America - Orlando!

I'm slow in posting, but here are some pics from our visit in Orlando to visit Adam's dad and brother (Notice that everyone in the pic below has blue eyes!! :))
Aashini found some rings one day and put them on all of her fingers :)
The girls had fun rocking out with all the awesome musical equipment that Adam's dad and bro have! Diya was serious about drumming! She loved it!!!
Aashini loved the drums & keyboard, but her favorite by far was the microphone!! She would sing and talk into it as long as we would let her - haha!
... a little fun in the crazy daisy sprinkler :)
We got Sean to push the stroller in the mall :)
We sang some karaoke one night - Adam really got into it :) haha!!
One night we went to Chuck E Cheese's. For the first time in her life Aashini was NOT afraid of the character in the costume - she ran up to Chuck and gave him a big hug and a high-five!
Aashini's favorite game was the Stinky Feet game... at the end of the game it let off a stinky smell - haha! She wanted to play it over and over!
You can see the progression below... Diya was excited to see Chuck... She ran up to him with her arms out... when she got to him she had 2nd thoughts and came running back pretty scared. She went back up to see him when Adam was holding her though :)
Look at this HUGE pizza!!!
One night we went to this fun dancing musical fountain. Aashini had sooo much fun!
Aashini made a little friend (in the pic below) - she had a lot of fun with him. When the fountain started up she thought it was awesome!
One day we went over to Lego Land in Downtown Disney.... the dragon and stuff in the pic below is ALL made of Legos!
Blurry family photo someone took for us :)
I was wearing my Mr. Potato Head shirt... so I had to get a picture with him :)
Aashini & Diya wanted to get their pic with Cinderella :)
Over the weekend we went camping. Adam's dad just recently got a pop-up camper - it was great!
Aashini got a new Rapunzel Doll from her friend Eden and I braided her doll's hair... so then Aashini needed her hair braided too :)
Diya loved the swings at the campground :)
The girls had fun playing in the dirt, playing at the spring, playing at the playground and all over the camp site :)
The girls had fun camping!!
Diya was super dirty most of the weekend ;) haha! This picture cracks me up :)
We had a great time in Orlando :)

so many fun pics! I love A's braids and her curls--she looks so different with her hair down. I just see that so many others said that too. I do hope you had a fun, fun time in the US!

I've never seen a picture of Adam's dad before. Weird thing to comment on your blog huh? :) I love all the pics! Aashini looks so tall and skinny playing in the sprinkler!

The pic of Diya all dirty made me laugh too. That's exactly what my kids look like every time we go camping!

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…
