The night of Liz and Jordan’s wedding we had a family barbecue. Well, family and some very close family friends. A lot of the food was from Joe’s on the Green, where we had our wedding last year. Uncle Dee also picked up a lot of local favorites like lau lau, poke, poi, kalua pig and Chinese noodles.
Actually, a few people picked up poke. I think we had about 8 or 9 different ones to taste test! All of the food was so good. The lau lau that Uncle Dee brought from Da Imu Hut was getting rave reviews. Even the vegetarians ate it! For dessert we had cupcakes from Cakes by Kristin in Kapa’a.

We had some drinks and visited. It was all very relaxed. At one point Savannah and Jackson, Liz’s niece and nephew, went back to where they were staying to get their bathing suits and take a dip.
Looking through old family photos.
Just a sample of what we found: This is Caroline, Jordan, and Dallas!
We also spent a lot of time looking at old family photos that Aunty Kathy brought from Dallas’s grandma’s house. I have only seen maybe two photos of Dallas as a child so it was so fun to look through books and books of his childhood. And very good to spend time with the family looking through grandma and grandpa’s adventures. Dallas never realized how much they loved to travel together. It was nice to see them so young and happy and having some great adventures. I think it helped the family a lot.
