Welcome to Maui Party

Instead of a "Rehearsal Dinner" Aaron's parents hosted a "Welcome to Maui Dinner" as there was no rehearsal. Everyone who came to the island was invited and it was a lot of fun. Except for when I got stung by a wasp. THAT was more than not fun, that was excruciating. 

We had the dinner at a friends restaurant in Kihei- Matteo's -and it was fabulous!

Raina came by to comfort me, I cry and hold a napkin filled with ice to the sting and my sister is behind me laughing!

Larry's speech
Aaron's dad's amazingly sweet speech.

We got a cake for Aaron's parents 40th wedding anniversary!!!

At the end of the night our friends came together and read the haikus they had written about us. The haikus were inspired by the fact that "Megan and Aaron" is five syllables.

I can't remember any of them at the moment so I will write another blog about the haikus later. But the one I do remember is this:

Amazing. And so was the entire party. We had a great time and great food and even greater company. And it helped set the tone for an awesome wedding.

oops, i mean
