This weekend we had our ward luau. It was a lot of fun for the ward and turned out very festive and the food was great! I didn't get any pictures once the activity started because I was in the kitchen solving the food crisis, but here are the decorations. The food tables had pineapples on them made from pinecones.These were the centerpieces for all of the tables.
Here are some shots of the walls and other decorations. Didn't they do a great job on no budget?
The Tiki Club was where we served Pina Coladas.
I was in charge of food and spent all week cooking rice and Kailua pork for the ward. It was a bit hectic, but turned out very tasty.
We had a hula hooping contest (won by one of the men in the ward!) and limbo. Our bishop's wife is very supportive and always participates. Way to go Charity! We also had the young men and the missionaries do the haka and a sister missionary who did a beautiful Polynesian dance.
I really enjoy my calling on the activities committee but I will sure enjoy them more once I'm not running all over the place getting things in order. Kendall's parents traveled the furthest to come to the activity, flying in from Europe and driving straight to the church. They were a bit tired, but it was a good reunion.
