10 yrs

Shaun and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary last night. I can't believe that it has been 10 years. When I got home from work, there were flowers, a drawing from Sydney and a gift certificate to Anniversary Inn (I have always wanted to go there). Shaun got a pair of new binoculars (he picked them out last month so he could use them hunting). We took the kids to TexasRoad house for dinner, it was their 2 year anniversary in being open in Logan so they were giving away prizes. We all got to pick one, we got a free party platter, free dessert, free loaded fries, and free appitizer. So we will for sure be going back to use them. The kids loved going there, it was there first time to go. Sydney decided that is where she wants to go for her birthday dinner so she can sit on the saddle.

10 years ago, 9/11 had just happened and Shaun was nervous about flying to California for our honeymoon. I remember telling him too bad we are going, right now is the safest to fly because the security was so tight. We had a blast at Disneyland and loved every minute of it. It wasn't crowded at all (wonder why?). We had rented a little 1 bedroom house in Smithfield. I loved living there. We had bought an old house built in 1928 right before we got married and was going to fix it up. So right after our honeymoon we started on renovating our current house that we live in today. After 2 years (almost to the day) we moved in. I would prefer not to have to do that again. Just buy new or already in great condition, it was very stressful. Now, 8 years later we are finishing the upstairs because we have outgrown the downstairs.

We have 3 great kids that we wouldn't trade for the world (well most of the time). Sydney is 7, Shelby is 4, and Preston is 2. Couldn't ask for better kids to put up with us as parents.
