Water Park Fun!

Last week we went with our friends to a local water park to have fun together and to beat the heat :)  It was a lot of fun :)
This park was really fun.  I knew of a couple in this area, but didn't know about this one.  There were a lot of slides and it was fun! :)
I took Aashini down one of the slides and she was really mad at me because I let her face get in the water :)  
Adam and Vijay going down a slide together :)
Diya and Vijay :)  This picture cracks me up :)
This one too :) haha!
This is the "kiddie" area of the park... it had 3 slides and was really fun :)
We stopped halfway through and had some lunch :)
We had a great view of the "Rain Dance" from our lunch table :)
Eating Lunch :)
They had extra entertainment there :)  There was a mime that was running around the park :)  Diya thought he was hilarious! :)
Something different than America... In America what we call "Swimsuits", they call "Swimming Costumes" here (the British and the Australians do too!)... Also, since most people don't own Swimming Costumes, so you can rent them here!  How cool!  Here is where you get your costume :)
Me and the girls in the pool :)  Diya was a little daredevil... she just walked all around in the water that was up to her chin!  She wasn't afraid at all.  Aashini liked to hang out by the stairs :)
Vijay and Prince :)
The clown that was running around taking pictures with people :)  Diya loved him too :)  He wasn't much taller than her and she LOVED that! :)
After we had done all the swimming we wanted to do, we got dressed and got some snacks :)
Then we went on the "Carnival" rides :)  (you couldn't wear your swimsuit and go on these)...
Here we are riding on a big fish that went on a track going around the park :)
With my "dizziness issues" I chose to avoid this ride... you can see by their faces that it was good choice :) haha! :)  
It was a super fun day hanging out with friends :)

That's so awesome! Thanks for the info you passed along to me. Gray says he thinks he knows where one is...between us and some other friends. Might try it out!!!

This looks so fun and you look so happy and cute! :) I'm curious if you put some kind of water proof covering over your camera?

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…
