My First Function

My boss...Aunty Lani Soliai...who is the manager of the Luau and Catering at PCC...gave me the oportunity to plan and prepare my very first function. The function was a luncheon for the PCC Board of Directors. I pretty much was given the responsibility because this year's theme was Hawaiian and I am Hawaiian. I was in charge of creating a menu, designing and making table centerpieces, menu cards and uniforms. I put in a lot of hours and never want to sew again...well, for a while...I think it was a success. Here are a few pictures.

Looking Back...Welcome

Another year has come and gone. 2009 was a good one. In April, Joey and I celebrated our first anniversary. In May, I got to see snow for the first time during our week long cruise in Alaska. In June, Joey graduated. In August, I turned 23 and the new night show at PCC began "HA: Breath of Life". In September, my family got to go to the temple in Kona and did family work, Joey also turned 25. In October, PCC had a great turnout for the Haunted Lagoon. In November, Joey and I had our first vacation by ourselves (well...not totally...Wolfgang and Jaimie were there too!). In December, many of our friends were getting married and Christmas was wonderful. 2009 came and went so fast that I can't believe it is January of 2010. Hopefully more amazing adventures are waiting to be discovered and new memories are right around the corner. Let the fun begin!

Joey's Booboo

Joey was asked to help with the fireknife and ended up comming home with a mean burn on his knuckles. Never again!

His pinky started to blister.

Fresh new skin.

The healing process.

Family Trip to Kona

My family went to Kona to do some temple work for some family members who have passed away...we had a great time...too bad it was so short!

My Aunty (Dad's Oldest Sister) invited us to the Old Tutu Ladies Hula Festival to watch her dance. Some of these old people...I tell you!

This Halau had a little girl playing the Ukulele with the rest of the musicians...she was awesome!

I have never seen a geco like this was cool!

This turtle was eating the seaweed off the rocks on the beach.

We loved feeding these little yellow birds.

Talk about teamwork...we found this puzzle in our condo on the last day we were there and it was the world's most difficult puzzle. It was a collage of yellow smiley faces but the difficult part was that it was double sided with the same picture facing a different direction. Even with all three of us, we could only finish the outside straight edges.

Happy Birthday To You!

Kapua (Joey's little sister) turned 11 on June 17th. We planned a surprise birthday gift with for her. Because we work at PCC, we get special discounts to a few places one of which is Sea Life Park. We planned to take Kapua there to spend her birthday, she not knowing that she would get to swim with the dolphins. Because it was her birthday, she got to participate in a dolphin encounter for free! What a deal...a totally free birthday. We didn't tell her anything and she didn't even suspect anything even as she was in the waiting room...we finally told her and her face was priceless. She was so excited! This was a birthday she will never forget!

This is actually a Wholphin (Mom is a dolphin and dad is a false killer whale) named Kekaimalu.

Kekaimalu was an accident, not a science project.

He is so BIG!
