This is a photo of the dress in it's original design. I decided to up cycle it into something amazing for miss Danya to wear.
It is made in the knot top style, so that the straps actually thread through button holes and tie in a bow to make the dress stay up.
So on the day of her May Day performance we headed to the school a little early so that I could get a parking spot. Then after dropping Danya off at her classroom we went to the parking lot to wait for the celebration.
Danya and Ms. Akagi before the show.
Due to the fact that Danya's school one of largest in the state, these whole school events are rather complicated. There are 3 elementary schools in the Waipahu area and they are the 3 largest in the state. Years ago when the school grew so big that they had to add portable classrooms which look more like small cabins, they had to remove the performance mound that most of the schools in Hawaii have. So the May Day performances were to be on the black top of the parking lot. Ai! It was hot that day. No trade winds and in the 90s except on the black top where I think it was 200 degrees okay so that is an exaggeration, but it sure felt that way.
Then of course her class sang...

After May Day was Pau (or done) we had the option to pick up the kids early. Maylene, Danya, Kat and I felt that after all that heat Air Conditioning and food was what we really needed so we headed to AntiPastos a local Italian restaurant to enjoy lunch.
And just a little bit of Katriel cuteness...
