Performing at Nishi Obon 2010

It's obon season again!  Here we are at Nishi Obon, you could say it is our home obon since it is where Maiya has been going to preschool for the last 2 1/2 years, and we are members at Nishi.   Between our family, we sampled just about everything there is to eat and drink this year.   This year was cool, not hot at all, and not as crowded as in the past two years.  It was fun watching the kids dance.  It was nice that my mom, dad and Auntie Keiko came to see her perform, her 3rd time on the Nishi stage.

Pretty sure we have a picture from last year in the same yukata, same location
except that she is wearing her great grandma's obi.
