Just as Grandma Stogdill gets ready to leave, we finally got some nice weather…sunny with a high around 70 degrees! We decided to go to Fashion Island, a mall in ritzy Newport Beach. Everyone was able to go except for Joanna who had to work.

We had lunch in the food court. Later Jason and Lizzie bought Starbucks drinks. The mall has a koi pond with quite a few large and colorful fish.

That evening, Grandma treated us to dinner at Souplantation. Thanks, Grandma! Yummy!

A favorite activity whenever Grandma visits is playing Skip Bo, a card game.
