I can’t believe Summer is almost coming to an end, well, almost! We still have less than 2 weeks left before school starts. Of course, we’ll continue to make the most out of it. So far, we had a blast, a little drama, a few tears, an E.R. visit, lots of laughter, lots of food, and lots of fun. A picture is worth a thousand words. So, I’ll show you some pictures and less talking in this post. Please excuse the quality of the pictures as most of them were taken with my Android phone.
The Kids took a swimming class this summer. It’s offered by the local YMCA. Let’s just say, there are still a lot to learn and practice!
We visit the library and the parks quite often, both the regular parks, and theme parks. This is my Baby Girl with Duffy at Disney's California Advanture. Aren’t they both adorable? So cuddly! But I feel bad for that guy in that furry outfit when it’s 90+ degree F outside!
We went to the Orange County Fair, it was fun but the tickets for the rides were quite expensive. We started off visiting the barn and farm animals. Picture below is my Little Boy with the Moo Moo Cow.
This picture below was taken from the top of the Ferris Wheel Ride at the Fair.
I used to love crazy rides like this one (see picture below), key words here are “used to”. Guess I’m getting old and can’t bear too much excitement from these crazy rides anymore. Do you love crazy rides like this? I feel dizzy just by looking at it now.
Of course, you’ve got to enjoy some 'Fair-Food' when you are there! What’s your favorite 'Fair-food' to have? Funnel cake is definitely on top of my list.
If you follow me on Instagram here, you might remember this picture below with the “Sea of Turkey Legs”! What a magnificent sight!
We also went to the Orange City Night Out Event organized by the City’s Polices Department. It was pretty fun. We enjoyed some free food, some games for the Kids, talent show, and I even won a free dinner at a local restaurant from the drawing!
The highlight of the event would be the K-9 performance. They are super smart!
Unfortunately, we also visited the E.R. Fortunately, we didn’t have to stay long before we were discharged. It was more of a precaution than anything else. Don’t worry, we are all fine now. It was just a minor accident at the playground. But I have to say, this is a top notch hospital, from equipment to customer service! The Kids were even offered Lego, coloring pages, stickers, and so on while we waited. I felt like I was in a 5-star hotel more so than in an E.R.!
Still remember my cherry tomato plants? There are so many tomatoes now. But somehow, they were taking so long to ripen this year. Did that happen to you too? Or is it just me, again? They stay green and orange for the longest time, I swear!
The good thing is, they are worth the wait!
These Cherry Tomatoes are super juicy and super sweet. We've been harvesting 5 to 10 tomatoes a day. Most of them went to my Baby’s Girl’s tummy as these are her favorites. I’ll share a recipe using these tomatoes if I get enough of them in a day.
Last but not least, we've been out so often that we dine out more often too. This little dumpling house is my Kids’ favorite. We dine there so often. But then, I realized I haven’t do a review for this restaurant yet. So, stay tuned for the review. I promise, I’ll show you lots of good food.
I hope you’re enjoying your summer so far. Any activities or event that you want to share? I would love to hear what you did this summer too.
