Circus, Anniversary, Noriega Wedding, Matt's Birthday

Well our 4th wedding anniversary was on Thursday. How the time has flown by!
We ended up taking Giada to the circus that night - romantic don't you think!
Anyway we had a great time. Kiali and Noelle joined us and the girls seemed to enjoy themselves, with the animals being the highlight of course! Ignore the blurriness of a few of the photos. It took me awhile to realize that there was cotton candy smudged onto the lens!! Wonder who did that?? She is obsessed with wanting to hold the camera herself!

Elephants were my favorite!

Then we were off to Carmel for Chris/Lauren's wedding and to celebrate our anniversary. The weather was beautiful and it was SO much fun catching up with all our friends. Mike and I did sneak away to have dinner Friday night at the Sardine Factory in Monterey. It was great food, but kind of weird atmosphere. The table of people next to you were SO close. But a nice dinner out none the less. The wedding was beautiful and a good time was had by all!
Mr. and Mrs. Noriega

Cocktail Hour- Words and photos can't describe this place. The setting was beautiful on top of a mountain. There were deer and wild turkeys roaming free. They didn't seem to care we were there sharing the beautiful scenery.

Amazing Barn
Sealed with a kiss! At the end of the night Chris and Lauren got on stage and were
rocking out with the band! So fun!
Too funny! When Lauren threw the bouquet....
It got stuck in the chandelier..... classic! Nice toss Lauren!

We were honored that they chose to use Calivirgin EVOO as their wedding favor. Lauren's vision turned out beautiful- thank you for making us a part of your special day!

And while we were at the wedding Giada made it to the Grape Festival!
Looks like fun at the petting zoo with Nonno to me!

Then when we got home Sunday night we went to my parents for dinner and to celebrate my brothers 27th birthday! Happy Birthday Matthew!

Jules, you've inspired me to start a family blog too. I can't believe Matt is 27! Happy Bday to him and Happy Anniversary to you and Mike!
