Sunny Saturday

Our weather right now is back to cool & cloudy, but we had a gorgeous day on Saturday! It was warm and sunny, and we decided we needed to get out and enjoy it! There were sailboat races being held on the Neva River, right in front of the Peter and Paul Fortress, so we joined the other sunbathers on the beach there to soak up some sun and enjoy it.

Celebrating 10 Years

Ten wonderful years of marriage- it's hard to believe! Our anniversary is actually on July 10th, but we wanted to do something special before baby arrives. Aaron planned a very nice evening for us last night, starting with dinner at the restaurant "лев," which means "lion."

Inside the restaurant:

Then we went to the Marinsky Concert Hall to see a famous conductor, Gergiev, directing some of Beethoven's music. They performed scenes from the opera "Fidelio," and also the 5th symphony. It was amazing! We had good seats, too:

Do we look excited?

Me, feeling a little silly while Aaron took my photo with a picture of the conductor:
