Quingming

Today we went to the cemetery for Qingming. It's a Chinese tradition that we go to the cemetery every year to tend to our loved one's graves and celebrate their lives. We go all out and have a little picnic and spend time with our family remembering our loved ones. Yup, right smack dab in the middle of the cemetery! I bet people think we're nuts!

And yes, that's a pig's head!
