We went on an extra-long bike ride to Southshore Center today.
Peanut did a great job following the road, pedaling up the Bay Farm Island bridge, and controlling his speed on the way down.
We also got him a haircut. It was so cold outside while we were waiting that he had to wear Dada’s hoodie.
We are so happy to have outdoor dining back! We went to Trabocco and enjoyed all our favorites for lunch today.
The nice thing about having Kung Fu at the park is how nice it is to lay out on a blanket in the sun when you’re waiting your turn.
We drove back to Alameda today.
To stretch our legs, we stopped in Santa Nella and took some funny photos.
Today, Mama took the kids to Disney’s California Adventure Park to take a walk. It’s not officially open but they had Buena Vista open for shopping.
We had to keep our masks on and they were very strict about not eating or drinking in the area. None of the food places were open and if they sold snacks, they had to be sealed and taken outside of the park to be eaten.
It was pretty empty and kinda eerie to be there.
Leela and Alice joined us later and Uncle Johnny bought everyone these cool plushies that can sit on your shoulder.
Too bad even the trolley wasn’t open or running. At least we got a cute photo of the kids.
Alice and Janie put together a scavenger hunt for the little ones today. They drew pictures of different animals on cards and taped them to plastic knives that they hid around the neighborhood. Each kid took turns looking for an animal until they were all found.
We took a drive to Chinatown today in search of Bruce Lee, almond cookies, a broom, and tasty Thai food.
The freeways were so empty that it took only 20 mins to get there from Cerritos and Chinatown was equally empty.
We found Bruce Lee pretty quickly and got some photos taken.
We also went to Phoenix Bakery and got some yummy almond cookies and other treats.
For lunch, we went to LAX-C and had some Thai street food. SOOOOO TASTY.
Peanut also go to eat the strawberry cake he wanted from the bakery.
At LAX-C, we went on the hunt for a specific broom that Yai asked for. We found it toward the entrance and made sure it was the same one that Yai has at home. Perfect!
We checked everything off the list today and had so much fun too!
After Kung Fu on Saturdays, we like to grab lunch at the food trucks in the Southshore Center parking lot. We usually take it home or eat the park nearby but today we ate in the back of our minivan. So fun!
Peanut went to school to drop off his writing book and pick up more materials for the next 3 weeks of school.
