Our Story

My husband took a 1 year assignment in Korea (South of course). With a one year old along for the ride, this year will definitely be an adventure. In an attempt to try to document all the craziness, I decided to start this blog to record all the memories we are making.

Our Son, the Korean Celebrity

We went to a Doosan Bears baseball game recently.  It was an amazing experience.  They have a section with table seating where the row in front of you is replaced with a bar type table, kind of like Alamo Draft House.  It was perfect for Remmer because we had space and he could sit in his booster seat for at least part of the game.  When we tried to buy the tickets, the lady looked at me like I was crazy.  I kept on saying, "3 tickets," and she kept on shaking her head and saying, "Child ticket."  She couldn't believe I wanted to spend 40,000 won on a ticket for Remmer.  Believe me, it was sooooo worth it!  I can't imagine sitting in the general admissions section with a little one.  The crowds are crazy.  The area is packed, and they cheer in unison for almost the entire game.  Here's video:

As you can see, Remmer enjoyed, and participated in, the cheering.  At some point during the game, a camera crew came into our sectioned and filmed Dan with Remmer.  We thought it was for the big screen but never saw him on there so figured they hadn't used it.  We found out later it was for tv.  One of Dan's coworkers said he saw them while watching the game.  I think his video clip has been used more than once because more recently one of the ladies that works at our local grocery store was very excited to tell me that she had seen him on tv, and someone in our neighborhood stopped to tell me the same thing and pointed him out to her children.  Maybe we should be getting him an agent... ;-)
