A Fun Festival

Here are lots of photos from the Chinese New Year Festival we went to yesterday. We had a good time and we saw lots of friends.

Ready to go to the festival.
Watching the dancing is my favorite part. Aren't these girls cute? This dance symbolized tea picking. This year, there were carnival games for the kids. I think it was pretty fun. Here is Jadyn, picking out a duck to see what prize she won. The Chinese zodiac animal walk. She won when they picked her animal. She picked out a little bear.
The fishing game
Ring toss game. Some rings went in, and some...didn't. As long as she gets to pick a prize, that's what matters. :)

Trying out the juggling sticks.

Making a necklace.

The dragon in the parade.

Here is what Jadyn thought about the dragon. Holding Dad's hand was not safe enough. She felt the need to go under the stairs. I guess the dragon looks really big and creepy if you are 4.

Love the last picture...but poor Jadyn for being scared! My Abby is the same way.

Glad to see you had fun though....before the dragon!!!

Evan would have been sitting right next to Jadyn!

Looks like you had a great time though...

I meant he would be under the steps hiding with jayden...well, you know....:-)

The Tongginator felt VERY nervous of the lion dancers, but TERRIFIED of the Chinese opera singer. LOL. And what's the Chinese Animal Zodiac walk? -- My best bud is in charge of the crafts and activities every year for our local CNY party. That sounds like a neat idea. I'd like to learn more.

Awww....poor girl. Not sure Kaylin would have enjoyed the noise either... She looks like she had a GREAT time otherwise. :)
