Two Years Ago Today....
|Right after our Sealing, March 16, 2012|
This year for our anniversary things were a little more.....
But, we decided to make the best of things anyway.
Our anniversary is on March 16th which was a Sunday, so we decided to make a weekend out of it and get a hotel room for Friday night and spend Saturday at the beach.
Sounds fun, right?! And it was...most of it at least.
We rented a hotel room in Solana Beach which is an affluent area just north of where we are living in San Diego. The hotel room was really nice and was just across the street from the beach. There was a pool and a spa and we had a nice BIG king-sized bed. GOOD THING because even though Nathan had his Pack and Play to sleep in he ended up sleeping in the bed with us from about 1:00 am on. And he was up about once every hour for some odd reason as well.
Suuper romantic, huh?
But that was really the ONLY bad part. Honestly.
Friday evening we got to our hotel and unpacked and went to a really yummy Thai restaurant and walked on the beach.
Saturday morning although fatigued and a little annoyed at our sweet son we got up and ate a pretty bangin breakfast (which the hotel provided so that was awesome) and went back down to the beach.
I found this awesome tent at Costco for our beach trips this summer. Under normal childless circumstances I really enjoy the laying-in-the-sun-and-becoming-a-dancing-California-raisin kind of life. But since i'm a mom now I will now enjoy the sitting-under-the-shade-so-my-very-pale-son-doesn't-get-skin-cancer-before-he-is-one kind of life. I'm cool with it.
(Anyway, I highly recommend this tent. You seriously pull a string to set it up and take it down and it is no heavier or bulkier than a beach umbrella to carry)
|How could I ever really be mad at that face?!|
|I love seeing them together. It just makes my heart want to burst out of my chest with joy (also I love Cameron's freckled arms so much and I hope Nathan has them when he gets bigger)|
|Poor kid got my chubby toes. Sorry, buddy! At least they're cute for now!|
|Toes in the sand|
I love this picture that Cameron took. It's so sweet. The only thing I DON'T like is that you can tell in this picture that Cameron and I pretty much have the same-sized feet. EMBAAAAARRASSING!
It has been such a crazy year. Cameron and I were talking over dinner about our favorite moments that happened over this last year. Cameron said, "when we found out you were pregnant, that was pretty cool." Yes, indeed, that was pretty cool. It actually ended up that we really couldn't think of many things that happened during our second year of marriage that DIDN'T have to do with our little peanut. I found out I was pregnant last May and since then we've been preparing, planning, thinking, talking about, having, and taking care of this little guy!! It has definitely been the "Year of the Baby."
We are so blessed. I love our little family so much. I am so grateful to have this wonderful man by my side through all of the ups and downs and ins and outs of this earth life. I am grateful to have someone who is always stable, level-headed, and calm. I am grateful for a husband who tells me that everything is going to be OK as many times as my over-thinking, anxious, crazy-pants self needs to hear it. I am especially grateful for the covenants we have made and that I know for certain:
HE'S STUCK WITH ME FOREVER :)
