Tahiti, and Tonga, and Fiji, OH MY!

A couple of weeks ago (sorry about the late posting) Danny and I got to go to the Polynesian Cultural Center on his day off. He started working there 3 weeks ago and is already taking his own tour groups!! GO D!! It was nice to have my own personal tour guide for the day!! We went around to all the different villages which represent each island of Polynesia.  D says- polynesia comes from 2 Greek words; poly (meaning many) and nesia (meaning islands). Gosh darn he is full of fun facts! ;) Anywho, we had a great time. We learned how to throw spears Tongan style, weave a fish from coconut leaves, and even endured the pain of Fijian tattoos!!  We splurged on dinner and the night show to end our evening. Holy Moly that Kalua Pork is somethin' else!

I wanna see samoa that! (D's contribution to this post!)

(Whoooo! D almost won the spear throwing contest. I think he found a new calling!)

(our Tongan fishy)

(The Tahitian dancers were my fav. They could shake those booties somethin' fierce!)

(My tattoo meant queen! D thought it was fitting ;) )

  1. OK by the time you guys get back here I want to see Danny able to climb our palm tree and Emma doing the Tahitian booty dance!!! And I'll get the tat!!!

  2. We are so glad to see you guys enjoying your time in Hawaii...what a special place. Did you know that Michelle was one of the dancers for the canoe pagent shaking her hips when we were there? What fun memories!
