Petting Zoo in Korea
The average household in South Korea is comprised of 2.5 people. Obviously that means that the average family has less than 1 child. Yet, there is more kid stuff here than I’ve seen in any city across America! There are zoos, playgrounds, toy stores, and kids cafes up the wazoo! So for our kids, that means they practically get...
Chinatown in Korea
We have now been in South Korea for a full month, and I can’t believe how much we’ve squeezed into our time here so far! Theme Parks, bath houses, markets, Island hopping, popsicle stores, getting baptized, and now summer school starts! Check out our podcast recapping all the fun we’ve had this month, and our daily travel journals for...
Daughter's First Sacrament Meeting Talk at Church Daughter's First Sacrament Meeting Talk at Church
Today at church, in the Songdo Branch of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints here in South Korea, our eight year old daughter was asked to be the youth speaker for Sacrament Meeting. It was a very memorable Sunday, as the day of our daughter's first sacrament meeting talk! When you attend a service where your...
Family Gangnam Style
Every weekend since we have arrived here in South Korea there is a street fair held at Triple Street. And every weekend since we’ve arrived we’ve wanted to check it out, but we always had something going on that prevented us from being able to. So with nothing else on the schedule, we decided today would be the day...

Forky
The last two days we’ve been feeling a little run down, and with the threatening storm clouds overhead inside seemed a dry place to be. After our trip to Costco we had lots of food, and the faculty storage room filled up with a few goodies so we took advantage of eating at home. Rather than venturing out and...
Riding an Elevator in Korea
Today we made a super fancy breakfast from our Costco lot. Ham and cheese egg breakfast sandwiches on croissants. We didn’t even miss the mayonnaise we were so hungry for something that didn’t have kimchi in it. I’m not knocking Korean food, or culture, I just enjoyed eating something that didn’t burn my mouth off. Widmore practiced his penmanship, Eclair...
Chinatown in Korea
Our family activities have taken a huge nose dive since Gabriel started teaching, and we’ve settled into a bit of a nice routine where Gabriel teaches in the morning and Molasses is just beginning her early afternoon nap by the time he is done. It’s always an impossible choice between going out for a family activity or letting the...
Family Park in Incheon, South Korea - Jungang Park
Today in the Songdo Branch at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 11 people attended the branch. Six of those people were the Diapers On A Plane family. The remaining five consisted of two missionaries and their one investigator, the Branch President and someone who was just meeting a friend after church. Or in other words,...
Swimming Primary Activity in Korea
We’ve been looking forward to today for two weeks. Today is the day of the primary activity where the church rented an above ground Dough Boy swimming pool. We promised we would be on time for the first time ever, and we were! Being in South Korea we’ve missed swimming so far this summer, and so we did not want...
