Huntington Library

Mishy swirling through the leaves.

Once a month, Huntington Library in Pasadena has free day. You need to get tickets on the first of the month prior starting at 9AM. They usually sell out by 9:03AM. I need to have two computers set up on their web page to get free day tickets and it is so worth the manoeuvering. What I love about Free Day is that it opens at 10:30AM. Otherwise, the Huntington Library opens at noon, which is much too late to venture to Pasadena for Mishy’s naps. We have been going to as many free days as possible. In the summer and fall, Mishy puts on her bathing suit and plays in the children’s garden which as some fun water features. Since it was in the beginning of March, we were all fully dressed. This free day was a special day because her Babba was able to join us.

Pointing to which tree she wants to touch

Looking at the leaves below.

Mishy enjoyed playing this game with her Babba. She takes her hat and his and throws it away. He runs after her and tries to grab the hats from her. She laughs and runs away with them. This time, she decided to return his hat to his head.

Returning the hat.

Here she is with them again. She has just dropped them on the ground and is taunting her Babba to come and get them.

Running through the open grass while playing her hat game.

Being part of the security team.

When we left, there was an abandoned security cart. Mishy decided to see if she would like to be a part of the team.

Waiting for dumplings!

Afterwards, we headed to this fabulous dumpling place in nearby Arcadia called, Din Tai Fung. When Mishy was six months old, Babba and me ate there, wanting to return when she too could have some fish dumplings. Their red bean dumplings are divine. So are their noodles and rice cakes. Everything is absolutely delicious on their menu.
