Last weekend, Ryan and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary and I woke up to this cute face in bed with me, and a cup of decaf on the bedside table. Sometimes it seems like we’ve been married our whole lives, and other days the past 5 years seems like 5 minutes. Either way, it’s been great. He’s a pretty good catch. And guess what my gift was…a new kitchen! Is there anything better? I really just wanted a dishwasher (washing dishes by hand with a toddler in the house is NOT FUN), but I got new everything because our house is nearly 100 years old and wasn’t made to have a dishwasher. Lucky me. Here’s a before/after shot of the kitchen:
Ryan taught Rose how to help in the yard and she is a pro. She mostly tries to get the chickens and mama and dada wet, but she gets the grass watered (which you can clearly see needs to happen) and has a blast doing it.
We also spent some time at the pool next door. We live next to a bed and breakfast that is usually only occupied on the weekends, so they let us use the pool when it’s empty. Isn’t that so nice of them? It’s perfect for a pregnant lady who is not even considering wearing a swimsuit in public.
* We are driving to Florida this weekend to visit friends and family, so if you think about it we’d love and appreciate some prayers. I’m nervous. Also, I’d love to hear any tips or suggestions for traveling thousands of miles with a 19 month old. Thanks!
