Dinner Theatre!

We're having a great time! We've been going to a marriage conference these last couple of days with Gary Chapman, and it's been really fun. Last night we went to a Thai dinner theatre :) It was really interesting :) We went with a couple of other couples and had a lot of fun :) It started off with a dinner... we sat on the floor and ate and watched some of the show. The picture below is of the fingernail dance :)
After those dances... we went outside to see some other dances... one of them was a fire dance :) It was pretty cool! We had a great time of eating and relaxing :) Whoo hoo!! We're loving it!

THailand!!

We're here in Thailand!! Whoo hoo!! We're having a BLAST!!! It is definitely a much needed break :) We even got foot massages last night! It was awesome!!

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 perf…

funny things...

There are a lot of fun things that we get to see while riding on a rickshaw through town :)

We only have bicycle rickshaws in our city, and it's amazing how many people they can pile onto one rickshaw :) These kids were having fun hanging on the back :)
This picture makes me laugh :) The wife is driving the scooter, and the guy is riding behind her with his Boxer dog!! Hahahaha I don't know why, but I thought it was just hilarious!!OK, so this guy... We were riding on our rickshaw and another rickshaw passed us... the guys on it were holding their medical records from the hospital... (because here, you are in charge of keeping up with your own medical records)... One of the guys was holding his x-ray... it was just floating in the breeze... it just made us laugh, but if you look at a closely and see all the stuff in this poor guys leg, you can see it's no laughing matter :) Here's a close-up .... ouch!!

Fun Stuff :)

This is a picture of a cute street kid... His shirt cracked me up :)

And of course, there are plenty of spelling things that always crack me up :) Enjoy!

Local Airplane Experience

When we took our trip down south a couple of weeks ago, we got to have the local airline experience. Now, not all of the domestic airlines here are as interesting as the one I am about to talk about, but this one sure was!

We arrived at the airport with plenty of time to spare... Our plane was about 45 minutes late. When it finally arrived and they called the flight, everyone got up soooo fast and started pushing and shoving and forming a HUGE line. Adam & I didn't want to deal with the line, so we waited until it was thinned down and got into it. We got bussed to our airplaine and begain the climb up the stairs to get into our plane. We realized, as we're going up the stairs, that we couldn't find the seat number on our tickets. We ask the flight attendant (or Air Hostess as they are called here) what seats we are in and she says:

"It's free seating, sit wherever you want"

It was then that we realized why everyone was pushing and shoving so much (and why th…

Fun Finds!

Well, we were in the capital city last week and got to see a lot of fun things... we always have an interesting trip to and from the capital and we get to see interesting things. We always see trucks that are just filled with people! Some of them look like they could fall off at any minute! It always makes me laugh! While in the capital city our friends showed us a new restrauant that really pumped me up!!!! One thing that we have really missed while being here is Mexican food!! I've gotten pretty good at cooking refried beans and other things that are good with Mexican food, but there really isn't a place to go out and get it (we don't have Taco Bell or El Chico here :)) Some restrauants will have Mexican food on their menu, but it has a Masala flavor (the popular seasoning here) and just tastes like the local food. BUT - this cool new restrauant opened up... it's called the Taco Maker and it ROCKS! I got to have my favorite - Nachos!!! and every meal deal comes with…
