Family Night fun
We were inspired by our friends the Caldwell's blog so yesterday we had a family night lesson in the car on the way to The Grand Asia Market. The kids thought it was the most awesome time ever. They liked checking out all of the asian goods, the smiling, waving, golden cats, the large buddha statues, and the shiny red tasseled decorations. They loved going to the sea food area and checking out the large tanks full of swimming striped bass and tilapia and the little turtle that shared a home with them. The turtle's shell was covered with green fuzzy moss that looked like funny green hair. They aptly named him 'Moss'. I wish we had taken a picture of him, he was so cute. Then we toured the meat department and the children were enthralled with the packages of chicken feet for sale. I reminded Parker how he complained about dinner earlier. ;)
They had fun picking out a package of japanese fizzy fruit candy (pretty yummy!) and some gum and they were amazed when we showed them later on the globe where the candy was made and how it was shipped all the way here.
Greg picked out a soda called Grass Jelly Soda. Banana flavored. I knew he shouldn't have picked that (soda with chunks of jelly in it is what I imagined and I was correct) but you only live once and he is a brave soul when it comes to taste buds, lol. He described it as tasting a bit like armpits and would I like to try it? No thank you. I am sure it is probably healthy but I prefer soda with no chunks in it...
Oh it was great fun. The world is very interesting. I love family night. Please as treat for you, make sure to read the description under the brand name on the gummy candy bag. "offer admiring feelings of a graceful lady."
