The girls and I drove to Richardson for the the Dallas Chinese Community Center Chinese New Year celebration. When we were almost there Nadia asked me if we were going to be the only ones dressed up in silks. Just at that moment I saw an elderly gentleman with his groceries dressed in a traditional silk shirt which I pointed out. As we were looking for a parking spot all the girls could see where Chinese people and Nadia yelled out, “This is like being in China! Cool!” The girls were also excited about seeing the lion and dragon dance.
The Dragon Dance was so fun for the girls and we had great seats.
After the celebration we visited with some friends and then decided to eat at the Jeng Chi restaurant and bakery. I had liked their facebook page months before and was excited to try it. The food was AMAZING and authentic. The green onion pancakes were so good I almost wished it was all I had ordered. The girls gobbled up their food and we took a to-go meal home to Mike who couldn’t join us because he was working. It was a great day and I am so glad that I made the drive all the way up there.
