About Us

We're TubaDad (laid-back taco-eating tuba-player from Texas) and M3 (excitable, artsy chocoholic from California). He's a high-tech executive and I'm a stay-at-home mom.

TubaDad and I worked at the same big company back in the day but didn't know each other until we met in Maui at the Kapalua golf course. (This pic was taken minutes after we met.) I was tearing up the island on a girls' trip and he was there enjoying the annual company sales club.
Fast forward a couple of years, we got married on the beach.

Then later adopted our beautiful twin girls, Ree (left) and Ro (right), from Hubei, China.

This blog is about our lives with the energetic twinados, Ro and Ree.

PS: Ro and Ree are identical, but here are some clues to telling who's who in pics:

Bracelet right armBracelet left arm
Dimple lower left cheek.
Narrower faceWider face
.Pointier eyebrows
Smoother, sleeker hair Hair won't lie as flat,
more wisps around hairline
