11 years

Our 11 year wedding anniversary was this past Saturday. Michael took off work Friday to continue our tradition of a family celebration for our anniversary. 
We rolled out of bed and went to cracker barrel for breakfast. We rarely go to a sit down place for breakfast any more, so that was fun! Then we ran some errands and took naps for the rest of the afternoon. In the evening we headed downtown.We started with a picnic in the park.

Our first photo as a family of 4. 
Somehow we never got one in the hospital or up until this point. Not a great picture of me, but there you have it...4 of us now! After we ate we headed over to the splash pad to play for a little while.

"Its OK Benny, don't cry",  she's saying. 

We changed Isabella back into her clothes and walked into Bricktown for a surprise. 
(Note to self, don't mention there's a surprise to Isabella prior to them happening, unless you want 20 questions about what it is. )

I had reserved the Cinderella carriage for our ride, but the company dropped the ball on our reservation, so we went ahead and went with this one. Isabella didn't know any different though and loved it. She's holding her Cinderella little people high and proud.  Izzy and I went to sonic for drinks for us while Michael went to get the car and picked us up. We had a great day together and it was nice to have a long weekend!

Saturday was a little crazy with different events going on that morning. Later that afternoon Isabella went to stay with my parents for the first time. My sister came over to keep Benjamin for us to go out on a date. We went to Signature Grill and it was just as good as I had remembered!! The bacon and mushroom risotto is amazing!

We had hoped to go to a movie after dinner, but the timing didn't work out and nothing was out that we were really that excited about anyway. So after driving for a while we ended up at cheesecake factory and got a slice of cheesecake and a dulce de leche hot chocolate to go. We drove to the lake and watched the sun set and talked about our favorite times over the past 11 years and favorite things about each other.
Crazy to believe we have already been married for 11 years, and have two kids! Happy 11 years!

  1. What a fun celebration!! (I have to admit that same carriage company did not deliver on our carriage for 11 people at Xmas and we crammed us all in to a 4 person one!
