Every Fourth of July, our town has a luau to celebrate. They have it at the city aquatic center. Really, it's not fair to call it just a pool. It is the coolest place. Remember when we were growing up that our city pool was just one big rectangle? And there wasn't even a shallow end, it was like 4 feet deep? And the water was bitter cold? This pool is so much more. They have the rectangle for the lap people. Then they have the kiddy pool. It is probably 4 feet at the deepest. The shallow part is actually like at a lake or something. It gradually goes in. And gradually. You can walk in about 5 feet and still have the water at your ankles. It's great for kids. And it's heated. nice. And it has fountains and slides and stuff. How cool is that?! But, I digress.
Ok, so a celebration for Fourth of July, they call it Red, White, and Bluau. They have hula dancers, both adults and kids. I tried my best to get good shots, but it was dark. Forgive me. This first shot is pretty cool in that the dancers had candles and this is what it looks like when they are dancing.
They also had carnival games. Jack and Josh got matching tattoos, on their muscles. They are very proud of their muscles.
