About the Blanco family

Last update: Monday, July 14, 2014

We are Rogerjon, Emma, Ella, and Alexa; a blessed and grateful family.

We currently live in the sunny-er part of Northern California - the East Bay. We love spending time with each other: reading, watching movies, baking cookies or cupcakes, playing in the park, singing and dancing, going to the zoo and other local destinations. We also enjoy frequent day trips around the Bay Area and the less frequent but longer trips to Seattle to visit family.

Rogerjon (aka, RJ, JonJon) is a devoted Systems/Network Administration at Stanford University's School of Law. In his spare time, he likes to build and fly r/c helicopters, dabble with computers and watch martial arts movies or Korean soap operas.

Emma (aka, Coco) is currently a freelance writer who works from home. She is humbly grateful that she is able to take care of Ella and Alexa during their most formative years. Emma would like to foster her freelance skills and talents via Inscribable, her new business venture that offers writing and editing services.

Ella (aka, Lala, Ate) is a sweet and independent 7 year old. She loves going to school (2nd grade at Golden Oak Montessori in Hayward). She is enjoys sports (such as soccer and running), play dates with friends, playing dress up with her little sister and reading. Her favorite foods include tuna sashimi, Japanese ramen, baguettes and croissants.

Alexa (aka, Lex, "the little one") is 5 years old. She is precocious and stubborn, yet undeniably charming and adorable. She talks a lot, loves playing with her Ate Ella, and singing (loudly). She is obsessed with Cinderella and everyday she insists that she's "a big girl, but I'm still mommy's baby."

Our favorites:
  • Restaurant(s): home, Panera, ramen restaurants
  • Day Trip(s): San Francisco, Napa and Sonoma Valleys, Monterey Bay area (and Monterey Bay Aquarium)
  • Local Hangout(s): Oakland, Palo Alto/Stanford, play dates at friends' homes
