For the few remnant stayed behind for the Winter break, we had a quick outings ourselves. We started off with a good dim sum(点心). Some students tasted dim sum for the first time, 虾饺，烧卖，凤爪，新洲炒面… It was yummy! This inspired the girls for shopping at 99 Ranch for making some Chinese meals 🙂
Then we went to the California State Capitol for a tour, listened to live music. Baby Joshua approved of the Golden Bear, “Rarrrr!!!” with authority!
Isn’t this a nice acoustic place to listen to live music? There are even seats down there by the band to enjoy the performances.
We got to see the two houses/chambers where our government officials gather to debate and pass the laws of the state:
Finally we visited the tall Christmas tree with the ornament decorations outside, and enjoyed some Autumn foliage.
