Celebration Time!

We had such a fun night last night.  Our friend, Niki, had recently passed the bar (which was a feat considering she has two kids under 2 1/2 years) and received her first job.  So they invited us out to Benihana at the last minute to celebrate! 

The kids started out with Shirley Temples.

And then tried on their nifty chef hats!
(the last one was taken at the perfect second as he would not leave his hat on!)

Lallie was absolutely stunned during the habachi portion or our meal.  The check made a volcano out of onions and the pushed it around with a piece of zuchinni like a choo-choo train.  He then threw his utensils, made music and flipped food up in the air.  Since cooking is a rare thing in our house, Lallie was looking a little like: "What the heck is this he is doing with the food and why does he think it's funny?"  (sorry for the bad resolution, I had to make some adjustments because it was dark).

Lallie ate her first piece of sushi (well, two bites, but hey, not bad!)

After dinner, we went down on the beach for some sunset playtime.

The happy couple and newly employed attorney!!! Woot Woot!!

Of course, it's pink and green Thursday, so aren't Husband and I adorable in our pink and green???  We didn't plan that either!

Happy Thursday Y'all
