Friday! I got up early to ensure that everything we needed was packed
By noon, Grace (along with Lauren and Taylor) came over to give me and
Ashlyn a ride to the airport. The flight was short and smooth. Ashlyn
fell asleep 10 minutes prior to landing...and was pretty much out for
a good hour.
was wondering what the weather was going to be like in the Bay Area.
Today was pretty HOT (close to 100°)!
picked us up, and together we picked up my mom at her volunteer
When Ashlyn woke up, she was really happy to see her grandparents. It's
been a while since my last visit and my mom was a bit worried that baby
wouldn't remember them. But when Ashlyn greeted them with tight hugs
and sloppy kisses, they were instantly swept off their feet. hehehe
Ashlyn got ice cream from her grandfather, and we headed home by late
my parents, Wil, Tony, Ashlyn, and I attended Ivy's dad's birthday party
- a fun BBQ at their home. We enjoyed an evening of eating, drinking,
hanging out, more eating, karaoke-ing, and dancing.
For me, the highlight of the evening was when we (including my parents)
snuck away from the party and took a nice long stroll along the golf
course in the community. It was such a warm and clear night....and there
were like, 12 of us and Tasha (Paul's dog). =)
got back in time for cake-cutting. *whew!* At the party, I saw two of
my old Chinese School teachers. They still call me by my full chinese
It was a pleasure seeing them after all these years...until I realized
that they must have hated me back then. I don't blame them: I talked
a lot in class...and in english (which was strictly forbidden), never
turned in my homework on time, did poorly on tests, and took extended
recesses. =P No wonder my Mandarin sucks! hehehe
partied till late. Ashlyn had long fell asleep. I had a great time with
my parents and friends!
you have a good weekend!
