i have been wanting to do this post for awhile, but time is just not on my side lately. i've been busy with this, and taking care of these and getting ready for a celebration for him and at the end of the day i just don't have time to do this - blog. but here i am and here it goes. a few weeks ago we went on an adventure to chinatown with our homeschool group. this was the first time i have ever been. i have lived in southern california my entire life and have never been to chinatown and the reason for this is because i don't like going to LA. i know crazy, right? but it's just too busy and crowded and i drive a vanagon and i don't want to break down in LA with two kiddo's. thankfully the mister went on this adventure with us and we all had a super fun time. i really enjoyed our time together as a family, as a group, and for a little bit, by myself. i fell in love with all of the colors. i have always loved red, i have been falling in love with turquoise, and yellow has just been one of my all time loves. so i snapped a lot of photos while we were there and here are a few of them...

the classic sign at the entrance to the plaza

red lanterns were everywhere.
i am not sure if they are always there
or just because it was so close to
the chinese new year

i told you i love red,
so when my kiddo's stand
next to red i take lots of pics

i love the contrast between the red + turquoise

decorations for the new year

these two are pretty cute

more red + turquoise

my beloved yellow

and this mister was just such
a fashionista with his
turquoise pants + black velvet sports coat
oh and his hat - love it!

lots of colors on all of the sidewalk shops

my favorite sign in front of the phoenix bakery

i'm not sure why, but i just like this photo
maybe because everything is just so random and cut off

this was hanging from the ceiling in the bakery

red + turquoise + yellow = love

a new years offering

our chinatown goodies

so, friends if you have never done the chinatown adventure, i highly recommend it. it was such a fun day and maybe something i might just do again.
