Cinco de Mayo super moon

Austin and I knew for a few weeks that on the night of Cinco de Mayo that there was going to be a super moon (don't know what that is? Watch this 3 minute video here for the details). Anyway the moon was going to be really cool. So we packed Maisie and her sweet new wagon (early birthday gift that assisted us during our move) and planned to head to the beach, have a bonfire, watch the sunset and the super moon rise. Well, that's not exactly what ended up happening, but oh well. It seemed like every one had the same idea (I don't think it being Cinco de Mayo helped at all) but all the fire pits were claimed for. So we made our way to the boardwalk where we decided to get some chowder and snuggle up on a bench to watch the show. We were keeping a look out when I looked up from my bread bowl full of steamy chowder and there in the misty distance, was the moon. It was almost creepy how faded it was, yet so huge and distinct. We watched in awe as the light pink moon went from a deeper reddish hue, to yellow and finally to white. As the moon rose it got dramatically smaller, but was still so bright. It started to get chilly and Maisie was bundled up in all our blankets so we made our way home, but not before we took a few photos of course.

  3. Another bonus of Custom Software generation is the company's flexibility.

    Adobe Corporation online shops these features to win over
    users with QuarkXPress toward shift that will InDesign. Don't
    set aside our thought for exactly how easy our very own time billing software is going to be to depend on.
