5th anniversary, 1st mother's day

Last weekend was our 5th wedding anniversary. We celebrated in style at the Rusty Pelican, on the coast. The food was really good and our server was entertaining, which always makes for a good night out. The view was beautiful, except for this big white dam that was erected since someone is building on the property next to the restaurant. You can see it vaguely in the photo. But it turned out okay b/c lots of birds would come sit on the dam, so they entertained us for most of the dinner. Anyway... it's hard to believe we've been married 5 years already!! I remember on the day we married I didn't think I could love Ty any more than I did at that time. But love is amazing and it is strange how much it has grown over the years to be much deeper and more mature. I look forward to how our love will continue to grow over the next 5 years and to see where else the Lord will lead our family!

This weekend was also my first Mother's Day! Even though Colt isn't born yet, every thing I do already affects him! Ty was so sweet and bought me a print from an artist we both really like. A copy is below. We used to go to the artist's gallery in Union Station in St. Louis after Cardinals/Astros games. If you want to see more of his work, it's at www.baseballfineart.com.

Hey, Dishes!

It's great to see that you blog. The conference I went to last weekend was for online publishing, so that's why I got so fired up when we mentioned blogging today.

I'll be around.

My much older blog is http://www.gitrsblog.us and you'd probably like the old post:
