Brad's 30th Birthday
Well I am now 30 years old and I had a great birthday here in China. Kim got all our friends together for dinner and then some fun at a bowling alley. We had my favorite, duck at a local restaruant.
Then came the birthday cake, which we got a cool flower candle. The candle shoots out this flame and plays music, while it "blooms ." We saw this kind of candle at a friends b-day party earlier in our trip and I knew I wanted one on my cake!
After we stuffed our faces with cake we went off to the bowling alley to have some fun! It is a small place with about 8 lanes. Most of our friends had one been bowling once or twice, so we knew they would have fun. Our scores were not that good, but everyone was laughing and trying to help there teams win.
The last picture shows me in my finest b-day gift, the local favorite pj's. The local people think they are so comfortable they wear them around in public! All of us always crack up at how funny they look. I'll tell you what, they are supper cozy on the cold, rainy days here. I told our friend Kerrie I would wear it on my b-day if she got it for me. I only wore it to meet everyone at the studio, then had to take it off! It was to hot! Plus, people were staring at me even more than usual and it was too much!
