Swim at Your Own Risk!!!

How many kids can you fit into one kiddie pool??
Hahaha.... the kids that we live with decided to have a pool party today.... they actually decided a few days ago... these parties take much preparation.... you see, our kids downstairs and the neighbor kids had to practice for the party... It's not just about swiming in a kiddie pool... There's dancing and skits and comedy to go along with it :)

The picture on the left is of the kids practicing for the big event... you can't tell, but it's raining - Now THAT is dedication :)

After all that practice, it was time for the show/pool party! We had group dances, solo dances, skits, "comedy acts" and much more entertainment... It was great!!

At one point during the party, all of the kids had dissappeared and the "chief guests" (that's what a couple parents & we were) were left sitting wondering what was going on... Then we hear sounds from the upstairs balcony part... the kids had gotten bored with performing and just started eating!!!

That was pretty funny :) And last, but not least, was the pool party... now in America, you would have to wait a while for all the kids to put on their swimsuits (or swimming costumes as they call it here)... but the kids just jumped in in their clothes!!! It was so funny! They were going crazy in the water and were having a blast! It was definitely a fun party!

Hey! A group from my church in Missoula is going to Bankok T-land this week. Look for a Korean pastor and some otherwise pale Montanans!

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

Campa Cola & Exploring :)

Today we had some things to do in the Central part of our city, so while we were there, we decided to take on some adventures :) Adventure #1 - the underground market. This market is pretty crazy. It's actually underground and has electronics & clothes mostly. They sell things pretty cheap, so it's an interesting place to go. Today we got an 64 Gig flash drive/pen drive for about $5. Crazy hunh? Here's Adam and Aashini in one of the stores. They're all REALLY small stores - about 10x10 feet I would guess (but I'm really bad at guessing that sort of stuff :)) We go here a lot to get things, so I guess it's not a new adventure, but an adventure nonetheless.
Before the next part of our adventure (the real part of our adventure) we stopped for lunch. Aashini will always eat at McDonalds, so that's where we went :) They just started selling chicken nuggets here at McDonalds, so it's super easy to get her to eat there :) This McDonald's had high chair…

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand). Everyon…
