So, Saturday morning around 8am, K, Kyle, Alani & I did the long drive down to Los Angeles. Two potty stops, lunch at Iron Skillet just before the Grapevine and we made it down to Lorie's in Monterey Park by 4pm. This also includes a quick snack at Shaka's (shaved ice!) while we waited for Lorie to get home from work. Picked up bbq dinner from some food trucks - don't know where - Sy (aka CfH) and K went.
Sunday, we drove out to Crafted at the Port in San Pedro. Got to see ame_chan and daughter, Emily! Squee! I haven't seen them in two years????? It was great to see them and see the new shops - Honey & Ollie and The Night Market! I got the cherry blossom necklace that I'd been admiring from Rainy; kidlets picked up t-shirts and posters from the booth next door and K picked more hot sauces.
Then we drove up to Gardena to visit Auntie Hey. The magic table was covered with food (Giuliano's torpedo sandwiches too! YUM!) as usual. Got to visit with Auntie, cousins: Robert, Heidi & Gordon, and Wayne & Marcia. Nice chat. Auntie's doing okay, still sharp, having problems with her hip. She & K exchanged hip issues. K thinks she's going to get her hip replaced next year
Dinner at Marie Callendar's.
