SF Bay Area: August 2018
Started Mason's birthday off with xiao long bao at Din Ding Dumpling. Solid food except for the tripe, which was completely drowned in sauce. Went nom nom nom on xiao long bao, spicy won ton, scallop fried rice, and more.
Then off to Jumpity Bumpity for the official start of Mason's 4th birthday. It's a large indoor playground for kids, including some semi-private party rooms for things like birthdays, and a rather small seating area for adults in the back corner. A few arcade games in the back too, both for adults and children. Both sets of grandparents showed up, plenty of friends, and of course, a garbage truck birthday cake! Did I mention Jumpity Bumpity is intense?
Stayed so late at Jumpity Bumpity that we had to rush off to a double birthday dinner afterwards at Mayflower. Tons of delicious food as always-- fried rice, Beijing duck, fish, and of course, lobster. Nomnomnomnomnom. Plus Mason's favorite, scallops! Always a great time, and seems to enjoy sharing his birthday with Grandma Lai!
