DD really enjoyed the lion dance and dragon dance. Let’s face it, DD likes to dance!
After the dances we all went down to the edge of the water to watch the main event-Dragon Boat Races Unfortunately, we only got to see 2 of the boats racing. It wasn’t quite as exciting as we thought it might be. The program directors had allotted several hours for the races. Now we know why. It took them much longer to get everyone in the proper place than it took to actually race. Oh well, at least we had fun visiting. We even met a family with a daughter from the very same SWI as DD. Other than our original travel group, we’ve never personally met anyone from there. If Marlee’s mom is reading this blog, I’d love to hear from you. Maybe we can compare notes about our girls..........
A festival is never complete without a little face painting or arm painting in this case.
At first, the girls waited patiently in the tattoo line.
Showing off their tattoos..All for one and one for all!
We were fortunate enough to find a nice parking garage close to all of the activities. At least we thought we were lucky until we decided to leave for lunch and realized that there was no attendant on duty to let us out of the garage. Never fear…. Daddy Darling had a great idea….He had Ski Instructor hold up the lift gate while we all drove under it to get out. I sure hope there wasn’t a camera taking pictures of us. I just wish I had taken a picture. It was too funny!
Oops! Ski Instructor, were you supposed to pay this? Ha!
