Oakland Chinatown

Today my family came to visit, and it was fun. We went to Oakland for dim sum at a place called Peony, without knowing that the Chinatown street fair was going on simultaneously. So streets were blocked off and there were tons of things happening all at once, all over, but the atmosphere was nice and festive and Peony had really yummy food. Erik and I are eating the leftovers for dinner. 🙂 Perhaps best of all, or at least most pleasantly surprising, the fair had a super-slide, my favorite fair attraction when I was younger (probably because I was too scared to ride anything else), so Shra and I took Al on it and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. It’s been at least ten years since I got to even see one of those. 🙂
