This past week has been a ton of fun having my little brother Tanner visiting us. We've taken him surfing, snorkeling, hiking, gone to the beach, and done some spear fishing. The day we went spear fishing I stayed on the beach to finish reading "The Host" by Stephenie Meyer. I also took pictures of all the turtles hanging around. Devin caught a fish called nui nui. I don't know if that how it's spelled, but our neighbor from Fiji said that's what it's called. We cooked it up with some lemon pepper and it was delcious...better than salmon for sure. While they were spear fishing Tanner dropped his spear accidentally about 4o feet deep and somehow Devin was able to dive down and retrieve it. I didn't know I was married to someone with fish gills.

We started Independence Day at Sunset Beach. The guys all surfed at Cami's and we brought a couple kites to play with. After the beach we had a barbeque at Katie & Brent's house. I bought Devin and I a huge steak to grill. Then we went to watch the fireworks at the Turtle Bay Resort...and we did it in style!!! We paddled out at a surf spot and watched the fireworks from the water! After the fireworks show we surfed for a while and then went in the Resort's pool to swim. Then we went back to Katie's and played with fireworks. Devin and I agree that this was by far the best 4th of July ever!!!

On Saturday for my birthday Devin had a surprise party planned for me at The Cheesecake Factory in Waikiki. We had spent the day at the beach and shopping and then we met up with some friends for dinner. I had no idea...I was completely surprised!!! It was so exciting! Dinner was great and I had a chocolate shake and a fresh strawberry cheesecake. It was such a great birthday, I felt so loved!
