|Aaron's 10th Birthday!|
|Grandma Sharla and Grandpa John brought all kinds of wonderful presents|
|Aaron building his birthday robot|
|Playing a birthday game from Grandpa Jeff and Grandma Mary|
|One of our kids from our English sessions gave us some|
of the traditional Dragon Boat Festival food called zòng zi (粽子).
|This version was made with sticky purple rice and red beans,|
and was tastier that some other versions we've had in the past.
|The biggest adventure we had was taking a riverboat ride at the 3 Gorges|
|The scenery is really beautiful|
|This was the bathrooms by the parking lot.|
If you were to guess how to interpret the sign kid with basketball,
what would that mean to you?
|Western children's potty is the correct answer|
|The grandparents brought everyone new clothes.|
Abigail appreciated that gift the most.
|We went to a new restaurant that opened recently in town|
|The cheese pizza was pretty good|
|We also got the meat party platter, which we thought would have|
chicken nuggets, but they were mushroom nuggets
|It took a while to convince them that we really did want plain,|
salty not sweet, cheese pizza, but when it came it was pretty good.
|The meat lovers stuffed crust wasn't as good.|
The crust was stuffed with pumpkin.
|Definitely edible and OK, just not something we'd order again.|
|All eight of us in our car|
|After pizza we went to the forest park nearby|
|Grandpa John giving rides|
|Grandma Sharla doing the magic carpet ride game|
|It also got combined with the knock Grandma down game|
|The grandparents brought supplies so the kids could each create their own games.|
|And lots of other games were played|

|One of the favorite new things to do was play football against|
|They took them to a playplace|
