We just keep goin' back for more...

This afternoon Isaac said, "Let's go night market! I want it!" when we asked him if he wanted pizza or night market food.

Some of these pics are from another night where we went "native" and gave our boys baths and put them in their pajamas before going to the night market. If you go anywhere past about 7pm, kids are in pj's. It's how they roll here and we did as well.  We don't always, but why not?
 
The rice padi by our house at sunset. Sunset is over the ocean here. Pic is a little enhanced, just because I thought it was fun.

 This one is for Andrea... these are like gigantic Chinese donuts like you can get in Thailand hotels... sweetened condensed milk over these bad boys and yummmm!
 30 cent drinks. Free stares from the locals.

 Pajamas!
 Meat! On banana leaves!
 Fish!
 This family was so cute with their night market findings, motorcycle helmets, and bunny balloon.
 Oh Pandan Balls! The reason Isaac says "I want it" about the night market. (Kaya balls are also good, but we like the pandan ones best)
 The pandan balls in the bag... pandan is a sweet substance. Pandan balls are like small pancakes with pandan filling. Yum!
A very blurry pic of the inside...but the motorcycle in front of us is clear! You get the drift. 

Only pic of me at the night market...I like it too!

 These last two pics were taken at the same time on our way home. The first is the moon rising looking east over the hills in the middle of our island...you can juuuust barely see a bright star (or planet?) along the top towards the right.  The second is looking directly west back towards the water (you can't see it, but it's there past the trees:) at the sunset.  What a perfect evening to go to the night market!

So fun! I think the Hamptons need to pack up and come enjoy the scenery with you guys.
Asher enjoys the BKK equivalent of going to the night market...the MALL.

I loved seeing Anthony's bandaged 2nd elbow. I am sure the folks at night market appreciated it being covered up as well!

So, so cool that there is a rice padi near your house. So cool. It also makes me smile to see palm trees. :)
