Saturday, Paul and I will celebrate our 6th anniversary! I can't believe it's been that long since our wedding day.
We were doing our Bible study last night, and one of the questions was about "how God has brought you and your spouse closer together." We definitely are closer than when we got married, but we were really close from the very first moment of our relationship. We got to figuring.... We've known each other for 22 years now. That's twice as long as some of our friends have known each other, who have been married several years longer than us. We are so lucky.
Today we went on our "anniversary date." We weren't able to go on a movie date, so we decided to take advantage of a gorgeous day, and have some fun time. We went in to town and got burgers for lunch, then got ice cream, then took the boys to the park. We spread out a blanket and Jacob slept in his car seat while Nathan ran and climbed and slid. After I finished my ice cream, I took over on following Nathan around and Paul stretched out on the blanket and lost himself in his book. It felt so good to just be outside.
We came home for naps, and then we all went outside again. Nathan played in the sand and on his slide, then we went for a walk around the hay pasture. Then we played in the sandbox some more before supper. Paul's dad came over and joined us for supper.
Well, I'm going to watch Paul's team [.....lose, I hope]. My team won today. So it just made a great day even better!
