Saturday was our annual trip to the LEGOLAND water park where we go all out and get a cabana with all the friends. Joy had to work in the morning so Alice and I got ride from another friend. Alice and I spent most of our time riding around the lazy river at least a few dozen times.
Joy was beginning her new Tuesday thru Saturday schedule so we decided to take advantage of a free three day weekend by taking a trip up to the East Bay. The trip didn’t start off so well again, this time because the day before our trip our van’s passenger window motor broke and did not want to roll up, but thankfully my parents let me borrow their van to take to the airport.
Saturday afternoon we took the kids to the California Science Center to visit the Kelp Forest. Since we were out in LA we figured we should just eat in the city and while browsing Open Table i didn’t see anything interesting and on a whim decided to check out Majordomo if there was ANY reservation and to my surprise there was one at 5:45 for a party of 4. I was shocked since i’ve been trying to get rsvp for months now without even a sniff. So we decided to have a super early Father’s Day dinner. Majordomo is David Chang’s first Los Angeles restaurant that i’ve been eagerly anticipating since his announcement on the House of Carbs podcast back in July 2017. The restaurant is located just north of Chinatown in a very raw industrial area at the moment. I wasn’t sure what to expect after reading a not so great review from Jonathan Gold, but i kept my mind open and enjoyed the offerings that we got.
As we get older each year becomes a smaller fraction of our entire lives so it makes sense that it feels like it goes by faster each year. Add to that a new baby to the family and it felt like lightspeed.
Last winter on some random night when Alice was asleep i put on John Wick on VOD hearing that it was a good movie from the periphery. The first movie was a fun shoot’em up movie with some interesting takes on a assassin for hire world. So it peaked our interest that a second movie was coming this year.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter hit theaters last week and Joy and I took a Friday afternoon off to complete the series. This movies has all sorts of problems between trying to have it make sense in respect to the movies that came before it, having it work as a stand alone movie, and trying to tie up any questions that might have been left out in the previous movies. To find out more of what i think of the movie, and see how i rank all the movies in the series, read on.
