Last year, Aaron had his first sleepover birthday party, with four friends. It was...a handful. But we kept an open mind at the moment about whether we would do it again. Fast forward to this year. Aaron wanted one, but we weren't sure. We compromised by keeping it to two friends.
It was still touch and go, but much more manageable. In the midst of all the guns and noise, it was nice to see Aaron happy and in his element. And we all survived, as did the house. So...next year?

End of year rush for the Huangs. Aaron had a swim meet, Jada had a choir concert, and Lee had a business trip to Vegas and finished the class he teaches. Asher is still #KingBaby. Amy tolerates us all. We had a good trip to California.

A typical morning: Asher waking us up early, breakfast, Y, naps. Actually, not much of a nap: Asher fell asleep on the way home from the Y and didn't go back to sleep once we got back to the hotel. Of course, he fell asleep in the car on our way to my brother-in-law's parents' house, where we caught up some more with him and my sister. Eventually, Asher woke up, and it was fun to see all the cousins playing together. From there, we drove further north to see an old high school friend of mine who lives in Orinda. What a nice treat it was to meet her husband, kids, and parents, and we were greatly refreshed by everyone's warmth and hospitality. It was a longer car ride home but we made it back for game shows and dinner.
