Weekend Getaway!!

 During the Diwali holidays, the kiddos had off almost a week of school.  So, us and some of our friends went on a getaway!  We went just a little outside of the city to another state and stayed at a fun resort.   Look at the view from our room!  Fun hunh?
 Aashini and Diya got to play a lot with their buddies Sanjana and Sandeep :)
 The kiddos had a great time on the outside play area :)
 The boys spent most of their time playing sports! haha!  They played Badminton (pictured below), Tennis, Water Polo and Cricket at any chance they got! :)  They played ALL day long! haha!
 The hotel also had an indoor play area.  They kids had a lot of fun at that one too :)
 It had a crazy slide that was super steep and fast!  They usually ended up sliding across the floor  a few feet after they slid off :) haha!
 We all tried the slide too :) haha!
 There were fountains and water everywhere!  The kids loved it!
 haha!  This picture cracked me up! :)
In the mornings and evenings it was pretty chilly... but in the afternoons it was pretty warm!  We took advantage of the warmth and played at the awesome pool!
The pool had an awesome waterslide!!!! :)   It was super fast!  It was supposed to be for people 8 yrs old and younger... but a few of us got on it a few times while they weren't looking :) haha! 
 Every night, we all went to the boys' room and played games!  We stayed up late playing tons of games!!  It was fun :)
 Adam and the kiddos racing on Diwali morning :) 
 Diya and Deepa at the fun playground :)
 We took lots of funny pictures :)  
 One of the mornings all of the girls went to the spa :)  I got a great foot massage!  Here is Deepa getting a Foot Spa :)
 They also had a Billards room :)  We even played pool!
 This picture makes me laugh! :)
 Deepa always had tons of fun snacks!! :)  Here are the girls enjoying their lollypops :)
 Group picture of the guys :)
 An attempt at a jumping picture with the girls :) haha! :)
It was a fun getaway :)

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…

Adam's Finger Surgery :)

OK, so on the 4th of July, when we had that big fun party in Thailand and got to swim and play all day... Adam got to do his favorite thing - play Basketball... During his first game of basketball, Adam 'jammed' his finger pretty badly... of course, he then went on to play 5 more games (he'd been waiting for the 4th of July basketball games since the last 4th of July and he wasn't going to let his finger get in the way :)
So, it's been 3 weeks and his finger just didn't look right, it still hurt, and it just didn't bend or work right anymore... so we went to the doc... This is what Adam's finger looked like: So the doctor said that Adam has "mallet finger"... and sometimes know as "baseball finger"... so Adam likes to call it that - it sounds cooler :) Here's what it looks like (below).... his bone is broken and the ligament isn't attached to the top of his finger anymore... so... in order to fix it they have to put a pin in…

Funny Things - Random :)

Here's a few random funny things ;) One thing that drives a lot of people crazy is honking! There are things that drive me crazy (like people urinating on the sidewalks - yuck!) but thankfully honking is not one of them because we hear it pretty much 24/7. We saw this poster the other day (below) and thought it was funny... BUT not as funny as the Hindi poster. The Hindi poster pretty much said that 'Honking is bad for your health' - haha! Horns are actually a pretty necessary part of driving here. You don't really look behind you when you drive (most people either don't use their side mirrors, don't have side mirrors, or just have them folded in). When you drive, you just drive forward and you honk at the person in front of you to let them know that you're there - simple right? Sure, it's a little noisy, but you never have to look behind you :) If you go to that company's website it says: "Have patience at the traffic signals, let the signal turn…
