uplifting, and after all, who doesn't love a splash in the pool on a hot day in August?  My current church calling, or official role that I volunteer for, allows me to plan two activities each month for girls ages 8 to 11, that will encourage them to learn and live the gospel, serve others, and use the talents Heavenly Father has given them, to learn to do many good things.  This year's seminary course of study for high school students is The Book of Mormon, and since I am a huge fan of this inspired book of scripture, I came up with this idea to have each girl show up to my house with a written summary of one of her favorite stories from within its many pages, and share it with the rest of the girls, while outside in our swimsuits near our backyard swimming pool!  As each girl shares…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
