For Joel's 30th birthday celebration we headed back to Bubba's BBQ for their annual chili cook-off. We had a blast, eating chili, hanging with friends and embarrassing Joel with a giant hat and beer glasses.

among those items, a toothbrush!
|Everyone was enjoying the nice weather and great food!|

If you remember around this time last year I shared our trip to the grape farm to eat lunch and pick some fresh grapes. This year we took the same trip to fill our freezer with delicious grapes and brought some friends with us.
It was such a fun day! It is always great getting out of the city for a little while!

We had really high hopes for the muslim market when I set out with some friends to see what they had to offer. The listing we had found online for it boasted of fresh imported produce and made it sounds like a must see in the city. Well, it was interesting. It was just a few booths set up on a really busy street and a few chairs set out for those who wanted to stay and eat. Some of the fare actually did look good, breads and noodle dishes but we didn't sample...just observed. I snapped a few pics with my phone so that you all could see what I am talking about.
Not sure it would be at the top of my list to go back but I guess everything is an adventure when you live in China!

Last weekend we headed down to the local BBQ joint (yes still in China!) for a relaxing Sunday. They had a blue grass band set up on their patio so we spent the day enjoying the music and drinking cold beer. The boys were even brave enough for a shot of Jager!
