We all slept in this morning. I don't know what time Auntie Justina and Uncle Dean got up, but they were both gone by the time we got up. They're so cute...they went off to explore Irvine. "Explore" isn't quite the word to describe what you can do in Irvine, but they came back around noon...and giddy to have found not one, but TWO Ranch 99's in Irvine. HAHAHAHA!
Justina and Uncle Dean treated us to lunch at New Shanghai Restaurant
in Irvine. We had dumplings, soy bean milk (sweet and salted), Chinese
fried donuts, stinky tofu, spicy beef stew, sticky rice, etc... Lunch
was yummy! I fed a piece of stinky tofu to Ashlyn and poor girl gagged
on it and started crying. I guess it was just that foul! Whoops!
In the parking lot, we said goodbye to Auntie Justina and Uncle Dean before they left for San Diego. Aric, Oli, Paul, Ivy, Ashlyn, and I headed home. Ivy, Oli, and Paul packed up and hung out for a while before making the long trek home. I was bummed to see Ivy go...but I was consoled by the fact that she'll be back in 5 days. YAY! =)
and I were going to hit up Costco, but Ashlyn went down for a nap...and
by the time she got up, we were too lazy to go out. We spent the rest
of the day lounging around the house. I dropped in a couple of loads
of laundry, clipped coupons, vacuumed the stairs and living room,
and dusted. Aric and I fixed a simple dinner and ate in front of the
tube. This might sound strange, but life doesn't get any better than
this. Some things bring me comfort...this is one of them: chores done...relaxing
evenings with the family...watching a movie.
What a great weekend! Hope your weekend was just as pleasant! G'Nite!
