Just after New Year's we took the overnight train to Chennai (on the southeastern coast of India) to spend a few days with our friends Lydia and Judah (they live in Ooty, but were on holiday with Lydia's family). Lydia's parents graciously let us stay in their home, and Lydia was an excellent tour guide of the city. Some of the highlights were visiting a snake park, playing in the ocean, going to an amusement/water park, shopping, and just relaxing with friends. Ryan also led worship in Lydia's brother's church on Sunday, and then sang in one of the english services at New Life Church (the largest church in Chennai). I'll post several pictures with captions so you can get a taste of our adventures.

The kids at the entrance to the amusement/water park called Queensland. We had such a great day!

Addie getting a lesson on how to drive a bumper car. It was funny to us that she was trying to explain to a 3 year old how to drive, and even funnier that she was doing it in Tamil.

At the water park playing in the wave pool. Addie wasn't all that impressed with the ocean waves, but she kind of liked the calm side of the pool. Also, here's a pic of the "baby bump".

On St. Thomas Mount overlooking the city.

Lauren: "I'm so glad I wore a ponytail!"
Judah: "Are my eyes open?"
Brenna: "Why did I even bother brushing my hair?!"

Addie playing with Judah and his cousin.

Playing in the sand - lots of fun, but a huge mess to clean up!
