Alooooha! We’re FINALLY here. After some much needed hula lessons, and some other posts about my family vacation to Hawaii, we’re moving on in the most long-winded recounting of a week-long vacation (read the rest here) to the super awesome LUAU — in THREE parts!
Part I – the introduction to the gorgeous Grand Wailea Resort, some surroundings and the unveiling of the pig (mmm, dinner).
Since we had wristbands that got us in early, we were hanging out for a long time before the rest of the audience got drinks and got seated. Once that happened though, it was time to dig up the pig!! (Beware — piggy guts pictures ahead!)
I wish I could insert smell-o-vision into this post so you could smell the intense, hazy, wood-piggy smell that erupted from the ground as they were digging up and uncovering the pig. Holy moly! So yummy.
And, because I’ve been a little video-happy lately, and actually remembered to record things on vacation (just wait til I get to the SHOW part of the luau), here’s a video of the full piggy unveiling:
