AnnieVinhsary Weekend!

For the actual AnnieVinhsary day post, click [here].

I already wrote about going to BJs for dinner. Afterwards, Vinh & I rested a bit at home & then went out to play with sparklers at around 11pm at night.

Vinh wanted to take me on a picnic somewhere new & one of his coworkers at his internship site suggested De Valles Park/Lake in Livermore. It took us about an hour to get there, but it was a lovely day out. We drove to the wrong side of the park first & then headed back toward the "beach" area where the kayak rentals were. We setup our area in the grass & ate our food: egg sandwich [with a little soy sauce], fresh raspberries & juice.

Our yummy lunch!

Afterwards, we tried to play a little Pokemon double battling, but we didn't have our mojo on & kept losing, haha. We also tried to play badminton, but the area was too windy. It was hilarious how it went down though because when we thought there was wind, we'd hit harder & then there was no wind so the birdie flew hella far, haha. After that, we decided to pack up our stuff so that we can walk around the area. It was lovely out & the water in the lake was warm.

After walking around, we went home & took a nap because we didn't sleep well the night before. Then we basically just hung out at home, ate dinner & then went outside to play with sparklers again. All in all, it was a very relaxing anniversary this year since Vinh is interning.

We made our heart finally!
