New Friends

One man and his daughter were always there when we got to the beach. So we became friends. He even taught Joseph how to surf. This picture almost looks real. :) I think it lasted about two seconds.
We had them over for tea (thanks to Mom for her lemon sponge pie recipe! I got a little wild and added a cashew-based cream on top. delicious!), but everyone was having so much fun, it turned into supper as well.
Wa-wa loved making cookies. This simple, delicious recipe is from a cookbook I bought from Buy one.
Seven hours of pure, unadultered play. I checked in every now and then to see how things were going, but I just couldn't keep up with all the role playing. I think they are all good guys in this picture. Maybe.


  1. purely lovely! and I love catching a glimpse of your kitchen - it reminds me of every make-believe kitchen I've ever loved ... and the kitchen of my Guatemala host mother - so many happy memories.

  2. truly enjoying keeping track through your blog! hopefully one day we can come down to see you xo

  3. Hi friends of Lorena and Scott Breneman. We just moved to Hsinchu, Taiwan for a year and are blogging with our 7 year old daughter about our experiences. Thanks for sharing yours! It looks like a very different world on the other side of the island.

  4. I forgot to add our blog if you're interested.

  5. Ha! I have to admit, I love my kitchen too. The rustic feel of it makes it all the more endearing.
    Anna, we would love that! You guys were back in Australia recently? Are you back?
    Hello Scott and Lorena's friends! Welcome to this beautiful island! I told Lorena that I'll probably learn a lot about Taiwan on your blog. I hope you enjoy your year!
