We spent Friday evening in Pasadena to see the “The Theory of Everything” movie, the story of Stephen Hawking. We started the evening with dinner at CPK and a brief stroll around Pasadena city hall area. We then spent some time at Vroman’s bookstore, book shopping, where Marie and Atom took in a game of checkers. The kids bought the card game Spot It which we played at Vroman’s cafe, while Jackie and I enjoyed a tasty cup of coffee. We ended the night at the Archlight theatre to watch the movie. The theatre had a assigned seating so we managed to get decent seating. The kids enjoyed the movie and more importantly now have a better understanding of the life of a great and still living physicist. In summary, a great and awesome family outing. Btw Go Physics!
Marie, Atom, Richard (Atom’s friend), and myself attended the TeamCrafted event at Club Nokia. This Minecraft event was a Q-and-A event with the masters on Minecraft You-Tubers all of which Atom and Marie knew and recognized. The kids really enjoyed the meeting and seeing these guys offline. Atom and Richard gathered enough courage to get in line to ask a question. Unfortunately the Q-and-A time ran out and they didn’t get the chance to ask. They didn’t turn down the opportunity to wait almost two hours in line to meet and get their autographs and not having eaten any lunch. We arrived at Club Nokia at 11am and arrive in Whittier until 5:30pm.
Once we arrived in Whittier to pick up Jackie we had dinner at Chillie’s on Pico Rivera.
Minecraft meet n greet madness
Lunch at Nepenthe. The ambrosia burger and the chicken sandwiches are da’ bomb. Great food, service, and great views.
We skipped the $38 dollar fee at the Monterey aquarium and headed to the seashore to explore the seashore wildlife.
