Dragon Boat Race Day, of course! One exciting change from Saturday's practice, this time the boats were decked out with their dragon heads and tails. Zoe definitely had a ball, declaring after the third and final heat that she was ready for a fourth! After 7 hours melting in the Texas heat, I was ready for HOME and some nice chilly air conditioning.
Both girls also enjoyed the rest of the festival -- lion dances, dragon dances, various Asian dancers, and festival foods both familiar (funnel cake!) and exotic (Thai corn patties!).
Oh, and we're pretty sure we WON the youth division -- it helps that we were the only youth boat entered!
