Kalaheo Ward Luau

Our annual summer ward party this year was held at Salt Pond Beach on Southern Kauai. Our prior Bishop, Bishop Barino roasted a pig in a pit over night and other members of the ward each brought different foods that are served at Luau's. Each different organization practiced for weeks, learning random hula dances. Above is our elders (with John in the middle in his blue hawaiian shirt and joined by his good friends Brady E. and Dale K.) Below is our Primary teachers. I didn't join in the fun because I was 8 months pregnant and it just didn't seem natural for me to hula at that stage in pregnancy.The primary children were taught two basic hulas and did a wonderful job. Hailey is standing in the middle in her light green Hawaiian dress, and Alyssa is setting on the far left side in her red Hawaiian dress)

Abby loves to show off a little and while she is still in nursery she didn't join the other primary children. But, that didn't stop her and many of us got laughs from her dancing over on the side. I would say it was funner to watch her than the others, but I am a little biased.

Each of our girls had lots of fun, played with friends, had a wonderful dinner, learned a little Hawaiian culture (thanks to Auntie Nani Higa), and did their normal beach exploration.

Abby and Brad Wilcox have always had lots of fun together, she will sure miss him next month when he leaves for his Korean mission.
