Tif decided KC should experience the 26th Okinawan Festival that was being held this weekend at Kapiolani Park at the foot of Diamond Head in Waikiki.
We actually parked on the slopes of Diamond Head and then had to push KC's stroller through the grassy field in the hot sun. That was rather a challenge.
It was sad to see the tents of homeless people just on the periphery of the festival. Housing is so expensive in Hawaii that some people have been forced to live in tents in various parts of the island.
I'm suspecting this is one of the treats that drew Tif to the festival. She does enjoy andagi which are Okinawan doughnuts (without the holes)and quite tasty.
The bonsai exhibit was beautiful. But the tent was sure hot.
Watching the Okinawan dancers was a lot of fun.
My mom said she'd heard that Okinawan people have long life expectancies. Somebody also told her that their pig's feet soup could be one of the reasons. Therefore she asked us to bring some back for her. We did. I hope it works.
KC was completely tuckered out and slept throughout the ride home and then went to her portable crib for a two hour nap! Hmmm...actually, we ALL took a nap! What a day!
