Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Happy New Year!
We took the kids into Chinatown yesterday to soak in some local culture at the Chinese New Year festival.  It was a very enlightening experience.  We enjoyed a hectic, although delicious lunch followed by a stroll through a bustling Chinatown.  

We conquered a few hills. 


We did a little window shopping.


We listened to some drum music from an Asian street band.

We ate a little cotton candy.


We spent some time in a caterpillar jumpy house.  Upon completion of  jumping, the participants were excreted through the rear of the caterpillar.  It was very disturbing.


We even got a glimpse America's biggest export to China.  Yep, Ronald McDonald.


And on the way home we got to see this guy.  He never ceases to take my breath away.
