Cricket World Cup!!

Saturday was the Cricket World Cup Finals! It was so fun! I've gotten into cricket the last few years, so it was really fun to watch the World Cup! South Asia hosted the Cup, so that made it extra fun!

We live in the coolest new neighborhood! We LOVE it! Our area of the neighborhood does all kinds of cool things. For the game, they set up a projector and screen in the alley street next to our house! Here's some kids watching earlier in the day (the game started at 2:30 pm and lasts about 8+ hours, so not everyone was there at the beginning of the game :))
The girls had fun running around and playing. Here's Aashini in her cricket shirt, sporting her blues :)
This is a horrible picture, but it's the only one I have of them from the day :) haha! We were all wearing blue for the game :) Adam has his cool cricket hat :)
Here's the game on the big screen!
This is the view from the back of the house (next to the girls' room). (this is before everyone was there). It was great that it was so close to our house! We put the girls to sleep around 8:00 pm and we went back out there and brought the baby monitors to hear them if they woke up or needed anything - it worked out perfectly!
This picture is horrible, but the only one I have like this. It was super dark outside (which is why the picture is so bad) but here is everyone watching the game :)
OUR TEAM WON!!!!!! It was super fun and super exciting!!! Here's a video of everyone's reaction when we won! We won at the end with a 6 - it was AWESOME! (if you can't see the video you can click here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IeH715k9rfA )
After some celebration, the fireworks came out!
Everyone was having a blast and playing with fireworks and sparklers :)
More fireworks pictures :) If you look closely, the lady on the top left of the picture is holding a little boy. He's one of Aashini's buddies. He's only 2 weeks younger than Aashini. They play well together and have a lot of fun together :)
Some of the fireworks got a little too close.... (which was why I was at a distance taking pictures :) haha!)
After all of the celebration we all ate together! (here's the man making all the roti :))
It was fun to eat together after a fun night!!
The city was alive and honking all night! It was a great night!!

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…
