Happy Birthday, Honey!

Here's some pics from my DH's birthday...we actually went to a luau! I've been to some on other islands, but this one was unique to the people of Kaua'i. Still the same basics tho'...lots of food, drink, & a really nice show. Enjoy!

On the grounds of the Smith gardens, with Ron heading over the bridge to what is called Japanese Island.
Pretty ponds... ...some jackfruit...
...and the flower of a mountain apple.
Looking out toward the replica of the Easter Island head...
Looking over toward the island where weddings are held.
I love the color of the bark of this tree!
Back at the imu pit before the pig is removed.
And the guys busy digging our food out!
Then on to drinks, dinner, & the birthday folks learning the hukilau hula!
And all that was before the show! Happy Birthday!!!

Hey Jo & Freebird! Ron says thanks! He had a fun weekend!
Aren't those mountain apple flowers interesting? He used to work at the botanical gardens here, so told me all about the flowers & plants! And it takes most all day to cook the pig. They put it in at 7:30 a.m. We ate at 6:30! They also made rice pudding in the imu! Yummy!
Warmest aloha,
