Happy Chinese New Year

Owen, being 11 and male, is not a fan of Valentine's Day. He hung in there with the family on Sunday morning while small surprises were given and received, but the big love-fest just isn't his bag. This year, however, Valentines Day is also Chinese New Year, and since Owen loves all things Chinese, he spear-headed a trip to London's Chinatown. It was a huge party! The dragons were dancing, the drums were drumming, and the crowds were out en mass. We ate incredible dim sum at a restaurant Owen found on-line, and awful desert from a Chinese bakery (I hate sweet red bean paste.) We exploded Chinese snap-n-pops in the rain that night with thousands of other wet people, all of us dodging umbrellas and prowling souvenir shops. It was loud and crazy, and Chinatown rocked. As did Owen.

I loved the China Town pictures, I bet you had great fun!!!. Sorry about the rain, but you are in London so rain is not an option.
You ,Bob, and Ella look great! I really miss you, and love all of you...............................Nana June
