The Goodlins Go to Sihanoukville

A couple weeks ago, we had a few days off for a holiday, so we decided to hump it down to the beach! This was Caleb's first time and Aaron absolutely loves the ocean. Caleb did so well in the car - sleeping for about 2 of the 4hr drive, which was great.

Normally, everyone swarms to Phnom Penh during the Water Festival, but the boat race was cancelled, so I guess everyone decided to go to the beach too. It was quite busy on the road, but our stay was pleasant.

It was so enjoyable watching the kids just having fun and I took lots of pictures too! Enjoy

Our first evening.

Two things: Caleb hates his hat and he's not a fan of the sand...yet.

A year has past since Caleb entered the world. The time has gone by so fast! Can't wait for the next one! Here are a few photos from the beginning and some from his recent party. Enjoy!

Party Time!

Eric playing with Caleb. Caleb loves Tha and Yay!

Keriya came over and helped make Dtuk Krochee-ma (Lime Tea). Yummy!

Noelle testing out the tea with Ginny, Theavy and Serey.

Caleb was a little overwhelmed by the loads of people, but he warmed up pretty quick!

Saturday Afternoon

Transient

I love weekends. It's a chance to really be present with family, wind down from the week and gear up for the following week. It's a chance to go grocery shopping, get haircuts and whatever life maintenance that needs to be done. And of course, on Sunday, we go to church with our Khmer community, which we love so much.

This past Saturday afternoon, I wanted to clean up some mold/moss stuff off our courtyard. I think it develops from the rain and the aircon drain from our room. It was getting a bit slimy, so I decided it needed to go. Afterwards, we all played in the water. It was so much fun!  

Leading up to that, Caleb was in a great mood, so I caught some quick shots of him playing.

What a ham.

Aaron headed outside to help clean the courtyard.

So caleb got crabby when we decided to give him a bath outside. Clearly, Aaron is trying to encourage him :)

We do not approve of babies sucking on hose spouts, but I had to capture the moment first!

Aaron doing his thing!

Love, love this shot.
