Mid-Autumn Festival

Its a four day weekend here... Mid-Autumn Festival is today and tomorrow it Chinese National Day... Mid-Autumn is a lunar holiday and National Day is always Oct. 1st, so they aren't always at the same time. We are enjoying the break from school and the time to spend as a family. Last night we went a lantern festival in a nearby park with our friends. So fun!
 We bought plane and car lanterns for the boys... they had a blast taking them around.

Max kept saying, " I want it, I want it..." about the big colorful animal lanterns :o)

And no Mid-Autumn would be complete without a moon cake. This was actually a good one, green tea flavored. You can read last years post about moon cakes here.

The decorations are always so nice from this time of year... lanterns everywhere...

Beach Morning...

Yesterday we spent the morning at the beach with our friends. Such a fun morning before school. It was blazing hot though... so we didn't last forever :o) Jack and Josiah had a BLAST!
 Max was not into the pokey shell beach :o)
 He did have some fun moments though....

 Nothing like floating in the water on a hot day :o) The water was about 6 inches deep :o)

 ahhh love her!
 Max did not have his best morning...
 except for a few cuts on our feet from the shells, it was the perfect morning. A little neosporin and we were all fine :o)
