Poppie and Nonnie Week (India week 2)

Poppie and Nonnie came on Sunday, Jan. 20th so we celebrated by going out to our traditional Poppie and Nonnie all you can eat Chinese food. It used to be Super Buffet in Dupont but since they built a AAA Buffet in Lakewood, we go there now. My favorites are the fried zucchini and egg rolls. Dada and Poppie love the all you can eat sushi. Kivi always gets super adventurous and tries some sort of new seafood. She's tried crab, shrimp, squid and octopus but mussels and clams are still her favorites. 

We all tried frog legs this time. But I think only Poppie and Kivi liked it.

The next morning we had...Basket of Presents! This time was wonderful because everything was edible. That meant fun was had and then it was gone!

 Nonnie taught us all how to play chess, since it originated in India and it soon became a favorite. We also learned about Mother Teresa, Ancient India and did some yoga.

We drew chess pieces and Eben even wrote one of his blogs on how to play the game. He was so creative taking pictures with straw to show the direction each piece could move.

Poppie and Nonnie were so helpful and spent so much of their time over at our condo helping Peter.

Nonnie was the painting queen.

Poppie fixed the recessed lighting all over the condo.

Back at home, the weather allowed for some outdoor time so Kivi tried to teach Opal how to ride a bike.
