Chinese Festival

We attended a Chinese Festival downtown yesterday. What a blast! We met up with two of our travel fa
milies, and it was so good to catch up and spend time with them. Philip loved being with his little buddies and loved walking in the lantern parade following the very colorful dragon.

Throughout the day, we met several other families who had also adopted with our agency. The common bond we all have is amazing. This miracle of adoption goes on and on!

Not so sure about the Dragon Boat!

Are they the next act?

What a fun day spent surrounded by the sounds of Chinese music and festive dancing, eating Chinese food, and seeing special friends.

It looks like a wonderful time. We are sad we missed it, as I think it is so important to celebrate our children's culture. Philip does look a bit iffy on the dragon boat, did he end up enjoying it?
