I met up with Wing and Sarah for lunch at TK Noodle House. I was supposed
to meet Wing for lunch yesterday, but lunch plans weren't quite clear
(...okay, fine, I flaked)...but I still think the plans weren't crystal
clear. Regardless, we met up today....and it turned out to be a blessing
in disguise since Wing got to eat with not ONE, but TWO pretty girls
today (Sarah and Ashlyn...what did you think I meant?) hehehehe
Sarah and I walked the entire length of the mall a few times over, stopped off for cherry lemonade, corn dogs, and cinnamon pretzels. We parted right before dinner since I had dinner plans with my family. "Franks, Sarah, for spending the whole day wif me...I had funs!" (spoken in Sarah's baby-like voice) =D
Our family had dinner at the same restaurant we go to for every family dinner for the last 20+ years - China Station. It's this old converted barn off of Monterey Hwy in San Jose. It's a modest little place with delicious "home-style" cooking. Wil, Tony, Adie (my other brother-in-law), my niece Marisa, my cousin Stella, her family and in-laws joined us. It was a special treat to be able to see everyone before Ashlyn and I head back home.
Well, Ashlyn turned 4 months old today! So what have I noticed about her this month? Aside from smiling a lot, she's laughing a lot too. It's really cute. She has total head control now, enjoys standing up (assisted, of course), and is starting to grab at things. She has also learned to be vocally demanding. She likes watching colorful things and responds to music, singing, and chatter. I can't believe how much she's grown and developed this past month....and I think her daddy will trip out when he sees her!
spent the rest of the night doing laundry, packing, and cleaning up
the room that we stayed in. Sis, Heather, and Eva kept me company
while I went about gathering all my stuff. I've accumulated so much
on my visit this time and have NO idea how I'm going to carry it all
back tomorrow! *zoiks!*
