The Fendley’s did it again.  They threw the best party of the year. It was scary. It was fun. But most of all it was awesome.

Rinnie looks like she is fitting in nicely in the laid back San Diego lifestyle, what do you think?

Tu’s Happy Birthday Bash

Posted on Sep 17, 2012 in Family

We had a great time today for Tu’s birthday.  Since her sister was in town, we did a little sight seeing in one of our favorite places – Coronado.  We took this awesome photo of Tu and Rinnie on one of the best places to take photographs of San Diego – the Ferry landing near the Coronado Bay Bridge. I’ll have to remember this place when we have people in from out of town because the location is great as a backdrop for people coming in.

 Later today we headed over to Barona Casino to get dinner.  Mom, Danny, Camille, Rinnie, Tu and I all went for the buffet which is unlimited Crab, which would be awesome if the crab didn’t taste like salty sea water – which it did.  Anyway, we had a great time and decided to create part 2 of a video we did about 1.5 years ago the last time we went to Barona Casino. In that video, Danny recreated the lifestyle of Henry the 8th and was throwing chicken bones and crab legs everywhere like a glutton.  It was fun but this time we added a few more stores to the video.

Tomorrow is Tu’s Birthday.  Her sister flew all the way out from Vietnam to be with her on her birthday.  Her sister has a beautiful voice and put this song together for her sister Tu for her birthday.

We answer the question.

Can you fry an egg on the sidewalk in La Jolla today?  We answer the question in the following video experiment.

Rin in the Salty D

Posted on Sep 15, 2012 in Family

At long last, Tu’s sister Rinnie arrived in San Diego and we are so happy she arrived. Everyday for the last two years, Tu say’s everyday how she wishes her family was here and yesterday it happened and her sister came in. Tu has really not stopped smiling since she came in and we have been busy showing her the sights and the beautiful place called San Diego.  We have been going through a heat wave here in San Diego, and since Rinnie and Tu are from Vietnam it certainly feels like home here.

Rinnie hopped on a bike in the morning.  She doesn’t have a license to drive a bike and so she ended up going off the road and almost went directly into the Pacific Ocean as you can see from the pictures.

Well nevertheless she picked up riding the bike just fine and managed not to break any bones.  Good job Rinnie.

Where do you go after you rode a bike on the beach and you are ready for something new in San Diego?  Well you head back over to another beach.  That’s just the San Diego way.  So we headed over to La Jolla Cove beach to check out the seals.  We didn’t see any seals, but we were up for another surprise while we were there.


So the big surprise for us, was that Rinnie decided to go swimming with all of her clothes on.  She had her scarf and everything on and just jumped right in the water.  We were yelling, “Rinnie, don’t go in the water with all of your clothes”.

 Well, since she was already wet, she decided to lay out on the beach to get a tan.  She spelled her name out in the sand so people would know it was her place.  But then another wave came, and go her all soaked again.  That’s the thing about waves – they just keep coming.

Well it was a fun day.  We saw lots of nice things and most importantly, Tu and Rinnie got a chance to spend time together in the place that Tu calls home. Nice day and more to come so stay tuned.

Hello Ms Halsey Valentine

Posted on Sep 10, 2012 in Family

Well we finally met Halsey Valentine this weekend.  She jet-setted out from New York this week and she was just as cute as you could expect with someone with a name like Halsey Valentine.  She’s just a tiny thing, born only 3 months ago but she is full of freshness and personality. She smiles a lot too and is very sweet.

Now Halsey enjoys the good life so she insisted on an Ocean Front Suite at the most exclusive resort club in La Jolla – The La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club.  The resort was beautiful and you could literally walk right out of the room on the sugary white La Jolla sands.  We all went down to the beach and had a wonderful afternoon playing in the shark-infested waters – well yes there are sharks but they are harmless nursing sharks that migrate to La Jolla each late summer to breed.  They are quite tame and harmless.  We took lots of pictures of Halsey and the family.  You can see some of them on the link below.
