This weekend, the Monkeys went to Monkey Father-in-Law's restaurant to celebrate the first birthday of the son of Mr. Monkey's cousin Li'l Buddy (which I believe is his first cousin once removed, if my memory of the table of consanguinity serves me right).
Two of Mr. Monkey's cousins have three children each, and the mother of Li'l Buddy is pregnant again already. Add to that Li'l Monkey Niece, and you have a veritable zoo. And now you know why we didn't invite children to our wedding. There would've been at least 20 noisy rugrats running around just from family. No wonder China once had an overpopulation problem.
As usual, the food was middling at best, but we have to go to this restaurant time after time because Monkey Father-in-Law is part owner. Ho hum.
