A Perfect Anniversary

Last weekend was our sixth wedding anniversary.  The weekend before was Kenny's 30th birthday.  Both weekends were wonderful, but since I don't yet have pictures yet of Kenny's last-minute-but-still-awesome-party, here's some photos of our anniversary.  It pretty much was the perfect weekend...

It started Friday night with a trip with friends to the LACMA to watch Le Cercle Rouge, a French crime film from the 70's (which was rad) followed by a late night dinner at Mel's.  (My pictures from this night are kind of horrible and blurry, but oh well.)

Erin, Kenny, and Adam.  Erin works at LACMA; how cool is that?
Elise and me and a whole bunch of street lamps.
The crew, post movie, pre dinner.  Very Hungry.

The next morning Kenny and I decided to head to Palm Springs so that we might do absolutely nothing (except read, nap, swim -  far away from the June-gloom that's been suffocating us in Orange County).  The fact that we stayed at this super private, very retro 50s, boutique hotel (The Horizon Hotel) was just icing on the cake.  Also, the fact that the hotel had eight guests total- adults only - was awesome, as was the little badminton set up and the private outdoor showers.  I LOVED it.  We left only once to get dinner (and to stock up on fruit and Klondike Bars for our mini fridge).

Some pool shots.  The weather was sunny and a comfortable 80-90 degrees.  


There were butterflies everywhere including on my knee.  I wasn't busy, so I let it hang out for a while.

Kenny's hair was in constant transition from bed-head to soaking wet to crazy, half-dried fro all weekend.  I loved it.

I also took Monday off and we went to Disney Land one more time before our passes are blocked for the summer.  More than the rides, I just needed a Dole Whip Float from the bar at the Tikki Room.  Disney Land was followed by a dinner and a movie and an early bedtime.  Like I said: the weekend was PERFECT.

Kenny, thank you for a marvelous weekend and six wonderful years.  I love you.
