We slept in a bit today, and started our day by driving to Koloa for lunch at the food truck courts. Daniel got a spicy green curry, and Catherine got curly fries with Kalua pork. It was very delicious. Afterwards, we looked at this memorial to the various immigrants that made the sugar industry possible, including the Hawaiians, the Anglo-Americans (called Caucasians on the plaque), the Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Koreans, and Filipinos.

Daniel's mom met us in Koloa after lunch (she and Daniel's dad and Hilary had been in Hanapepe) and drove to Kapaa so that she could buy a ukelele. Daniel had bought a cavaquinho (the Portuguese ancestor of the ukulele) in Porto, but had broken a string and wanted to get it replaced. The shop, Kauai Music and Sound, was excellent. Kate was able to get a tenor ukulele, and Daniel got his string replaced and some advice about how to tune and play the instrument. Also, we had been dreading the traffic that seems to haunt the island on the weekdays, but on the weekend our road to Kapaa from Koloa was perfectly clear. Catherine thought we looked like a troupe of wandering minstrels.

After this, we headed back to Koloa/ Poipu to get ready for the party. Daniel's parents were hosting the entire family at their house, and Hilary had set up for a photographer to come and take professional portraits of the family.

We took a lot of pictures right outside the house, then walked down to Shipwreck Beach to take some near the ocean.

Catherine with Aubrey. Daniel found a tree with pink plumerias to give to Catherine, Kate, Hilary, and Aubrey for the ocean pictures.

There was a ping-pong table in our garage, and so we had chairs around the garage and people were able to play ping-pong during the party. It was a lot of fun, and we think everyone enjoyed the party.
