Dragon Parade

We went to the dragon parade on Saturday in celebration of Chinese New Year. It was awesome, lots of contortionist, acrobats, martial artistist, dragons and amazing food. I love Chinese food!! We had pork dumplings and chow mien and some pastry thing filled with I don't know what but it was GOOD!

Anyways I just wanted to share some pictures from out little adventure.

It is good luck to put money in the dragon's mouth so they worked the crowd, made me want to put on a dragon head!

Holy Crap, she is balancing on her collar bone, holding on with her teeth and spining those rug things.

Hanging out on some spears

Jumping through hoops, backwards, frontwards, spinning.

Dancing dragons in the parade

He started out laying down and slowly stood up holding her like this, never even wobbled.

Then she curled up holding her feet like a ring and he tossed her up and put his arms through her like a game of ring toss, she fell all the way until she was resting here on his thighs. I dont think I have that much trust in anyone.

So that was out day, a fun little adventure date out with the Hubbs. I think we are going to practice some of those moves for the staff retreat talent show.

I celebrated Chinese New Year at my adopted niece's home this weekend. It looks like your celebration was much more fun.

Amazing acts and yes, we must rent a dragon head for next year.
