Okay, I started to write about Ben's graduation celebration, but it was TOO MUCH!  This was the biggest party I've ever hosted, and when I think about writing one post about it, I'm overwhelmed and I quit.  So I'm going to break it down into bits and maybe I'll get it all done eventually.  

Ben's youth pastor when we lived in Kansas is amazingly also our youth pastor now that we live in Hawaii.  Ben and Kevin have a pretty tight bond since they have known each other for so many years.  As luck would have it, Kevin also is a master BBQer.  He actually teaches classes on how to grill and smoke your food.

 When he uncovered the pig all the kids went, "EW!"  Then they all stepped in for a closer look.

 They were mainly fascinated with the butt and found it hilarious.

 There were two chickens inside this pig!  We speculated that maybe that was how it died.  Eating two whole chickens will do that to you, you know.

 It looked like Carmen Miranda when they were done spiffing it up.
Chica Chica Boom Chic!

The guys were thrilled to feel like real hunter gatherer types!
Or at least pose in a picture like they were hunter gatherer types!

 Ben was particularly happy as he got to delve into the innards and serve it up to all his friends.

 That's it, WORK at your graduation party, boy!  Work!

Katie eventually wound up with its head on a platter (after Ben ate the tongue) but that's another story.
