The Annual Dragon Boat Festival

Well, this weekend was also the FCC annual Dragon Boat Festival. This year it was held on Mud Island, and all the kids decorated their ducks like dragons and floated them down the Mud Island River Walk. They had a blast!! Here's Claire with Abby Grace, who is also from the Hunan Province!

Lance and his little clone.....

Such a pretty day for an outing together!

Jesse waiting very patiently for his duck to make its way......notice duck below.
