instant tradition

The best part about being an adult is making your childhood dreams come true on a grand scale.  I’ve been hula-hooping since I could walk (truth: I started ballet when I was 3.. and.. well.. it’s kind of the same thing, right? I mean, balance and movement and what not. Nevermind, just go with it), and I always wished.wished.wished I could hula hoop somewhere besides my garage.  I mean, who likes huling around all the junk that didn’t fit in the house? Not me.  I shook it left and right and promised myself I would hula in coola places when I was older.

Since I figure that most people have dreams just like mine, I decided to host a hula hoop competition on the streets of Minneapolis.  The pictures tell the story:

  1. Oh yeah, now that’s what I’m talking about 🙂 The pure joy on the participant’s faces are priceless. You have done a good service to help more of Minneapolis smile on this day. In particular, I love the faces of the onlookers in the backgrounds of the photos 😉 Great stuff as always!

  2. LOL! That is simply pure happiness and it totally made me smile this morning! I love it! I have long thought that adults need to release their inner five year old and this experiment proves my point! Such happiness on the faces of those Minnesotans! 🙂

    Thank you for spreading happiness this way, Jen! You are like the sunshine and the Light you spread is infectious! 🙂

  3. Alright, these photos are wonderful! Minneapolis really has some beautiful people, doesn’t it?! What a fun afternoon … I totally could have taken you all in a hula-hoop-off 😛

Tell me something happy:
