More Thanksgiving Week events

I'm finally recovered from Thanksgiving week with Ah Mah and Ah Gong. Here are some of the other things we did besides eating and getting sleepy:

On Sunday, I was eating breakfast with mommy, when daddy walked in the door with Ah Mah and Ah Gong! I hadn't seen them in so long, I was so happy. Plus they brought presents. This one is from Great-Uncle Noi, Great-Aunty Tim, and Aunty May who got it in Japan.

Presents from Japan
A Very Hungry Caterpillar bowl and tray for Very Hungry Owen!

That day they napped in the morning then we went out to see some big balloons. They were really big. It was for some kind of "May Cee's" parade, whatever that is.

This is what I thought of the whole affair

Monday was lazy because daddy had to work. In the evening Baby Ronak came over and we modeled our matching vests together.

On Tuesday we went on a "Duck Tour." It was cold, and there weren't any ducks, so I was disappointed. I fell asleep. Later, mommy told me while I was sleeping, the driver drove into the river and let some little kids drive the boat! You wake me up next time, mommy! I would've wanted to drive it!

On Wednesday we went to the aquarium. Again. And I missed the jellies. Again. So sad. Another thing I slept through. But I did get to see lots of other fishies and Myrtle the Turtle in the big tank.

Then it was Thanksgiving, and in the morning we went to the Buddhist temple. Some of the monks had gone out for a special event, but there were still 3 guys left. This one gave me another bracelet to wear.

Then it was home for dinner...

Bubble Thanksgiving!

You expect me to eat all that?
What is that thing, and why aren't you feeding it to me?

Things I'm not fond of: being prodded with big turkey wing
On second thought, maybe I'll pass

Okay, you know what happened after this. Next time, I'll write about what we did after Thanksgiving.
