Nolan, why do you sleep on the floor?

Every night, you fall asleep on the hardwood in the hallway. You start out on the floor in your room where we read to you. Then you sneak into the hallway and fall asleep there.

Then sometime in the night you sneak into our room and lay on the floor next to me. You bring your blanket and pillow.

Funny little boy. Love you.

To the brotherhood…

51 Life Teaser from Mike Ku on Vimeo.

I love my job. It’s one of the most rewarding jobs ever. I dedicate this project to my friends, co-workers, brothers and sisters.

This is a teaser for a bigger project I hope to finish by the end of the year.  This last year has been tough and you all have provided me with more support than you know.  This is to say thanks.

Aug 21, 2011 Berryessa camping, a set on Flickr.

Went for a three day RV boating camping trip with Joe at Berryessa. The kids loved swimming in the lake. I forgot how much fun this was.

T no longer has fear of the lake. She was jumping in every chance she had. N even came in a few times.

The kids loved camping. I have to say I enjoyed myself too. Thanks Joe.

A day of no merit

At work today. It’s after dinner now and so far every call we have gone on, around 4, has been of no merit. In otherwords, 911 was called and we were not needed. Totally bizarre day.

We got a giant piece of sushi grade ahi and made pot stickers and tuna sashimi. We also made pork and shrimp, and just pork pot stickers. Yum. I’m stuffed.

My beautiful little girl. Tulia, you are growing up so fast. Such a pretty girl. I always knew you were going to be.

I can believe how old you look with your hair cut. You love dressing yourself in clothes of every kind. You are so fashion conscious.

I love you my little girl.

Nolan sleeping

Nolan sleeping, a set on Flickr.

Nolan, why do you hate sleeping in your room? I remember when I was 5, I would sneak into grandma and ye ye’s room and sleep at the foot of their bed. Now you do the same thing.

You won’t even sleep in your room. You fall asleep in the hallway and I have to pick you up and put you in your room. Then sometime after midnight you wake up and sneak in.

I love that you find comfort and security in sleeping in the same room.  Love you little man.

Fogged in

Up early before going to work. Tried to get up to coyote point in Fremont older to catch the sunrise.

The fog was low and I thought I was going to get lucky and catch the sunrise over a sea of fog. But when I got up there I was probably less than 100′ from the clearing above the fog.

Instead I got this with my phone.

I don’t know what it is about this picture.  But it summarizes how I feel.  Mellon collie and sad.

Jimmy Chin, Photographer

Photography and cinematography have quickly become a hobby of mine. I’ve always loved taking pictures. But recently I have really gotten serious about this hobby.

I love the outdoors. I love the feeling that it gives me. I love the fresh air and challenges that the outdoors offer. Whether I’m mountain biking, camping, backpacking, hiking, fly fishing, or just sitting in a hammock strung across two pines, I love the feeling it gives me.

The black night and glowing milky way gives me a sense of smallness. The universe is so vast and big that it is physically incomprehensible how miniscule we are.

Anyway, Jimmy Chin is a pro adventure photographer. This is a video about him in his element. I must say I am envious. Out in the element, photographing.

Aug 16, 2011 Uvas Fishing, a set on Flickr.

I took the kids fishing at Uvas and decided last minute to see if my parents wanted to go. They did and the kids ended up having a great time.

The species we were targeting was the bluegill perch. Main because they are easy to catch, can shake the rod pretty good for a 3 and 6 year old, and provide fast action.

I lost count but I think Tuli caught about 4 and Nolan caught maybe 2 or 3. Tuli was way into them. She loved reeling them in.

Nolan would get a little frustrated by himself when reeling them in so I ended up helping him a little.

Neither of my kids wanted to hook the worm. Nolan was very concerned we were going to kill the worm by hooking them. Tuli just wanted the fish to eat the worms. Both of them touched at least one fish. Nolan wanted to put one of the fish in a bag.

Tonight Tulia and Nolan both asked me, “can we go fishing again?”

Yes!! Success.
