Mid-Autumn Moon Gathering

Hannah and I are blessed to share friendships with a number of local families who have also formed their families through the blessing of international adoption.  Yesterday J & D opened their home to our group once again and oh what fun we had!

We started our afternoon at a great little park down the road from their home.   The parents had time to play with our kids and visit together too as some of us only see one another at these twice yearly celebrations of the Mid-Autumn Moon and Chinese New Year/Tet.

Hannah and I are blessed to have Ange care for Hannah while I am at work.  I love that our families are so close and that our children share such special friendships.  Here Hannah and Grayson are sharing some spinning time together.  For as fast as my girl often moves, she can be equally slow and gentle when younger friends are involved.IMG_4753

Before we walked back to J&D’s we attempted a group shot on the climber.IMG_4760

While the parents prepared supper the kids made lanterns for our evening parade.  IMG_4766

Oh how I love my little lion!IMG_4792


  1. What a great gathering!!! So nice you were all able to celebrate the Moon Festival together!!

  2. Ooo, awesome lantern parade - you guys had tall sticks and noisemakers - will have to do those next year. How fun. Love that you have such a big wonderful group to celebrate with.

  3. That looks so fun! Hannah is adorable! ~Golda :)

  5. Love the idea of a parade. Maybe next year we'll try to plan something like this. Love the lanterns. We were so busy planning for our little holiday to a family wedding that we didn't spend much time celebrating this festival--I'll have to get more on track for next year.

    I'm so excited for you--less than 1 week until you're in Disney. Such a special place to spend time with family and friends. Can't wait to hear all about your adventures. When you return, we'll have to set up a play date. Unfortunately, I think it will be cold to follow through on our original plans of time at the splash pad and a picnic. But you never know--Mother Nature may surprise us this year with a beautiful Indian summer in late October.

    Safe travels, my friends.
