Guess That Mall

When the weather is all wintery (or too summery), I will occasionally take Hannah to a mall to play in their indoor play areas. Can you match the picture to the mall?

1) Northridge Mall
2) Fashion Square Mall
3) Valencia Town Center
4) Glendale Galleria


A


B


C


D

The Answers: 1-C, 2-A, 3-D, 4-B. It's hard to tell which one is Hannah's favorite, but Daddy likes Northridge because it's the only one of these that has Great Khan's Mongolian Barbeque...yum!!!! It's also the biggest. Check this out:



Glendale does have Kyochon Chicken though....

Heavy Rotation

These are the CD's that are being played the most this winter. Hannah actually requests most of them by name! Just not their official names...


Kiki -- Soundtrack to Kiki's Delivery Service
Ziggy -- Ziggy Marley: Family Time
Aybee -- They Might Be Giants: Here Come the ABC's
Brown, Piano -- Charlie Brown Christmas
Zosan -- Japanese Children's Songs
Elmo -- Sesame Street Songs
Lemon -- Peter Paul and Mary: 10 Years Together
Donna -- Madonna: Immaculate Collection
Hey Jude, Beatle -- The Beatles: Dad's Mix
Yo-Yo Ma -- Yo-Yo Ma!

Hopefully soon she'll request Vampire Weekend: Contra and give dad an excuse to download it from iTunes.

Hangin' With Our Peeps

Last week we went to the Oshogatsu (New Year's) Festival in Little Tokyo with Juliette ande her family.


There was lots of cool arts and crafts, Taiko drumming and even had a Zaru Soba station! I can see this being a part of Hannah's meal rotation.

Hannah enjoyed her first trip to Little Tokyo. I can see us coming back pretty regularly.

Aquarium of the Pacific

Over the holidays we met up with Cousin Jude and his entourage at the Aquarium of the Pacific!
We decided to go because Hannah LOVES fish -- or so we thought. We soon discovered that Hannah actually loves fish in every other environment EXCEPT the aquarium. Yep, she is more impressed by the koi pond at the mall or the fish tank at our neighborhood Dim Sum restaurant than the largest aquarium in Southern California!

I think going during the most crowded week of the year had something to do with it...
We still had a fun time meeting up with family though!
At least the mall and Dim Sum restaurant are free...

Snow Days @ Kidspace

Hannah experienced snow for the first time over the holidays during Snow Days at Kidspace!

Margot joined us for the festivites as well.

Ok, so the snow was as brown as Mountain High Snow in late March...but its snow, right!
Like the true SoCal native she is, she preferred the Water Table!

Indoor play was fun too. I definitely see ourselves coming back more often in the summer!
See you all there!
