Saturday morning we got up fairly early and went to my favorite bagel place where we spent way too much on breakfast.
Then we headed over to my sister-in-law’s house to meet up before heading to my first Dodger game (second MLB game). On the way to Dodger stadium we passed through Echo Park in which Stephen questioned my knowledge of whether or not that place is part of the ghetto. I even had to bring in reinforcements in the form of my rap music listening sister and he still didn’t believe me. I was a bit annoyed.
Anyway, we got into the stadium just in time for the start of the game. Though knowing now that we were in for the long haul, I’m not sure why we were so concerned with being on time. We should have taken a cue from some of our other friends that showed up much later.
So we get all settled in our seats and then Stephen heads off to get food while I took care of Bean. Stephen came back with my first ever Dodger Dog sans mustard. It was so disappointing. I don’t know how you can have a hot dog without mustard or how he thought that would be OK, but anyway, I was pretty much told that I just needed to get over it and suck it up and eat. Stephen’s lap was full of our food and I had the baby so I really didn’t have much of a choice. Ugh!
We were in the shade the whole time and somehow I still managed to get a sunburn. I still don’t know how it happened. To be honest having so many people I knew around and trying to take care of Bean, it was hard to pay attention. I missed pretty much all the action on the field, but would occasionally glance at the score and stand when everyone else stood to cheer.
The game went into extra innings, 12 to be exact, and by that time I was really ready for the whole thing to be over with. Finally, Andre Ethier hit a home run and we all got to get up and leave.
Next up we headed over to China Town to do some cute pictures with our girls. I am so excited about these and can’t wait till we get copies.
The consensus was that there really isn’t authentic or good Chinese food in China town so we drove 20 minutes to this Chinese Islamic restaurant in Rosemead. It was fairly good, my favorite dish was a beef dish. My stomach just was starting to act up and so I was having a hard time eating food in general.
Then to top it off we went to this awesome place called Frootsii that has Boba, frozen yogurt and cupcakes. I had a cupcake, but my stomach was still feel bleh and all that sugar didn’t really help. I’ll definitely be going back when I am feeling much better.
