Fifa Fever

The World Cup starts in a few days, and signs are everywhere around the country, like in George where we were for two weeks.
George is particularly host to Japan.

For Josh's birthday, we had a special lunch at McDonald's where they had a Count Down showing 20 more days, 14 hours, 49 minutes and 29 seconds until the World Cup Soccer championships begin.

Paul & Evangel made it on a long hike with Benjamin to Pepsi Cola Falls. Tim, Josh, and I almost made it, but we wimped out because of blisters.

Josh's legs and an elephant's leg--whose is prettier? For his birthday we went to George museum.

I am so not a pottery/china expert, but I've learned to spot the Willow Pattern in china here. In the pictures, you can see the story of a princess who tried to run away with a commoner, since her father wouldn't let them get married. They were captured and then turned into birds and flew away. It's not strictly a true story, but see the 2 birds near the top of the plate?

And my favorite moment in the museum. I tinkered with a music box, and that antique blasted out music as though it were attached to big speakers! Evangel dropped to the floor to hide. It was kind of fun to be the embarrassing one for a change.
