Dinner and some Fireworks

Brian and I wanted to go out to eat one Friday night in June and decided that Austin would probably like to go to a Japanese Steak House. If you haven't been to one, it's where they sit you down at a table with a habachi grill in the middle and the chef cooks the food right in front of you....and they are very entertaining as well.

We tried to go Benihana's at the Hilton Hawaiian, but they were REALLY busy and couldnt' get us in until after 8pm!!! So, we went around the corner to Kobe's. The dinner was really good...and Austin LOVED the onion volcano that shoots fire and he CHOWED down on his steak!

After dinner, we walked back to the Hilton Hawaiian's beach and waited for their weekly fireworks they do. It's not a huge show, but we figured we'd see how Austin reacted to fireworks before 4th of July. They started the fireworks and he just stood and stared, then climbed into my lap and buried his face saying they were too loud. I told him he could just cover his ears with his hands so he could still see them. So, that's what he did and it worked really well. He thought they were pretty, but loud. :-)

Here are a couple of pictures of Brian and Austin waiting on the beach....
