My favorite event of the year occurred Sunday, August 22 in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. Since I started attending the festival I have wanted to take part in the dancing. I did a little last year. This year I took the free dancing lessons at the Higashi Honganji Temple in Little Tokyo. Wow… these dances are hard to master. 🙂 Well, suffice it to say that at least I learned enough to almost look like I belonged. Take a look at the dances I participated in below. First though, my great granddaughter, Ryan, for no reason that we know of, decided to be a pedestrian traffic cop. Baby Ryan is 3 years old. Is this funny? Hilarious actually.
