Ollie had a blast at his birthday party! His favorite parts were playing with balloons, eating Cocoa Puffs off of his cupcake, and hearing everyone sing happy birthday to him.
(By the way, there were lots of other kids there. We’re generally careful not to post pictures of other people’s children, out of respect for their privacy.)
Ollie can now stand/walk while holding on to things. He can’t wait to run around, just like his big brother.
Grandma Mary Ann came up for a nice long visit, and brought cousins Nick and Alyssa along. It was pretty crazy having four kids around, but they all got along great.
Noah’s been taking soccer classes this summer. He loves it!
Riding the train while we wait.
We finally took our first trip into British Columbia, and luckily it was for a wonderful occasion–my cousin Aisha’s wedding. A lot of Cheng family members were able to make it, so it was basically a mini family reunion for us as well.
Aisha and Scott.
Apparently Noah found his train more interesting than the lifelong commitment Aisha and Scott were making to each other.
This was the closest we could get to a family photo.
Brothers. From left: Wei-Chih (9), Carl (5), Wei-Tih (4, my dad), Smiley (3, father of the bride).
The cousins and their ladies. From left: Dagmar (1.1+), Mike (1.1), Joe (4.2), Amy (4.2+), Jon (4.1), Aarti, Adam (3.1), Natalie.
Me and Jon. (The downside of the beautiful sunny weather was massively overexposed backgrounds all day.)

Amy took this one. They line up for a picture… so she goes behind them. I love that.
My mom and Ollie.
Noah was a ridiculous dancing machine during the reception. We had to forcibly remove him, kicking and screaming, from the dance floor at 11PM.
In late June, Amy and I ditched the kids and flew to the Finger Lakes region of New York for Lisa and Damon’s wedding. Although we missed the kids a lot, we had a wonderful time–catching up with old and new friends, taking in the beautiful scenery, and of course, taking hundreds and hundreds of pictures.
Kelly Sullivan (official photog, friend of the couple, and long-time Park Streeter) captured some incredible images–she has some serious talent.
Below are some of the ones we got. Captions below.
That’s Lisa’s mom, grandmother, and grandfather in the foreground.
Lisa and Damon’s first dance.

Wish I could remember what Karen was laughing about…
Obligatory getaway car shot.
We stayed in a wonderful bed & breakfast run by Lisa’s neighbors and longtime friends. If they had a website I would link to it. Anyway, it’s called Pleasant View Farms and we highly recommend it if you’re looking for a place to stay in the Finger Lakes area.
Yes, we’re way behind on updates! Our June/July have been action packed, thus the lack of new photos being posted. But don’t worry, we’ve been taking a ton of photos the last two months–it’s just taking us some time to catch up!
Here are some shots from Amy and the kids’ visit with Amy’s grandparents in California.
