Fun in the SUN

We have been hitting the beach a lot lately. Bells loves to swim, well kick and dunk herself under the water. She even started to surf! She has a body board and the other day she stood up on it all by herself in the water and the walked across it and jumped off to me. It was the cutest thing ever, good thing our friend on shore had her video camera. We were messing around with the under water camera and even Bells went under but we missed the shot and didn't want to try again. Earlier in the week a group of us went hiking and ran into 5 Hawaiian Monk Seals and actually was chased out of our swim hole at the end of the hike from one of the fighting seals. Yep, he actually hopped, slip and swam about 200 yards across coral, rocks and water....just to make sure we got out of "his" swimming hole. It sure was crazy!

Oh Beautiful Hawaii

Hawaii is simply amazing and so beautiful!
We are truly so lucky to be living here.
I love going to sleep and waking up to the sound of waves crashing.
The birds chirping and of course the sun shining.
Here are just a few flowers that were picked on a walk.

Happy Happy Birthday Miah!

Happy Birthday to the Man in our Lives!!
That is you Jeremiah!!

We had a surprise party for Jeremiah, when he arrived home everybody was hiding in our apartment and we had his gift wrapped in a big red bow in the living room...
We went straight into a BBQ, he used his new grill we got him, he was so surprised and had such a good time. Of course I made him the best cake ever....hold on all you REESE Lovers
chocolate cake with peanut butter filling topped with chocolate peanut butter ganache!
The best thing he has ever had!
Then late at night him and the guys went night diving and speared some fish. The good times they always have with Joe night diving. What a great day!

July 4th Like No Other

We had so much fun on the 4th of July! There was a huge show and gathering at Turtle Bay with loads of fun activities. Everybody gathered and when I say everybody, I mean half the Island. You bring blankets, food, sparklers and lots of friends. All of our neighbors went together and each brought a dessert, so yummy! We had so much fun. Ellah loved the firework show, they were right above us and she held on tight to Mommy and Daddy. Good thing we had carved a watermelon and filled it with fruit because it took about an hour to get out of the parking lot and Kaiya and Bells were hungry so Grandma Terri fed them and boy did they eat. We love the holidays here, our neighbors are the best buds we could ask for!
