|I try not to let them climb on the table, but the girls can't get enough of all the action going on in the street right below us|
|This was me taking the girls out for the first time by myself. I felt like wearing a superhero cape.|
|yay! Brad's living his dream of living in Hong Kong and buying dragon fruit.|
We had a layover in Tokyo, which had the most hilarious signs and crazy toilets in the world. not only were they also bidets, but they played music or falling water noises so that you could do your business discretely. After our potty break we were depressed to discover we had to fly 4 more hours to get to Hong Kong. I was spent. Those four hours felt like 10 after all the traveling we'd done.
|umm...i just wanted to pee, i can do that here right?|
|the girls claiming their territory. "this place belongs to us. our toys go...everywhere! don't even try to stop us, this town is ours."|
|maybe it was a little mean to wake them up...but we couldn't let them miss this right?|
|Their safe, modern versions of lanterns were still very neat. Just not quite as cool as the real thing- someday I'll have to visit a more rural area in China that still does 'em the old fashioned (aka magical) way.|
|the big celebration happened to be at the park right next to our place, very convenient for tired folks.|
|we're a happy, tired family|
|this festival is all about the moon- it's always held on a full moon and everyone eats moon cakes.|
|it's also about fire dragons.|
|that thing that looks like a giant fire ball is supposed to be a moon.|
We were tired and our shoulders ached carrying the girls so we grabbed some dessert and I was pretty amused to see fellow customers at the restaurant taking pictures of our girls with their ipads- not very inconspicuous. Our girls are such Asian rock stars.
|fire dragon was worth the wait though- so cool!|
