hau'oli la ho'omakika'i
this is where i spent thanksgiving morning:
on the beach in hawaii with nieces and nephews. not too shabby!
(my brother jonah lives on maui, so me and my brother noah and his family
hopped over there for thanksgiving)
after a little beach time, we headed home to jonah and aja’s house to prepare the feast:
jonah and noah had woken up at 4am to put the turkeys in the imu pit.
they cooked on top of puka puka rocks wrapped in banana leaves for nearly 12 hours!
isn’t jonah and aja’s garden neat? there have about 40 chickens and all kinds of fruit trees.
taking the turkeys out:
and dressing up to commemorate those great pilgrims and indians:
our spread: (and check out that stash of tropical fruit!)
we ate out on the newly constructed lanai (hawaiian deck):
and hooray for the pumpkin pie!
we had such a great, grateful day.
this year i am especially thankful to have family members that live in hawaii.
