I wrote about it before, but I had worked on a pretty large fireworks show for the 4th of July. This is just to hammer home the point that it was a big show. This is a 10-inch shell. It is essentially filled with explosives, and it only has one purpose: to explode into pretty colors and patterns. It is also quite intimidating when you have to load these particular big boys. You can feel them in your chest when they go off, but damn are they impressive as hell.
This is me and brother in law right before the show. Just looking like macho men and ready to do some clean-up after the show. It ended up being a very long day.
Ana has learned new skills. She is actually crawling now. I can't turn my back on her at all because she is all over the place. This is one of her many skills. She is constantly climbing on things. Here she is trying to entertain her sister. She rocks Grace and tries to drool all over Grace's feet. Grace seems to get a kick out of it too.
We went to San Francisco over the holiday weekend. We took the girls to Market Square and all around the city. Ana got pretty tuckered out and slept on my back. Pretty adorable if I may say so myself.
My gift idea for Erin was pretty clever, but I couldn't do it since apparently we can't afford big gifts anymore. I thought I was pretty clever to do the KitchenAid with multiple flours thing. The whole theme for year four anniversary gifts is flowers and fruit. Erin made me chocolate-covered strawberries. I thought I had the flower thing covered.
We went to a nice restaurant for our anniversary. We got a babysitter and everything. I enjoyed some fantastic wine and Erin got to drink cosmos which is her favorite adult beverage. The food was great and the time spent with my wife was fantastic. You'll notice the book in the background of our drinks. That is a book that I bought for us to keep track of our life story together. We write in it for each of our anniversaries and any big events in our life.
I have some more pictures, but they're going to be apart of their own post later this week. Thanks for reading.
