The Luau

I was so excited to find out I'd won a drawing at CJ's blog, dollsandprettythings. Four days later, Wayfarers Inn was ready to Go Hawaiian. They traveled in the Red Bag Express.

Yes, this bag is filled with little hard plastic dolls. I'm afraid to count them.
Everyone gathered at the beach hut.
Lily is holding a lei and Edward, having taken off his coat in an attempt to go native, is holding the scuba gear. There is a ukulele leaning against Lily's leg.

"Can I buy you a drink?" asks Geoffrey, hoping Goldie isn't watching.

Charlie, although she considers herself worldy wise, is a bit horrified at the skimpy bikini.

"I would never wear this in public!"
One of the new girls (not yet named) loves surfing.

Cassie admires the surfer girl. "Do you think I could do it?" she asks.
"It's easy!"
Food is the big attraction for many.

Mr. Philadelphia may have had a bit too much to drink.
On the far right, next to Mary Rose's hand, is a wee little can of macadamia nuts. To the left of that is a tropical drink with a slice of lime that has an umbrella on it. The red bag next to the center coke is actually a bag of coffee that had fallen over, as so many thing do around the Wayfarers. To the right of the right-hand coke, behind the fish, is a bottle of guava sauce. The hamburger on the left is from a vending machine that Auntie Berman found (it's where the cokes came from too).  I didn't have time to serve up the pig on a platter with an apple in his mouth. He is some sort of Lego pig, so if he's on his back he doesn't really look piglike.

"Will you teach me how to play golf, Reginald?"
This looks more like she's twirling a lasso, but there is a golf club handing from her hand. The golf ball is so tiny I left it in its package, in an attempt not to lose it.

Meanwhile, Edward and Lily have been talking.

"Lily, will you marry me?"

They announce their engagement to the happy onlookers.

"Lily has consented to be  my wife," says Edward happily.
And in case you're wondering about this and this and this, Edward decided not to tell Lily about his past. It would serve no useful purpose and, as Auntie Berman is so fond of saying, "They're dolls. They aren't real." So Lily will never know and will be much happier that way.

A good time was had by all.
After their wonderful day at the beach, an experience they would never forget, the Wayfarers packed into the Red Bag Express and went home. 

It was quite exhausting for me too, and I've had the Mele Kalikimaka song running through my head all day!


  1. What a fab themed party they had. I saw that you had won the Hawaiian give away, what a fun thing to win!

  2. Fortunately for the dollies I had an Hawaiian scene all set up and all we had to do was transfer some grass huts and hula girls to make this a stunning vacation!

  3. "Unknown" is Auntie Berman, who is having trouble logging on and commenting. Her Hawaiian scene includes penguins, but we left them out.

  4. That was adorable! I want to make the "will you marry me" photo my desktop background-- too cute!

  5. Now I'm committed to having a wedding for them. I think they'll have a long engagement!
