Road Trip #1

I think I'm going to number our road trips because we're going to be taking a lot of them in the next 5 months... Saturday we came to Orlando to visit some of Adam's family :) We had to take a break in the middle of the trip for Aashini to run around a little... but since she's not really running yet, we let her climb around inside the van :)
One of the fun people we're here to visit in Orlando is Adam's brother Sean. He just started middle school and is 11 years old. He's been having fun with Aashini and loves being a Cha-cha (Hindi for paternal uncle). Here he is riding on his Rip-Stick... It's crazy! It has two small inline skate type-wheels - it's sooo hard to balance on but he's awesome at it :)
So here are some fun brother pictures :)
And a fun goofy one....

Adam looks so much like Aashini in that last pic!! Maybe it's cause she makes that face a lot. :)
That first picture is SO CUTE!! I bet lots of road trips get tiring huh? But at least there are fun places to eat along the way, and no scary Tata trucks to contend with. :)

wow those pics were priceless!
Enjoy every minute of your time in the States. It's great Adam gets to hang out with his brother. Living overseas, I don't really miss stuff from America that much but I sure do miss the people and Archie getting to have the experience of being near his grandparents.

What a fun trip! We were just in O-Town too- at Disney! Sean looks so different to me now! He's really grown up!Looks like Aashini is going to be one great driver by the time these 5 months come to a close! Woo Hoo!

Andrea, I had no idea you guys were stateside (maybe cause I don't check your blog enough:( But it's so exciting to have you here even though I probably won't even get to see you! I'm glad you guys had a safe trip... and the service in the States definitely could use some manners!
I loved all your pics!! Welcome Home Shefs:)

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!

Funny Things - Funny Sign :)

The other day Adam saw this clinic.   At first glance it seems pretty normal..... But if you read the sign you'll see that it's a  "MUTATION DIET CLINIC"!!!! hahaha!  Mutation Diet??  What?? Really?  hahaha!  :)  Awesome :)

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…
