After my Dad immigrated to the United States, and Lincoln, Nebraska, he helped bring the rest of his family over and to the Midwest. My grandparents, Thomas and Sally, had a small house near the East Campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
My grandpa, was the one who kept English in the family and I remember that he was always obsessed with magic tricks. He always had some sort of fun, new trick to show me and all the other Chen grandchildren; disappearing ink, a cup that made an egg disappear. We would all sit around him when he was showing us tricks and revel in his laugh.
My grandma, or Popo, as we called her; was always cooking and playing the hostess to whatever was going on in her small home.
I think this photo must have been taken around some sort of special occassion or holiday. Maybe Easter? It's hard to know, since I was always dressing up and being a ham; which is hard to believe now, since you'll hardly ever see me in a dress.
