Happy Birthday Taris!

We kept Taris' birthday a little low key this year.  Taris took the day off and went golfing, while I ran around trying to get some last minute stuff taken care of.  We gave gifts on Thursday, so that he could actually USE his gifts on his birthday.  We live in Ewa Beach and to say the least there are a TON of golf courses around us.  His parents and I bought rounds of golf to three different courses around our neighborhood.  (Have I mentioned how much I LOVE the Kama'aina rate...that means local in Hawaiian.)  As a bonus, the girls and I gave him surfing lessons and spear fishing lessons.  Taris played Ewa Beach Golf Club on Friday and then we used a Groupon for dinner at a restaurant in Waikiki...Padovani's.  The food was excellent and they recently let their liquor license lapse, so you could bring your own wine...great money saver!  We went to the movies and headed home.  It was a very full day.  We had a great time just celebrating with the two of us.
