We participated in the obligatory luau one evening. We probably could have dug around and found something a little more authentic, but we stumbled upon one that promised live music, fire dancing, and FOOD... All the kid-pleasing basics. They started out the evening with a traditional island blessing that my little one took to heart:
Luckily, the food was served right away, and my boys were in HEAVEN. They made a couple of trips through the buffet and did some serious chowing down, as evidenced by the photo below:
Well, the music had barely begun to play, when I looked over and saw this:
Mind you, he was sitting in the front row, with flaming torches, banging drums and scantily clad women right overhead.
I guess I shouldn't have been surprised, as this is the kid that ate a HUGE steak dinner in NYC, then proceeded to sleep through the entire performance of The Lion King (guess those Orchestra seats were plenty comfortable).
So it was back to the beach the next morning, for more clear water, colorful fish, and pristine coral... All of which, I am happy to say, he was awake to witness!
As always, this entrancing tale was made possible by MamaGeek and Cecily, the goddesses who created this mind-expanding exercise we fondly refer to as... Photo Story Friday.
