Usually our 4th of July looks something like this
The major Tahitian competition that the Halau participates in every year is Tahiti Fete, and it's always held over the 4th of July weekend. We usually spend the 4th in San Jose either preparing for, dancing at, or watching, Fete. This year Tahiti Fete was cancelled, and we had to figure out what to do with all our free time. Somehow it was decided that the thing to do was go to the county fair. Steve takes the kids to the fair every summer, but I haven't gone with them in years. As you can guess, it's really not my thing. To the surprise of all involved, today I decided to join them. I'm all for a fun family outing, even if there are smelly animals involved. Steve and the kids really know what they want out of their fair experience. They are there to eat fair food, see the animals and exhibits, and they don't waste their time riding the rides. The animals were interesting, the food was sinfully good, it wasn't too hot, it wasn't crowded, we had a great time. For us, the county fair and fireworks is an unusual way to celebrate the 4th of July. I'm sure we'll be back to normal next year.
