Eating Bugs in South Korea
Gabriel has been promising to eat the Korean delicacy silk pupae snack, also known as beondegi, since we first arrived in South Korea. Today, was that day! In fact, not only did Gabriel eat bugs in South Korea, but each one of our kids were up for the challenge as well. We are going to share with you why you would...

Seoul, Korea Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Temple
Today we traveled from Songdo to Seoul to walk the grounds of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Temple. The Korea LDS temple is located in a busy neighborhood in Seoul, South Korea. We always try to visit the local LDS temple when we go on our travels. It offers us permanence no matter where in...
King's Chapel, King's Chapel and Burying Ground, Boston, Massachusetts, Grave Site, Grave markers, cemetery, Revolution, Sons of Liberty, diapersonaplane, diapers on a plane, creating family memories, family travel, traveling with kids
Going to church in the King's Chapel is like flying first class in a private suite on a fancy airplane. This is the way to do church. Rather than sitting in long rowed pews, you have a designated pew; and not just a pew but a square cushioned cubicle. We can just imagine how much more pleasant church would...

The Volcano House in the city center of Reykjavik doesn’t sell batteries, but they are open on Christmas Day. They are the only place we could find open on Christmas Day in Iceland, when my insulin pump ran out of batteries and we were desperate. That is just the how of why we came to the Volcano House, (you...
What is it Really Like Living in the World's Smartest City?
Since the day we’ve arrived here in South Korea, we’ve been fascinated by the culture of this incredible country. This is the most culturally distinct place we’ve ever lived or traveled to. We’ve been asking ourselves since day 1, how does a typical South Korean family live? That’s not the easiest question to answer, however, because one thing we’ve discovered...
Toy Story 4 at the Movies in South Korea
Today we went to the movies to see Toy Story 4, which sounds simple, doesn't it? As an Expat in Korea, everything is complicated. If you think going to the movies in South Korea is simple, you are so wrong. Not just wrong, but so wrong. It doesn’t help that we don’t speak the language and that we are notorious for...

My birthday falls two days before Christmas. It is on December 23, the eve of Christmas Eve.

Growing up, Christmas was always a very enchanting time in our household....
Our Perfect Family Day on Jeju Island
We were already sore from so much walking yesterday, but we managed to kick it up a notch today and ended with spending a perfect family day on Jeju Island. Thankfully, we all got a little more sleep. I swapped beds with Gabriel and took the twin bed with the baby. Sounds like a tight fit, but I pushed...
