I love living in Hawaii. Every year around this time our small, very remote town has a Hula Festival. Yesterday was this years big event. It's always so wonderful and our family really enjoys the show every year. It is clear every year how hard the Hula Dancer, both men and women, work to perfect their artful dance. My children always enjoy. My daughter loves the Hula dancing and stands on the side dancing, moving her hands as if she really knows what she is doing ... I think she is a natural. My son, though not into the dancing, always has the best time. He runs into his school buddies and there is a water slide for the kids that he spends most of his time on. There are horse rides, also a favorite of my daughter. My favorite part is run by a very kind woman named Melody. She works with the schools and the town to promote reading for the children. There is a display of books, each child can take one free book. They have tables set up for coloring and the children can get their faces painted. She has bags full of prizes for the kids and they can participate in potato sack races, three legged races, relay races. My daughter entered her first race, a three legged race, and she and her partner won first place. My little 4 year old in her first race was a big winner. I was so proud. My son got there just in time to take second place in a 50 yard dash. The food is always great. The local restaurant serves these wrap type sandwiches they call HOGZILLA's and they are so good, I can't even describe it. The children of course get their shaved ice just as they are running out of energy and it's time to go.
