Carter is Eight

Over the weekend, we had a small gathering to mark Carter's eighth birthday. The theme was "a trip around the world." The party included the creation of imaginary countries, flags, and anthems, and was topped off by the lovely cake produced by a local bakery that you see below. Happy Birthday to Carter!

Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Today we attended the Lunar New Year celebration in Chinatown. We found a nice spot on the parade route and waited on the cold curb for a while, popping fun trick noisemakers that a fellow parade-goer gave to Carter. Finally, the colorful parade passed by. Happy Year of the Snake!
