One of the highlights of Hawaii for all of us was the Polynesian Cultural Center. Here was a canoe ride that we took later in the day. The guy that led Ryan and I's canoe said that 90% of the people who work at the PCC are students at BYU-Hawaii. Don't quote him on that, he was guessing.
Mary at the luau. We got our own leis. I think this might have been my first "real" lei and real luau. Even with this being my third time to Hawaii. It was a highlight for me too.

Notice Luke's kikui nut bracelet he made.
Mary was buying a drink from these guys and Ryan asked for a picture. Luke then ran up and grabbed himself a drink to pose for the picture and had everyone in sight laughing.
This is the canoe parade with each of the islands represented.
One of our favorite islands to visit was Samoa. The guy who leads the show is really funny. And this is the guy that climbed the coconut tree to grab a coconut for him.
Here he is climbing from a distance.

Waiting for food.
Luke caught up on sleep for a few minutes.
Another favorite island to visit was Tonga where they had the drum show. We also stayed for the evening performance and we were in awe of the firedancing. That was the crowd pleaser for the night. Unfortunately, no pictures are allowed in there.
