Sea Urchin isn’t on the menu due to the big winds lately….
We went for The Queen Mary,
Black Miso Cod
Warm, Cooked food for Aiden!
He was feeling on the shy side.
He would watch them but once they said hi, he would turn around and smile.
So much good food!
But of course pictures come first.
Aiden always does this silly smile these days.
Such a silly little dude.
Galen’s favorite item was the lobster.
Mussels aren’t as good as Bouchon’s.
We also got squash rolls for Aiden.
Clams and scallops are delicious as usual.
The Pacific oyster were pretty good – my favorite oysters this time around.
Now Aiden always wants to put spread on the roll.
But he didn’t especially like this roll.
Clams are so good, gotta have more than 4.
He didn’t care for the soup either.
Or the miso cod.
We can skip all the stuff meant for him next time then.
Manhattan Beach Fire and Police Station Open House.
Unexpected events are nice.
Aiden wasn’t excited as I thought he’d be.
But he did entertain us.
He doesn’t know anything about firemen or policemen yet, so it’s probably not very meaningful.
In 2 years he will probably enjoy it more.
And we didn’t want him to go crazy touching all the controls.
So I am sure it took some fun away from him.
We all had a very productive day.
But there wasn’t much action in this part of the open house.
Nobody was there to tell or show you anything.
Not that Aiden would be willing to sit down and listen.
But he likes getting free stuff.
He would not put on the fireman hat.
Every time we put it on him he would take it off.
Of course, It was also too big for him.
He wasn’t very interested on going on these vehicles.
Instead he preferred to whack things that were in his way. :X
This was our fireman tour guide.
He showed us how he put on his suit.
How to put on his oxygen mask.
And allowed people to touch his suit.
And showed us going down the pole, something I’ve always wanted to do.
But that wasn’t something we were allowed to do.
That’s basically our little Mother’s Day outing.
Aiden wasn’t willing to sit on the fire truck.
But he sure enjoyed standing there and putting on a small show for the camera.
Which he isn’t always willing to do these days.
Sometimes when he sees that camera he will tell us no 映相(taking pictures)
Now 2 thumbs up is easy for Aiden to do.
He’s so proud!
He’s hands are becoming more agile.
But I think Aiden enjoyed being outside and free way more.
He enjoyed running around and sitting on the planters.
If I had a book on me I’d definitely have swapped a book.
