Random Cows, Horseback Riding, and Polynesian Culture!

We have also seen numerous chickens all over the island. Today, we even saw one cross the road!

The little island is called China Man's Hat.
This ranch is the location of the filming of the movie Jurassic Park.








Avery found a coconut laying in the road...he couldnt get it open though.
We swam in some pretty big waves...Avery LOVED it! I thought it was a bit scary!
At the Polynesian Culture Center we learned about 6 different cultures...
Hawaiian...
Tongan...
Tahiti...
Maori...
Samoan...
Fijian...
I will write more about the PCC in another post because I have somethings to say about it, but for now pictures will have to do!
Fresh flower lays and trying to learn to hang loose...
Kalua pig...
Hula dance...
Horizons show...
A new Ukulele...

Tonight we went to the Christmas Eve service at the First Presbyterian Church. I've never seen so many pairs of flip flops at church before. They even had a hula dance in the service that accompanied a Hawaiian Christmas song. Interesting!

Mele Kalikimaka!
Merry Christmas!
