One thing that my sister, Sarah, tries to do every year is to spend some one-on-one time with each of our kids. Today, she (Di Dao) and Jeremy had their "date." We told the kids about a month ago to start thinking of what they'd like to do with Di Dao. Jeremy has been looking forward to this day for a long, long time. He knew a month ago that he wanted to go to Build-A-Bear Workshop. Whereas Grace has never really cared about stuffed animals, Jeremy LOVES them. In fact, his bed is usually full of them and more are piled around his room. The only location in Edmonton happens to be at West Edmonton Mall. Di Dao and Jeremy went to Build-A-Bear while Jason, Grace, and I roamed around the mall. Here are some pictures that Di Dao took of their time together.
The kids also got to spend some time with my parents, Ong and Ba, today. I grew up going to thrift stores and today, my parents took the kids with them today to check out two stores. They were able to get Grace some Littlest Pet Shops and Jeremy got a Hot Wheels set. All of Grace and Jeremy's toys for less than $15!
