This weekend we celebrated both our 7th Anniversary and Father's Day on Sunday, June 20th!
7 years! Wow! Sometimes our wedding day seems like just yesterday- it was so fun and so perfect! And sometimes the life of newlyweds seems like forever ago!
We celebrated our Anniversary one day early and went out for a fabulous dinner at The Melting Pot! It was so nice to sit, eat good food, laugh, and talk about the past 7 years and the next 70! It was great to have a kid free night where we could concentrate on each other! Thank you Ernie & Kim for watching the boys! They love you and so do we!
Father's Day breakfast! Delicious crepes, yummy Mamosas, and the best company!
Heath was trying so hard to steal a little swig of Mark's Mamosa!
Daddy is Nolan's favorite play mate! I just don't cut it when it comes to racing Mack trucks, wrestling in pillows, or doing the "elevator"! Daddy is the best!
After breakfast Mark, Wes, and Tim played golf all afternoon. We met up with them at the pool in the evening for some splashing, pizza, and fun with family!
Mark...we love you so much and are so thankful for the fun you bring to our lives. Not only are you a very good time, but you work so hard to give us the best life, you are a wonderful encouragement, and our biggest supporter! You believe in us and love us for just who we are!
The boys are so blessed to have you in their lives...and so am I!
And just for fun...here's a snapshot of our little mischief makers poolside...
Brady and Nolan have a blast together and are always up to something! Here they are wasting water but having a good old time shooting it high and watching it hit the wall. Just wait until they are older...we'll be in for it!
P.S. I wanted to throw in a little shout out to our amazing fathers too!
My Dad is SUCH a servant! He would do anything for me! Fill up my gas, carry my bags, call to see if I'm safe! He has been known to drive all over town buying a million happy meals just to get me the entire set of mini beanie babies or the 1 out of the 100 dalmation toys that I wanted! I never went to bed without kissing him goodnight. And he has the BEST laugh! Get him going and he just can't stop! He grew up in a small town and is a simple man. I love that about him. He's genuine, caring, and opinionated. I got that trait from him! And today, he is a wonderful grandpa- playful & loving, only now he can be seen running all over town trying to find specific CARS for Nolan.
And Mark's Dad...he loves family, values time together, enjoys good wine, and is very active. He bikes, gardens, plays tennis, and runs a great school. Mark got his love of sports from him and he enjoys spending time in some of these same hobbies with his Dad as well. Bruce is also a great grandpa- taking the kids on garden walks, looking for Mr. Moon, and watching the boys so we can go out.
We are so blessed to have these wonderful role models and have learned so much from their presence in our lives! They taught us to work hard, put family first, love the Lord, and enjoy life!
