Burmese Water Festival

In our small town (7,700ish) we have a community of people from Burma. Mallory has had a best friend, May, since pre-K that is Burmese. We went to the Burmese Festival this year, but unfortunately we missed the music and dancing. We did get to eat some delicious food, enjoy wonderful hospitality and watch our kids have a blast with some of their school friends. Next year, we're definitely going for the whole day. Earl and I both felt like we missed out on a wonderful time by being so late! Earl had to work at his second job all day though. Oh well, next year we will plan better so we can spend the whole day at the festival!

Just like the program shows, the kids enjoyed a water fight!
This is Mallory and one of her best friends

This little girl has been in Ezie's class for the last 2 years. Have you ever seen such a big smile!?

One of the little girls was so cute. She ran up to Earl with a water bottle and dumped some on him and said with a huge smile, "Happy Burmese Water Festival Day!" Earl got the biggest kick out of it! We had a nice time and we even walked the 2 miles their and 2 miles back, which was a nice bit of family time and some good excercise for me. What a great day!!
