BC: the story continues
FC: Chance Kenneth Akinori Beppu the 3rd year
1: Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories. | Chance has really grown up this year. He is such a little boy now and he is growing into a real charmer. He is a very loving and headstrong child. He has been a great big brother to Kyler and a pesky little brother to Jadyn. He loves animals, playing at the park and junk food. His favorite things are his blanky and pillow, and of course, his candy collection.
2: Chance loves all animals. We went to the Puyallup fair and he enjoyed the petting zoo and riding the ponies.
3: Chance and Jadyn have become great playmates although Mommy and Daddy often have to break up fights. He really looks up to his big sister and she takes good care of him.
4: Happy Halloween 2010 I loved getting all that candy. This is my favorite holiday!
5: Trick or Treat
6: I am a big brother now Welcome Kyler! I am so excited to have my own baby. I was not able to meet him in the hospital because I had a cold. I was so excited when he finally came home. He was so little and I just wanted to hold him all the time. Every time I held him, I would tell my Mommy "Picture me" so that she would take a picture of me and my baby brother.

13: Hawaii Trip 2011
14: When we were in Hawaii, I got to pet the dolphins at Sea Life Park. They were so cute and soft. They felt like a wet hot dog. Actually the one on the left is a wholphin, half whale and half dolphin.
15: This trip to Hawaii was extra special because Baachan, Jiichan, Uncle Kirk, Auntie Chanda, Cole and Drew came with us too. We also celebrated Jadyn's birthday while we were there. We stayed at Ko'olina for most of the trip and it was so sunny and beautiful.
16: We spent a lot of time at the beach while we were in Hawaii. I love to catch fish and crabs and play in the sand. We saw lots of cool ocean animals on this vacation.

20: All things grow better with love. | We took a quick family vacation to the River Rock Casino in Vancouver where we celebrated Baachan's birthday and Mother's Day. We also had fun swimming and eating Chinese food.
21: I love spending time with my daddy. He likes to play rough with me and takes me to the zoo. The thing I like best about my Dad is that he is always there for me.
22: Lake Chelan Memorial Day 2011 | I always have so much fun just hanging out with my family. We did so many things at Lake Chelan like fishing, roasting marshmallows, playing games and swimming.
23: Just Hanging Out in Chelan

26: It was our first cruise to Alaska and we had a lot of fun swimming and playing with our cousins. It was really cold even though it was summertime.

30: I went to Remlinger Farms with my cousins for my 3rd Birthday. I had so much fun. I love to ride all the rides esp. the ponies and pet the animals. I also loved eating cake!
31: HAPPY BIRTHDAY
33: Dear Chance - This year you have really become your own person. I can see a glimpse of the man that you will one day become. You are such a special person. You are loving, affectionate, intelligent and sweet. Some days you can make my heart melt and other days you can make me pull out all my hair in frustration. When you set your mind to something, there is little I can do to change it. You often get frustrated when things don't go your way or when your sister doesn't do things you want to do. But you laugh often and forgive easy. It's such an honor to be your mother and to be able to watch you learn and grow. Whenever I am away traveling for work, I cannot wait to come home and see your little face again. I definitely feel a strong bond between us and hope that our relationship will continue to be strengthened throughout the years. As you started school this year, I felt a little sad that you were growing up and leaving me even though it was only 2 days. You started to make your own friends and do your own activities. However, I cannot be more proud of you. I love you baby boy, with all of my heart and I hope you never go a day without knowing and feeling our love for you. May God always bless you and protect you. Always, Mommy Chance's favorite things: riding on his plasma car, the color blue, any thing with sugar (candy, cookies, ice cream, cake, etc.), Hawaii, bugs, animals, Mickey Mouse clubhouse, Cars, his blanky and pillow and his family.
