Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Saturday we went as a family to the local Annual Asia Pacific New Year’s Celebration.  There are several different booths to visit and several different performances representing many different Asian countries.  This time we planned our arrival and eating around the Chinese performances, though many of the other dances were also quite fun to watch as time permitted.  My goal was to capture all my hunt photos at the celebration.  I should have checked my list one last time before leaving...well, you'll see.

Facial Feature:
Sunflower's eye peeking out from one of the pieces to the flower lanterns the kids made at one of the craft booths.  This year they still had plenty of colors of paper petals left, so our three little lanterns aren't only green and white like last year.

And here's a gratuitous photo of Huckleberry with his finished lantern so you can see what they made.

Spicy:
My husband's Kim-chi was spicy, but I didn't get a chance to take a picture before he ate it all (because I was busy eating my own food) so here is the drink we had to wash down the spice.  Ummm, I prefer Coke.

Gold:
The children from the Chinese Academy looked really cute dancing in their gold tops with sparkly gold crowns.  (I blurred their faces on purpose.  I hope it doesn't make it too creepy.  Trust me they were adorable.)

Fabric:
There were many beautiful fabrics and outfits all through the center...

And since I forgot to even look for shadows I'll give you a few more fabric photos.
I love the intricate embroidery.  Reminds me of some of the needlework my mother used to do.


One last photo of the dances.  I thought the fabric of their outfits and the red fabric they were waving around made for a beautiful dance.

We are looking forward to next year's event.

Lovely shots. What a great celebration, lots of photo opportunities. Love the way you were able to get them to fit this week's prompts so well. I think the flower lantern is really pretty. Lovely fabric too.

I'm totally laughing at your comment about preferring a coke. I insisted on buying these 100% coconut water drinks at the store. My hubs kept telling me I would not like them- but he didn't really tell me why. So I spent a small fortune on them- only to get them home, crack one open & realize - it didn't taste anything like I thought because it was unsweetened- so yeah- for some reason I expected straight from the coconut to taste more like a Pina Colada- completely forgetting that it needs sweetener to taste that way. :)
