Dragonboat Festival

I was really excited to watch the dragonboat races, but Nate's work had a co-ed team that needed more women, so I actually got to participate. Our team won the first race, so we raced again the next day-against 3 high school teams. Needless to say, that was our last race.

We practiced all month, and my arms are in great shape now. I challenged Nate to an arm-wrestling contest, but he's too afraid.

The flag-catcher has the funnest job...

There's nothing like a good victory squid-on-a-stick! (Yes, I ate it)

That is so neat! I have always wanted to do some rowing. I think it would be a great workout.

We saw some of the races on Friday afternoon and I thought of you. I thought of how awesome it is that you were able to participate first hand! What a fun and memorable experience. I even told Cody we're going to have to get a team together to enter the races next year. :)

And did you really eat the squid?? Wow. I have to ask, did you like it???
