California Vacation - Day 5 - Saturday- Shopping

Woo hoo! It's Saturday and a 3-day weekend for me! We had breakfast at Champagne's cafe at South Coast Plaza's Crystal Court and then do a little shopping. Manami especially liked the Illuminations store with all the beautiful candles!

When we were done, we went to the Mitsuwa Japanese market. We had so much fun looking at all the stuff and asking Manami questions. She got some supplies and staples to make her adjustment to American life a little easier.

After Mitsuwa, we went back to Fashion Island to look around and Manami wanted to buy a couple of things, and then it was off to see the movie Ratatouille. We loved the movie, but the last minute of the film was cut off because of a fire alarm! At least they gave us free re-entry passes and Manami got to see some of our handsome American Firefighters!

We also needed to pick up some things at Target so we stopped by there on the way home. Johnny picked up some clothes and a hat because he has such trouble finding his sizes in Japan.

It's always great to squeeze shopping in with any vacation. Just wanted to say thanks for stopping by to visit me.
