We made our way back home a few hours later and so I could get things going for the evening while my love went to the gym.
We had dinner plans with a few friends out on the North Shore and of course I had to make some goodies to take with as well. On the list to make was Two Cheese Rosemary Mash Potato's, 2 Steaks & Cupcakes. I was baking away in the kitchen getting every thing prepped and ready. It was going to be a fabulous night.
Gigi & I ~ I love this kiddo!!!!!!!
Finally dinner was ready and it was time to eat, it was like Thanksgiving again with all the different food options that was there. And there was only 5 couples but let me tell you by time the night was over there wasn't hardly anything left at all. Not to mention the cupcakes went like hot cakes. DELICIOUS if I do say so myself!!!!!!!!
After dinner we walked down to the beach to set off a few of our own fire works. (ok, sparklers maybe. seeings fire works are illegal here in Hawaii for whatever reason.)
It was so nice to be able to spend the holiday with my husband here with me. I have missed celebrating holidays with him. The past year has been great celebrating with my army family, its just the icing on the cupcake when he is here to join in. We have some amazing friends here on island and are so blessed to be able to enjoy days / evenings like tonight with them. I couldn't ask for a more perfect life, everything is blissfully in the Gabriel's world.
HAPPY 4th Of July!!!!!!!!!
