I would like to say that I am the perfect mom and that we spent our Saturday following all of the above traditions. But sadly I'm not and we didn't.
Listening to the traditional Autumn Moon story.
Eating moon cakes.
Well, these weren't the actual moon cakes that we ate.
I forgot to take a picture of those.
But I did find this nifty picture on the web,
and ours looked exactly like these.
Except for the lily. No lily with our moon cakes.
Meeting up with our new friend Mattie.
Molly, Mia and Megan (Mia's big sister-whom Molly idolizes) line up for the lantern parade.
Mom and Molly at the end of an enjoyable evening!
Totally random observation...Gee, there are a lot of M names in this post: Molly, Mia, Megan, Mattie, Mom. Told ya-random!
