Really and truly I tried not to embarrass any members of my family on our Disney vacation. Things went along pretty well, all things considered, until the very last night.
And I promise, I thought they said “Children, bring your parents.”
Rumor has it they said, “Parents, bring your children.”
And then I think they meant for you to drop them off.
I missed that part.
Which may explain why I was the only parent in the hula demonstration lesson/performance at the O’hana Restaurant at the Polynesian Resort on the last night of our vacation.
In my defense, there was a man next to me. When I pointed this out to Bill he said…“yes, but did you notice he was carrying a baby?”
Now I did see Bill and Caroline DYING laughing on the side while Savannah and I did, what in my opinion was one rockin’ hula dance… and it did cross my mind towards the end of the show that all I could see were the tops of the other dancers heads (by the end the baby carrying guy was nowhere to be seen), but I didn’t think that much about it. As you can see by this picture I was concentrating very intently on the lesson the guy in the Hawaiian shirt was giving.
But, for my extraordinary efforts, they gave me a floral lei and the whole restaurant clapped.
