BIRTHDAY to Emily!
Ashlyn and I had lunch with Em and Wing today...in celebration of Em's birthday. We ate at Wolfgang Puck's at South Coast Plaza. The weather was warm and kind of humid, so we ate on the patio. We had fried calamari, salads, and pizza. It was delicious. Afterward, we walked around the mall and window-shopped.
Ashlyn and I got back by 4pm. My parents, godfather, and niece are driving up. They're going on the same cruiseship (Carnival's Elation) I went on with my girlfriends last summer. The only difference is that they paid half of what we paid! *jaw dropping* It's off-peak season right now, and there are advantages to having a flexible schedule. hehehe
My father-in-law and Netty, who stopped by to pick up some software around the time my parents got in, joined us for a big dinner. We ate at China Garden in Irvine. The food was really good. Aric and I go to China garden occasionally, but we never know what to order. It doesn't help that neither of us can read the menu. =/
dinner, I took my parents and Amanda to The Spectrum. They have never
been there and were pretty much in awe of the place. It helped that
it was a lively and bustling Saturday night. =)
