In Chiang Mai!

We've made it here to Chiang Mai! Aashini had her first Tuk Tuk ride! Tuk Tuks are the Thailand version of a Rickshaw :) - but they're leaned back and super comfortable!!
Here she is in the Tuk Tuk again :) In the background you can see the red trucks - those are called Song-taows (i have no idea how to spell that) - she also had her first ride in one of those yesterday too :)
And another one just because it was funny :)
We also went to Tesco - it's like Wal-Mart... She had fun looking around at everything :)
Aashini got to hang out with her buddy Becka (Tony & Stephany's little girl) - they had fun and will be hanging out a lot this week ;)
Last night we got awesome foot massages ;) - it's great to get foot massages here because the ladies that aren't working will hold your baby - they are so great with kids, so it was great :)
I'll leave you with this one... enough said :)

We'll keep ya posted!!


I love Thailand! I can't wait to take Archie again, but I must confess I don't love the song-taows. They scare me! Everything else looks great! Rebekah and Aashini are cute together!

Aashini is SOOOOOOOOO cute!!!! I just want to fly over there so I can kiss those chubby little cheeks!!! She is such a ham with the camera!!

That last picture is so funny!! Caroline is right, she is such a ham. I love how happy she seems in the grocery cart.

Wishing we were there!!

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!

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).

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…
