Tonight we have a big dinner celebrating my dad’s company’s 30th anniversary, employee appreciation, and Chinese New Year. The kids needed to be well rested to stay up for the evening so we had a quiet morning just hanging around Berkeley. We visited the North Face Outlet to see if there were any good deals. Simon was more interested in playing “hide and seek”.
Iris was a good sport and didn’t fuss while we shopped. They have limited selection for >6 months and < 5 years old. The cashier said it is variable when they have toddler sized clothing so to keep on checking back.
We also stopped by 4th Street in Berkeley where Home At Last Rescue holds there mobile adoption. We had lunch then went to say thank you for facilitating the adoption of Mochi and Misu. Their new owner has been sending me periodic updates and they seem to be adjusting well and getting to know their new owner. I’m still a little sad that they are no longer with us but they seem to be happy and at least they are warm inside rather than the garage.
After resting at home, we all headed out the the new Peony Seafood Restaurant in Oakland Chinatown for the celebration dinner. Iris and Simon got dressed up in their Chinese outfits.
We had a green screen photo setup this year (rather than the photo booth of last year) where we had a great time taking photos together with family. Here are the ones I was able to download but I think there are more. One of these will be my new Facebook cover photo, which should it be?
Iris got a lot of love and lots of people pinching her cheeks.
By 9pm, she was exhausted and fell asleep while I was holding her. Simon spent most of the dinner watching movies and playing games on the iPad but also eating dinner. He was eating things he usually doesn’t like (ie, fried shrimp balls), I think because he was too concentrated on watching his movie.
Congratulations Oakland Pharmacy Inc on 30 years of great service! Thank you to all the everyone who do great work each and every day!
