While Mama went back to work, the kids got some worksheets done in the morning while Dada and Uncle Johnny did some work.
In the afternoon, they met up with Auntie Jia for a little Camp Snoopy at Knott’s. Since we were going to live so close to the park, we got a season pass for the whole family and it’s already getting some use!
Before dropping Mama off at the airport, we went to Mitsuwa for dinner and then stopped an ice cream shop.
We’ve got some things to fix in the Buena Park house so we went to Home Depot to pick up a few things.
We arrived late last night and the kids stayed at Yai and Ta’s house while the movers unloaded.
When it was all done, we all went out to dinner at Sizzler. That’s how we do it in SoCal!
It’s our last evening in Alameda together so we had dinner at one of our favorite places, Trabocco. We’ve celebrated so many occasions here and the chef has always been so gracious to us.
They always replay the 2012 Olympics at Aquatech and this is the first time KK was really into watching the races.
We had sushi tonight and Peanut ordered his favorite roll appropriately named “Crazy Monkey”.
The last time we went to Disneyland was in December 2018! Uncle Johnny got us tickets and reservations now that Disneyland reopened after a long COVID closure. With current safety precautions, we are required to wear a mask at all times and the park is at 25% capacity.
We got matching shirts to mark the occasion and we were all excited to get going.
The first place we visited was Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. This morning we were disappointed to hear that Rise of the Resistance was closed for the day but we still got to enjoy the area for the first time.
Peanut tried to fly the Millenium Falcon but he couldn’t reach the controls. So naturally, our mission was a failure.
The kids tried the blue milk and thought it was kind weird.
Peanut was excited to find an X-wing and Yai got him his very own! Lucky kid.
Thunder Mountain was a big hit with all the kids. Even Leela went on for the first time and loved it. We ended up riding it at least 4 times today.
The kids also went on Space Mountain twice.
This is the look on KK’s face when she learned she was not tall enough to drive a car alone on Autopia. Maybe next time.
Some of us went on Splash Mountain and Peanut and Alice were prepared with ponchos.
Uncle Johnny was not as lucky. He sat in the front and got drenched.
We stayed until dark and unfortunately they didn’t start having any parades or fireworks yet.
It was still a very memorable and fun day with the family.
We got to Yai’s house really late last night and Peanut was up early for some reason. Well, it certainly caught up to him at 7:30am when he was found asleep on the couch like this.
Later that morning, he also fell asleep while waiting for his haircut.
It’s one of our favorite times of the year! May is a great time to go cherry picking and that’s what we did this morning.
We picked and took home 16 pounds of cherries today and Peanut probably ate a pound on his own while we were picking.
The kids drew a picture of their morning and Peanut included all the cherry pits that he spit onto the dirt while we picked.
