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 :)

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).

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 :)
