Dragon Boat Festival





Hubby and I took the girls to the dragon boat festival today. It was a beautiful day- 78 and sunny! We went last year with Anna but of course she didn't understand what was going on. This year it was completely different with Sarah and Anna. They truly enjoyed it! Sarah grabbed every brochure she could get her hands on! Then exclaimed "Wow, we got some good stuff!" At one point I was concerned she was buying us a new insurance policy! 

We had them write all of the girls english names in the Chinese characters! Sarah, Emma, Ellie and Anna! Just think, next year they will all be here at the dragon boat festival! Yippee Jesus!

We watched the dragon boats practice, tomorrow is the dragon boat race! We visited all the booths (got a little info on Chinese camp for when the girls are older). Ate chinese food and watched the Chinese dancers.

It was so enjoyable!! Sometimes I just can't believe these precious girls are our daughters! Thank you Jesus!

How awesome that you have something like that nearby. We have a Pacific Rim festival each May and every year for the last few years we have had a conflicting schedule not allowing us to attend.

Looks like fun for all. And next year four girls in tow!!!! Can't wait!!!
