First Anniversary!

May 12, 2008

Almost lost in all of the excitement of April was the fact that my beautiful wife and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary! Yes, it’s hard to believe it’s only been a year since the big day. Since we’re not quite ready to leave our baby to go out on the town to party, we just stayed at home and Debbie cooked a fabulous dinner. We were brave enough to sample the wedding cake we have been saving in our freezer all year:

Surprisingly, it was still pretty tasty even after a year in the deep freeze. Unfortunately, I don’t think the same can be said for Debbie’s Bouquet, which has been hanging up drying out for the past year:

And since we never did get to eat any of the chocolate peanut butter section of our wedding cake, Debbie got us an anniversary cake from the same bakery (and I replaced her flowers with some new roses):

For those of you who missed the pictures from a year ago here is a link to the pictures I took:

And here is a link to the professional photos for anyone who has the free time to go through all 1153 of them!

Finally I want to thank Debbie for being the best wife (and mother!) ever! Thank you for such a great year and for the next 80 to come!


The honeymoon’s over…

September 21, 2007

…but boy was it great! After a long stress-filled summer following the wedding, we finally managed to escape to Fiji. We left from LAX and after about 10 hours in the air landed in Nadi at 5:30am. We spent the first four nights on Sonaisali Island, then four more nights on Malolo Island. It was a fantastic vacation and the perfect way to relax.

I know that some of you don’t posses the same patience for photos that I do, so for you we have a link to the brief version of the trip:

Finally, I apologize for the lack of new posts recently, but that is about to change in a big way.

Stay tuned…..

Ok, I know you all have been waiting for this all month. Unfortunately we’ve been a little busy here so I haven’t had time to post the links. But the wait is over!

Here is the link to the official photographer’s pictures (Event code is “Debbie”; If it asks for a password it’s 1sn6zgz):

(If you want any prints from here let me know directly as our photographer can order them much cheaper than through this web site)

And here are some pictures my Dad posted:

Wedding Week – Saturday April 14th – This is it!

April 30, 2007


Ok, here are the pictures I took from the wedding.  Obviously I was a little busy, so I might have missed a few things, but here’s my perspective:


Wedding Week – Saturday April 14th – Morning

April 30, 2007


On Saturday as the girls headed over to the Salon for some pampering, the boys went down to shoot some stuff.  I want to thank the rest of the team for throwing their game so I could get the high score on my big day!


Wedding Week – Friday April 13th

April 30, 2007


One day to go!  We had the rehearsal at the zoo and then headed over to Ski Beach in Mission Bay for the rehearsal dinner.  A little pizza and beer from Oggis, a beautiful sunset, and then fireworks for those who stuck it out!


Wedding Week – Thursday April 12th

April 23, 2007


Ok, Thursday was a pretty calm day.  Lunch at the Red Robin with some folks from work so Dale could catch up with everyone, pick up the tuxes, out to La Jolla to catch the 15 foot waves the wind was kicking up, then a little dinner at On The Border.

Wedding Week – Wednesday April 11th

April 23, 2007

Brooke and Debbie

Well, I’ve got a lot to share, so I figured I’d take it one day at a time.  Our first big event of the wedding week was the Padres vs. San Francisco Giants game on Wednesday.   Several friends and family members had late afternoon flights, but everyone made it to the ballpark in time to see the game and boo Barry Bonds when he got up to bat.  And the Padres even managed to win!

Some pictures are posted at the link below:


Woo Hoo!
