A Family Luau

Happy Friday to you. This week our two daughters, sil's and grands threw a party for hubby. It was a combination Father's Day and Birthday and the theme was his favorite foods when we are in Kauai. They went over the top with preparation and spared no expense. It was such a blessing to see my hubby honored this way.  Such a blessing to see the creativity and love of our family poured out.
The entry was decked out perfectly.

Two cousins celebrating too.
The Hostess's with the mostest.

The dinner menu consisted of Yellow Fin Ahi tacos.  A staple when we are in the islands.

Kim made all the sushi and even made Yellow Fin Sushi.  A first for her; they do make vegetable sushi on a regular basis, but this was her first using raw fish.
Chicken for the kiddos and grilled pineapple.
This was a new fish for me to try-raw Salmon Poke.  It was so good!
Hunter on alert.

The family enjoying a beautiful summer evening. Most of the kids were playing on the tramp or the zip line.
The girls have been talking about having a luau for years and I'm so glad it finally came together.
We also came home with leftovers, which we enjoyed last night.
Today I have an annual eye exam and then will spend the day packing and grocery shopping.  We are also having some friends over for a simple dinner tonight-probably taco salad.
I hope you have a great day.  Don't know how often I will be posting next week-hopefully a lot from the quilt show.
