The kids having fun...


It was a glorious day, enjoying the warm of the sun and perfect occasion to catch up with everyone.



Looks like Kevin and Kristy are also having a good time.

The whole family!


Xinh and my brother joined us later in the day...


I don't get to see my brother very often so this is really nice to get together.

Apparently Prixa (Ham) played in a tournament that was televised in France.  Prixa ended winning 1st place and won 1,700 Euros.


Prixa looked professional in this picture but at home he ended  losing to Hoa and Kevin.  We teased him so much that he got beaten by two Americans.

Hoa and Kevin ended cleaning up everybody that evening.
