Weekend without kids

Mama and Daddy went away to San Francisco for a few days while Owen and I stayed home in Hawaii with Ah Mah and Ah Gong. Apparently, our parents ate their way through the city. Here are some pictures of their trip.

First stop was the Ferry Building for the Saturday Farmers Market.

It wouldn't have been a complete trip to SF without a visit to Chinatown.

They also had very nice meals at Great IndiaYank Sing, Cotogna, and the House.

And Uncle Eric took them to Gelateria Naia for this hazelnut and egg nog gelato.

Last day was a beautiful, sunny and clear day.

In-N-Out was a required visit.

Owen and I did well while our parents were away. We video-chatted everyday... but I'm glad my mommy and daddy are back.
