Ben's Birthday!

I know, I've been a horrible blogger lately!  However this next post is a fun one, because it's all about Ben's 28th birthday!

Ben turned 28 this weekend and we celebrated with cake, sparklers and champagne, then headed out to see the BBC orchestra perform and ended the night at the fancy Le Gallios restaurant.  We couldn't get the camera off video mode until dinner, so enjoy the videos!

Ben's sparkler cake:

The thunderous applause after the first performance:

And finally off video mode, here we are enjoying dinner and drinks at Le Gallios:

Happy birthday to Ben!

Happy New Year!!!

OK, a little late on the New Year's post, but not too many pictures to share, for once I wasn't very snap happy!

I started the night out at Imogen's for champagne and appetizers (or starters as they are called in the UK).  Here is Imogen opening up a bottle of champagne:

then we headed into town to watch the fireworks at midnight.  You may recognize the ferris wheel in the background from a previous post when Ben and I took a spin:

These photos are my attempt to capture the fireworks going off:

And here is a shot of Imogen taking pictures and Christian with the half of Katie's face out of the shot, sorry Katie!

after the fireworks were done we ended the night and headed home.  
A nice start to 2011 :)
