5th anniversary


The big 5!  Shawn and I decided for our anniversary to go up north alone.  We originally planned to head back to Williams, AZ, which we hope to go back sometime, but instead wanted something more laid back.  It was nice to spend the weekend alone.  Even though my heart literally ached for our babies a little time out for just us is always necessary.  We headed up Friday after dropping the girls off at school.  The drive up was nice and very green.  We didn’t do much; napped, watched movies, sat outside enjoying the mountain air and some fishing of course.
We caught a total of 6 fish!  It made the trip so much more fun!  Abby enjoyed the lake also.

Huge portions.

We saw lots of wild life…
IMG_5875Driving through the neighborhood we spotted several javelinas.  Notice they are eating piles of food?!  We weren’t sure if this food was intended for these mean and nasty animals but they definitely indulged.
Shawn also spotted deer in the backyard.  They hung out for awhile and it was really neat to watch them. 
We got several pictures and a video from Nana and Papa which made my heart complete for a few minutes then I missed them like crazy again.
Side note:  Shawn posted the sweetest message for me that I will include here to never forget those words.  They brought tears to my eyes.  He’s simply amazing!
To my wife,
Today marks 5 years of marriage to you.  On that day I made the best decision in my life by making you my wife.  You ground me and drive me to be successful in all aspects of life.  You’ve made me a father, a husband and a better man.  All the happiness in my life I owe to you.  The love I have for you is much more than just a feeling.  It’s who I am, It’s part of my soul.  Happy Anniversary, Shannon!  I love you!
