After the family concert, we drove back home at once, because there was a church gathering at 6pm. It is a Hawaiian Luau organised by the Grays.
Everyone needed to bring a dish and wear something Hawaiian. I cooked pineapple fried rice. Pineapple cos its kind of Hawaiian. I did put it in a nice casserole dish, and decorate the rice with olives and more pineapple on top.
I didn't bring my loud Hawaiian shirts! And it was too late to ask my mom to send it over.
So we just tried to wear our most colorful clothes.
The kids had their bumwear batik shirts, I had a red skirt and i wore my flower brooch on my hair. Can you believe dh's most colorful top is this sweater?!? His wardrobe is full of solid beige, black, blue, white... that's all. He does have a red shirt and a purple one, but those are stiff long sleeve shirts and he doesn't like them.
When we reached, we took a family pic at their banner.
Almost everyone wore Hawaiian shirts or had their own leis. We were each given a plastic lei when we arrived too. Beth had a Hawaiian dress!
After a hearty dinner and wonderful chats with those sitting around us (the Crills, Tami Waller, and Sun Cha), we went home and took some crazy family pics. Here are 2 of them:
left: we were supposed to laugh wildly but ds2 didn't do it in time. he was still "gong gong" until after we laughed madly, then he begun, but the camera clicked already.
right: supposed to be fierce and do fighting pose. ds2 again... don't know what he is doing...
rainbows every day, do not worry for the morrow
