We just returned from a journey to California, the place where people go to begin anew. We get that urge a few times every winter in Edmonton. This year we had a good reason to visit the golden state – family. This is your Uncle Jun:

He’s your mum’s cousin and is currently a researcher at California Tech (Caltech). He invited us to stay with his beautiful family in Pasadena. Here you are with mum, Uncle Jun, Aunt Hisae, and their lovely children, Kaede (Maple) and Kazu:

We had a great time and visited Disneyland, the Getty Center, Caltech, and Old Pasadena. In this photo, Kaede is wearing the same dress as Princess Elsa in the film we watched together, Frozen.

Before we arrived in LA, we spent a few days in San Francisco. Here we are near Union Square on our first night (you were a little tired).

But by the next day you perked up…

We also visited the de Young Museum and Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park:

We then rented a car for the trek down the coast to LA and stopped in Monterey to visit the aquarium…

But the best part was playing with Kaede and Kazu ;0)
