What an amazing weekend celebrating Meg and Jon! Great times with great people.
We spent Thanksgiving and Grandpa T’s birthday in Elizabeth with the Trost family, and we also got to spend some time with Brodie. Grandpa and Brodie are two peas in a pod, and we put together this little video to show Brodie getting Grandpa with one of the oldest tricks in the book.
I may never get to experience a World Series parade on the north side of Chicago, so when the Giants scheduled their parade for Halloween this year, I tagged along with thousands of fans. Packed 10 people deep from the parade itself, it was hard to see much of anything, but I took some timelapse stuff with my phone to watch the various players, coaches and owners fly by. Might never see a parade with blue, white and red, so black and orange will have to do for now.
In honor of Matt Cain sealing the deal in Game 7 against the Cardinals, I wanted to rewind and remember the perfect game he threw earlier in the year. What a great run for Matt Cain and the Giants – and I couldn’t be happier they were able to eliminate St. Louis.
The Very Best came through San Francisco on their latest tour, and we were able to catch them at The Mezzanine. They always put on an energetic show, and I captured some quick timelapse footage with my iPhone and strung it together with their hit song, Julia – which they played within the first 2 or 3 songs of their set.
On July 3, 2012, we planned to have dinner at The Galley for what Julia thought was a typical evening with her parents and brother. After telling her I’d like to do a sunset photo project prior to dinner, we got ready early and went to the beach by the restaurant. Once I set up the camera and clicked on the timer, it was officially time to ask the big question. As an additional surprise, my parents, brother and his wife were waiting in the restaurant bar to join us for the post-proposal celebration. The next day, we capped off the celebration with a July 4th lobster dinner at home.
I put together a quick video on my iPhone to incorporate the photos of the actual proposal.
