Anniversary, Santa Rosa, Silverado!

We're winding down from a busy five days that consisted of our two year anniversary, visiting my side of the family in Santa Rosa, and then heading to Silverado for Darcy's company trip. I'll recap in chronological order.

On September 24th, 2005, I took Darcy out to dinner in downtown Saratoga at La Fondue with an engagement ring buried in my pocket. After the waitress greeted us I excused myself from the table and chased her down. I asked her to plant the ring in Darcy's wine glass and then leave without pouring so I could wait for Darcy to notice the ring and then pop the question. Nearly a year after the engagement, we married on September 16th, 2006, and are now starting our third year as a married couple. Our "dating" anniversary is also in September (23rd). We started in 2000 so have now been a couple for 8 years! Time flies.

I also came home with flowers on Tuesday.

I took Thursday and Friday off of work to head to Santa Rosa. It was Sean's first trip to my hometown and the first time that much of my extended family would get to see him. Thursday morning we went to my grandparents house (dad's side), then to my Aunt Alice's house (dad's sister), and then to my cousin Aimee's house. Aimee had just given birth on September 13th to her third daughter Mae so we got a picture of the two babies together. Sean looks huge next to Mae!

Here is my Nonni and Nonno with Sean. They just adored seeing their first great-grandchild for the first time:

In the evening my Grammie (mom's mom) came by to see Sean for the first time.

Mid-day on Friday we left Sean with my parents and headed to Napa for our sixth company trip. The trip consists of dinner events on Friday and Saturday night, and for those who choose (which we do), golf during the day on Saturday. Silverado is a beautiful course but not overly difficult, which helps the scoring. My team played well but didn't make enough birdie putts. We did get an eagle though, but finished only at -5 (3 birdies, 1 eagle, 0 bogeys). The winner was -7. My team had a great time though. Notice the one guy who played the whole round barefoot, claiming he "hates wearing shoes".

Sunday we hurried back to Santa Rosa to see our boy. He keeps getting bigger, stronger, and cuter.
