Christmas in SoCal: Day 3 and 4

On Wed, Mama thought it would be fun to take us to Kidspace, a children's museum in Pasadena. Daddy had taken us there before in May. Like last time, Owen and I had a lot of fun there.

Playing in the Early Childhood Learning Center.

Aki's not too sure if Owen's a safe enough driver
Our favorite activity was riding the tricycle on the trike path. We got to ride on a 2-seater, but I was scared Owen was going to crash us into something.

Later that day, we met up with Mama's high school friends, Aunty Jen and Aunty Reena. Aunty Reena's little girl, Abby, is just 2 weeks older than me! We had fun playing at Aunty Jen's house before getting dinner at Din Tai Fung.

Abby and Aki want cakes!
After dinner, we walked down to a bakery that mama said she wouldn't frequent again because of the bad customer service. Even so, Abby and I wanted cakes!

Disney on Ice
The next day was Christmas Eve. Ah Mah surprised us with tickets to Disney on Ice show! Owen was reluctant to go at first, but as soon as we got there, he was sitting on the edge of his seat.

After the show, we had to go pick Daddy up from the airport. Good thing he didn't miss his flight this time.

Our seafood Christmas dinner
For dinner, Ah Mah made us a special seafood dinner with steamed lobster, steamed crabs, crab fried rice, and a yummy salad with ginger dressing.

Later that night, we took a stroll around Ah Mah and Ah Gong's neighborhood to see the holiday lights.

Owen's favorite - Choo Choo trains

Before we went to bed that night, Owen asked Daddy to leave a treat for Santa - lobster and eggnog. I bet Santa loved it! Merry Christmas!

I'm still bummed I missed you guys. If I had left out lobster and eggnog maybe Santa wouldn't have brought me the flu. :(
