Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese new year a week late!
Come join our feast.
We had hum bao, shrimp, fried rice, potstickers, and a couple other chicken and beef dishes.
Yummy, Joey tried almost everything.

Jimmy tried eating with chopstick. It didn't work so well...

Joey cleaned his plate, kinda! and was ready for more! He especially liked the shrimp!

That weekend we packed up and went to a neighborhood Festival. It seemed like it was going to be big time fun with Lion Dancers, crafts, food and other fun things for all of us to do.
Jimmy perched to watch the parade.

Joey had a pretty good spot too!

Unfortunately the festival started off with these guys lighting off about 50 bazillion firecrackers. You can see the string lined up on the street here, about 15 feet long or so, as far as I could see.

Needless to say the boys don't like really noisy things, go figure since they usually ARE the really noisy things.

So we ducked into the nearest Mexican restaurant and had lunch.

Not noisy firecrackers in here, just noisy boys!

We discovered that Joey really will eat everything, from chips to refried beans,

to his brother's quesadilla! Yum yum yum.
