It’s that time of the year again…the time I get to celebrate another year of happiness and joy with my beautiful wife Annie. This has been an extra special year because of Jerelle. Today marks our 3 Year Anniversary!!! =D This only brings up the question on what is this year’s gift? Let’s take a look at previous years…I’ve stuck with what the traditional gift is for each year:
Year 1 (Paper) – Surprise Airplane Tickets to Hawaii … If you ever wanted to know our story, watch the video in that link =)
Year 2 (Cotton) – Cotton Candy and Annual Pass to Disneyland
Year 3 (Leather) – ???, leather whip? Indiana Jones Hat?
Nope…none of that. This year we veered away from the traditional gift and got two MAJOR things. The first we’ve been playing with for the past couple of weeks now…yup, you guessed it, the new Canon 5D Mark III. It has taken a while to get used to, and there are still functions here and there that need to be learned, but from what we’ve experienced thus far, we are completely stoked!!!
The second has been a long time coming. We opted to get rid of the jungle of waist-high weeds in our backyard and get actual grass. I want to thank my co-worker Ed for introducing me to his brother Carlos and friend Celio. They did an amazing job with first clearing up all those weeds, secondly installing the new sprinkler system, and lastly installing all the grass. Jerelle now has his own personal ‘football field’ to play in.
In conclusion, Happy Hump Day everybody…time to start my 5 day weekend…I wanted to go up north to the Bay area, but Jerelle can’t handle that drive PLUS we need to be back Friday. So instead, we’re off to sunny San Diego for the next couple of days. =D Don’t be surprised if you see random posts on Facebook of Santana’s Cali burritos, extraordinary desserts, Shamu, yada yada yada. =p
