Two cultures....two Holidays

Today was the Chinese holiday of the Harvest Festival where families share "moon cakes". They are pastry with a bean curd filling sometimes also including a hard boiled duck egg to represent the moon. Needless to say our friend Sam had a hard time finding these the boys shared a Moon Pie instead. 

It was also "talk like a pirate" day and if you dress like a pirate at Krispy Kreme you got a free dozen glazed doughnuts   Aaarrrgghhh

As much as I would like to share some Chinese culture with Wade we may have to wait until he is old enough to help us research where/what he wants to learn about. In the mean time he will learn all about what it means to grow up in America...with all our silly materialistic celebrations that are often fueled by lots of sugar.  Pirate Day complete next up....Halloween followed by birthday cake on Nov 1st.
