America - DeLand

We just got back from spending some time in DeLand with Adam's mom. Here are a few pictures from our time.

We went to the beach one day. They girls had fun with the sand! Aashini called it the desert :) haha!!
Daytona has hard packed sand and you can drive on parts of the beach. You can also pull wagons :)
Adam got to play basketball one day :)
We watched a soccer (football) game one morning. Aashini had fun with the soccer balls :)
... Diya was more into the athletes :) haha! We'd better watch out for this one!!!
Here's Aashini going for a walk one day :) (as you can see, Diya is busy doing some phone business on the walk) ;) haha!
One night we went and watched Adam's mom dance at a restaurant.
One of the days we went to Tampa and visited Adam's grandparents.
Aashini got to visit the dentist office that Adam's mom works in.
Dr. Pittman even looked inside Aashini's mouth :)
She had fun :)
If you want to see more, I havemore posted on Facebook :)

Very cute, summery, family post!
Love it! Especially Aashini passed out in the wagon in that first pic:) And I can see how Aashini would think Daytona was a desert...that beach is wide and huge!

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…
