|Our Wedding- 7/10/04|
Yesterday, on July 10th, eric and I celebrated our 7th anniversary. It doesn't seem real that it could possibly be seven years already since I walked down the aisle (or down the backyard....) and we said our vows.
What an amazing and crazy seven years it has been. We have definitely had our up and down moments, but have learned from each and every one of those moments we have shared together. We've had a few hard times during our short seven years, such as suffering a job loss, financial hardships, and the most difficult- a miscarriage. But... one thing is for certain and that is we held each others hand during those times, said a LOT of prayers & continuously asked God to show us His path, and worked together to make things better. When we think about all the blessings He has poured out to us though, those few hard times are nothing in comparison to how blessed we are. Three beautiful and happy children, a cozy home, and family and friends that are there for us no matter what, and of course- each other.
So how exactly do you spend your 7th anniversary when you have a 4 year old son, an almost 3 year old daughter, and another daughter that turned one the day before? You go to church, grab a quick sandwich, and then spend the rest of the beautiful Sunday afternoon tubing down the New River!
|Dad, Elsie & Jackson|
|Ansley Kate loved tubing and did great in the float all by herself for the full 3 hours!|
|Even though she doesn't look thrilled here, Elsie loved her first trip down the river and just wanted us to hold her in the water the whole time.|
|Jackson's ready to go!|
Okay, so maybe that's not everyone's ideal anniversary, but for us, it's exactly what we wanted to do. :) We did get my parents and sister to watch the kids though while we went out to dinner- just the two of us!
Do you know how much faster you can get in and out of the car without having to put 3 kids in carseats!
Happy 7th Anniversary, emc! I'm so glad you chose me to grow old with you. Love you!!!
