Our 7th Anniversary

August 9th marks the date of David and my 7th anniversary. We decided to celebrate the Saturday before though as Monday night isn't exactly the best day for us to go out. My parents came to watch the boys and they took them to the Pt. Defiance Zoo (see pics below). We went out to Wild Ginger (Asian fusion type restaurant) in Seattle for lunch, then to see the movie "Inception,"and then to the Cheesecake Factory afterward for dessert. Naomi tagged along for the ride and was a real trooper! Quiet as a mouse during the whole date! The movie was OK, but it made me thankful to know what reality REALLY is and thankful that I don't have to hide or escape real life to look for happiness. (I know....super deep thoughts by me, but whatev.) And I found it ironic that when we went to the Cheesecake Factory, we were greeted with, "Welcome to the Cheesecake Factory...the happiest place on earth!" I was thinking...umm...not so much!!

Happy anniversary to the best husband for me and thanks be to God for directing me to him! What a blessed gift my husband has been to me. I have grown and changed a great deal (for the better of course) over the past seven years and a good part of that is due to his leadership, encouragement, love, and prayers for me. Thank you honey for all you do for me and for our family! I love you!!

When we got a picture with Miss Naomi, two of our boys were dying to have their pictures taken too, so Caleb and Josiah got their shy smiles on to pose with Daddy.

Here is a nice picture of my Dad with his oldest and youngest grandchildren. He likes to call Naomi his "little sweetums."

Josiah had fun climbing on the jungle gym at the zoo.

I love this sweet little look Caleb is giving Grandma here.

Daniel is obviously enjoying himself as well!

The twins had fun going down the slide together too it appears!
