Answer

In the first diagram I wanted to play Ne5 followed by g4 Bxf6 and g5, but after looking at the second diagram it looks like 1. Bxf6, Nxf6 2. g4, Bd6 3. g5 Ne4, 4. h5 Qe7. Or maybe a slightly different move order.

Second diagram: Well my first thought is all of our aggressiveness has not caused black to create a weakness around his king, so I need to force a weakness there. 1. g6 is met with fxg6 hxg6 and h6 locking the king side and 1. h6 gets g6 as a response and neither looks to lead to anything. 

So that led me to 1. Bxh7, Kxh7 2. g6+ Kg8 3. h6 crushing the whole king side
