After celebrating the 100th anniversary of Rainbow Bridge, Helen and I are ready to celebrate a more modest milestone this week - our one year wedding anniversary! It's been a great year for both of us. The economic downturn couldn't have come at a better time - all of my fancy trips overseas did not happen this year. I got to stay in the United States and be with my sweetie! Thank you greedy-housing-bubble-aficianados! Here are few pictures of our year.
A picture from our wedding day at "Ranney Point" on Grand Canyon's South Rim. The flowers Helen picked on the way to the wedding and the heart rock is from the Mt. Everest Base Camp where I proposed to her.
Our pre-wedding parties overlapped for one night in San Diego. My friends gave me the best bachelor party I could ever hope for - a one week road trip through the Southwest!
On our honeymoon at the El Tovar. We had the Presidential Suite which was unbelievable!
