Moon Festival

We took Lily to the moon festival in the Chinese Gardens this evening.It was a lovely night out and Lily did not seem fussed by all the drumming when the lion dancers came by, they even came up and danced just for Lily and she was happy to sit and watch.

Then we saw the laser light show of how the Lady Chang e became the lady in the moon. It ended with a finale of fireworks which made Lily jump a bit!!

 We all tried spicy quail eggs on a stick…not a fave with any of the Garlando’s. Then we ate hou tou pancakes which were very nice. And we all so ate little mooncakes but Lily preferred here cheezels!!

On Friday Lily and I made paper lanterns with Aunty Katie and Ruby, then we had friends over and had sparklers in the back yard and fortune cookies which were a hit with the kids. All in all it has been a lovely weekend and we have had fun celebrating the moon festival.

    We’re having a Spring Moon Festival in the city tonight! The kids are all revved up, they’ve made a lantern each, and we’re walking in the parade! We’ll probably be the only ones without an asian child… but I don’t care! Hopefully she’ll be here, next year?
