Paul and I celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary this past Tuesday, June 11th. It’s hard to believe we’ve been married for 19 years, and I am blessed beyond words that the Lord brought us together.
I dropped the kids off at my parents house on Monday night, and they brought them back on Thursday afternoon. So Paul and I had two days and three nights all to ourselves. The kids love spending our anniversary weekend with my parents, and my parents love having them, but we all knew that this would probably be the last time we do it this way. Actually, they are more than old enough to stay home by themselves, but they wanted one last time. Next year will be our 20th. Paul and I are hoping to be able to go away somewhere while the kids stay home. Guess we’ll see what happens next year. 😉
Here are some pictures of our weekend.
Honestly, I think this is the best photo ever of our two lovely children. This was right before we left to take them to my parents house. Sarah doesn’t like that her younger brother is now taller than her. 😉
I love the smiles on both the kids and my mom. The kids love hanging with my mom and dad. I don’t know how I forgot to get a picture of them with my dad. 🙁 Next time.
Honestly I can’t believe I’m putting this one out there, but I was taking a self portrait on our first night. I should have just pulled the tripod out. lol
This was our anniversary meal. My hubby is great with the grill. The steaks were so good.
On our second day we decided to get in a time of shooting. It had been too windy the day before, and on this day it turned out we only had about a 45 minute window to shoot. After that the wind and rain came in. But we did find a nice spot in the mountains to shoot, and had such a good time. We hope to go more throughout the summer. It is really something we all enjoy doing.
Here is hubby getting ready to pull out the guns.
I love going up in the mountains to shoot.
It was a great weekend for all of us. I always feel like once we’ve celebrated our anniversary summer vacation really starts. We have nothing major scheduled for the next month or so. Just some fun times of shooting, hanging with the family and enjoying the weather. Yep, I really like summer break. 😀
