Gung Hao Fat Choi! (Happy New Year)
We took the kids to their first Chinese New Year parade in Chicago's Chinatown yesterday. A friend of Trace's from school and his family met us there and the kids had a blast together. The boys were convinced it was going to be horribly boring but as soon as the first dragon appeared Caden was hooked! It was pretty cold (in the low 20's) and there were about 5000 more people there than I'd expected, but a good time was had by all. Afterward we bucked tradition and went out for Mexican! There was no one in the entire restaurant besides us and one other family. We decided we'll do Chinese on Cinco de Mayo!
