Blogging vs Vlogging...Aloha Fest!!
Hey Moms and Dads, So as you may know or maybe you don't, this all started with a YouTube channel. Since I've started this sight I wanted to have at least one blog a week and two vlogs a month. The problem I've run into is if you want to vlog your adventures you have to set-up your day with vlogging in mind. Which I'm finding out is really hard to do. I'm out with the family and I get so caught up in just spending time with them that I forget to whip out the camera and vlog. So here I am in front of the computer with no videos to post and only can talk about the aftermath. I'm finding that it's not easy trying to balance working, family time and trying to chase my own personal dream. What I am finding is that I actually love writing and have started following positive, inspiring people that want me to continue sharing my story. So hopefully soon you'll see more videos posted.
So this past weekend we went to the Aloha Festival in Sacramento Ca. I bring up the previous topic because this was the situation that I wish I did whip out the camera and do more vlogging. So instead I'm here writing about it, lol. Anyway, this is a bit of a drive for us but we decided to go to it because we missed the one that's more local. There were going to be vendors we wanted to see and some family friends were going to have a food tent there. The weather was great and we thought this one was better than the one we frequent because of the lay-out of the venue. It was at the Cal-Expo. The vendors were all in one area and the there was a little of a cultural center they had set-up in the pavilion. There were two stages of entertainment set-up and then the food vendors were lined up on the other end. Unfortunately we didn't make it to the second stage but it looked like that's where they were doing the traditional chant competition. I did catch a performance they did on one of the stages I thought was fun to watch. It's a song from "Lilo and Stitch"
Needless to say we had a blast. We were out enjoying the weather, enjoyed a little shopping, some good food and great company. This was Makana's first Aloha fest, it was a long day and both boys did great. I'm enjoying the weekends off that I can spend with the family. I may be getting spoiled with this shift.
One thing I always have to remind myself is that the money will always be there, for the most part anyway, but the time with my family is fleeting and I could never get it back once it's gone. So get out there and spend some quality time with the family. Don't let the "paper chase" over shadow them. I hope that your weekend was as productive as mine. Let's all work on having a great week ahead. Thanks for stopping by and all the continued support, we'll talk again in the next one.
