Lantern Festival

It's this weekend! We will be tapping into our New Orleans roots and pull out some good ole Mardi Gras tricks for the rising of the moon.

The plan is to meet the community at our beach and watch the full moon rise! This turns into a really fun event for the kids-lots of glow sticks-and picnic food! Keeping track of the children is the hard part-once the sun goes down they all look alike-just 3 foot shadows with glowing necklaces!
So we tape their names and our phone numbers to their backs and try to not loose anyone!
We sit close to toilets and bring a wagon and ice chest. Let the festivities begin!

Singapore iPhone Pics Tip

Just back from a mini-break in Singapore. Here are a few snaps of the city.

I took all of these pictures with my iPhone 4.

Then-all your pics are ready for uploading via wifi at the hotel (accessible while in airplane mode).

It's a great travel tip!
