My family of four returned to the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area in July 2013 after finishing our second international relocation (third, if you count our 3 years in Miami!). I originally began this blog in July 2011 to share the experiences of our life in the Land of Smiles and our travels around the region with our family and friends. Now that we are re-settled on U.S. soil, I will continue to post what, I hope, will be interesting observations about where we live and what we do and see.

Colors Of The Season
While I was out and about in Nichada yesterday, I noticed a lot of bushes flowering in holiday colors.
This is the street in to Nichada from the front gate (you can see ISB directly beyond that traffic circle). Not only are the colors of the bushes very festive but the "candy cane" curbs add a seasonal touch as well!
The photo below shows the street that runs in front of ISB (which you can see in the background).
The colors of the flowers on this bougainvillea tree reminded me of rainbow sherbert!
The group of trees in the photo below were just loaded with flowers that looked so pretty against the green leaves.
For Kevin's welcome home dinner...
The Thai version of Moo Goo Gai Pan (flat noodles, chicken, bok choy, mushrooms, egg, and bean sprouts). This is one dish that PeePorn never makes the same way twice.
Pomelo salad (of course).
Vegetables with a sweet & savory dip.
Fresh fruit plate - mango and watermelon.
Caitlynne's birthday is tomorrow. The day really snuck up on me this year and I am a bit behind with preparations for her special day. She has gone back and forth on what she wants to do but with Christopher still recovering and it being a school night, her options are rather limited. I offered to take her and a few friends downtown and out to dinner this weekend but she is still deciding.
