That night we went to my aunts house and she went all out!! She had the road blocked off, huge speakers set up for music, table and chairs in the street, big, pretty lanterns in the trees, lots and lots of good food, etc. etc. I got to see all of my family I haven't since for about 10 years and it was really nice to catch up with all of them. I also got to meet my little cousins who are dolls! One of my aunts brought a wishing lantern. I'd never heard of it before, but it's just a paper lantern that everyone writes their wishes on and when you light it and send it into the air, your wish comes true. Well, my cousin wrote "to be a fairy" and then today she called me and told me "My wish is coming true! I'm growing wings!!" So cute!
Anyway, I don't have any pictures to post yet, but I will when I get back from Portland!
Do you have any cute little kid stories?
