Another Successful Year :)

It is a bittersweet moment when the JCI Carnival comes to an end.  The weekend that you have been working so hard for and looking forward to is over.  You are exhausted from putting up all those banners and stuffed from constant eating throughout the day, but you know it was worth it.  You can see it in the crowds cheering and hollering after a hula performance, in the groups of friends chattering over some yakisoba and lau lau, and in the little kids proudly showing off their new goldfishes and paper airplanes.  Success.
