Halloween 2008

On Halloween, Summer had a fun-filled day.

First, we went to music class and I was very happy that Summer agreed to wear the fairy wings. I thought she looked adorable and Summer thought she looked cute, too. She kept telling me, "I be butterfly princess!"

Then in the early evening, Summer's preschool had a Halloween parade. She usually does not go on Fridays, but I brought her for the party. Summer would not walk on her own for the parade, I think she was overwhelmed by all the people.

Then we went trick-or-treating around our neighborhood with Summer's good friend and neighbor, Lora, and Lora's friend Ethan. This was Summer's very first time trick-or-treating. Although Summer was scared of some of the decorations, she had so much fun receiving candy. After the kids collected tons of candy, Borami, Lora's mom invited us over to play for a few hours. We all had a great time!

Summer's first time pumpkin carving.

My friend Jennie invited us over to her house to carve pumpkins. Summer and the other kids carved pumpkins for about 5-10 mins and then ran away to play. The mom's did all the carving. The last three pictures are of pumpkins I carved in 2003. That was the last time I had so much free time to carve pumpkins. :)

Summer's second trip to Disneyland on her birthday.

On May 21, 2008, we took Summer to Disneyland and California Adventure (again) to celebrate her 2nd birthday. This time we made it in time to see the Little Einsteins in the Playhouse Disney Show. Summer LOVED it and had so much fun!

Summer's first trip to Disneyland

In May, Eddie and I bought annual passes to Disneyland and we took Summer for the first time (she was free). We meet our good friends and neighbors Borami and her daughter Lora there.

First we went to California Adventure to try to catch the last showing of Playhouse Disney, but we were too late. We did stay there to see the parade then head over to the Disneyland side to see the other parade there, go on the Finding Nemo submarine ride, the jungle boat ride, and then to the Tiki room. Summer had lots of fun and was amazed by all the wonderful things to see.

Ross' 2nd Birthday Extravaganza

Summer met Ross in music class earlier this year and soon they became great friends. Summer attended Ross' 2nd birthday party on May 4th and she had the most fun ever! My friend Michele, Ross' mommy, went all out for her son's 2nd birthday. There was an abundance of activities, she had a petting zoo with adorable baby animals, pony rides, then lunch on kid-sized tables, a music guy, a face painting clown, and a Pooh bear impersonator. Wow!

Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch

Summer (2 1/2yrs) visits Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch with her friends Lora, Julia, Max. and Ava. It was over 90 degrees that day, so Summer could not wear the fleece kitty costume I bought for her. Summer received this princess dress from Auntie Doris for her 2nd birthday.

King's Hockey Game

Jennie and Sam, Max and Novella's parents, invite a bunch of us to an after party in a box at the Staple Center to see the King's play. It was the first time we had ever seen a hockey game and it was so cool to be in the box. We all had a great time.

Summer goes to Valoria's 3rd Birthday Party

Summer attended her friend Valoria's 3rd birthday party at the CenterPointe Club patio and fountain area. There were arts and crafts and Dora was there. At first Summer was afraid of Dora, but soon Summer was ok and had a lot of fun.

Summer sings Happy Birthday to Valoria's cake. The shrill voice in the background is Dora's. :)
