Our 6 year anniversary

Today was one of those days when I wish I had a video camera to capture just about every single minute.  I have those kind of moments just about every day, but was wonderful.

Randy and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary today, which, when we think about it is crazy, because it seems like the past six years has flown by in the blink of an eye or two.  This marks the first anniversary we'll celebrate with our family *complete*, all three kids taking part in celebrating their parent's happiness.  One of my dear friends told me that her children always joined in on the anniversary dinner or whatever other celebration they had.  It's a great way to show your kids just how important and special it is to celebrate their parent's love. 

Of course, taking time for just the two of us is important, but this year we chose to celebrate with the three people who have been so prominent in the first six years of our marriage.  Last night, I made a yummy dinner (so says the kids and especially Randy as well!), and we toasted our 6 years.  The kids were slightly confused, thinking we were getting married, and we began eating.  Raegan was napping soundly, so I was able to enjoy dinner to the fullest.  She woke up right near the end, as I was getting dessert ready (a girl after my own heart).  Dessert was so yummy, and even better, I was treated to about 8 hours of sleep from Raegan.

This morning, we headed up 'to the mountains'.  Brynn has been begging to go 'to the mountains' for quite some time.  I don't know what this little girl envisioned in her brain as 'to the mountains', but we aren't quite cut out for scaling any 14-er's any time soon.  Instead, we decided to head to Evergreen and have a picnic lunch near Lake Evergreen.  Here's some of our memories that I'll always take with me...

When we got home, we grilled burgers and ate al fresco.  The kids were angels, hysterical, and adorable.  I wish I could have captured the conversation on film so I could watch it all again years from now...when we have time to take a breath in between the madness of three young children. 

Who knows what the next 6 years will bring, but I couldn't imagine going through it all with anyone other than my sweetie!

Love you, babe!

  1. Loved this post and the pictures, (especially the "Keep this Gate Closed" one. Hysterical! An audio recording of your kids' conversations can be priceless. When they're in a talkative mood, try turning on an inconspicuous recording device. We have a couple of these, and they are treasures. (We didn't do this enough, and wish we had more!) Happy Anniversary!
