Family Day / Anniversary

Saturday May 8th was me and Michael's 11 year wedding anniversary. It was pretty understated this year. We've done tons of fun things in years past for our anniversary such as a cruise to Alaska, trip to Hawaii for our honeymoon and even a trip to Disney world. This year was a little different, but still memorable. First we took all the kids out garage saling and I found a few brand new outfits for Ella and a shirt for Owen. After that we stopped at The Commons in Federal Way for the opening of the farmers market.
The boys got free Popsicles and Michael and I got free ice cream sandwiches.

At the BECU booth the boys got to put stickers on pots that we can take home and plant with the seeds they gave us. It was a metaphor for watching your money grow..hahaha! ;) They were free too!

Around dinner time our friend Micah and Kim came over with their son Andy to watch the boys so we could go out on a date. We were going to go to Salty's or Anthony's, but we opted for a noisier restaurant instead. Sometimes evening can be a really rough time for Ella so I didn't want to be all stressed out if she started crying.

So we headed to Famous Dave's...I love that place. The food rocks and we had lots of leftovers. YUMMY! I hate the way my new glasses reflect the flash all the time now...super annoying!

Oh yeah and Ella was a gem! She slept the whole time until our food came and then she just looked around until I was finished eating. Then I took her out to the car to nurse her and then we got to do a little shopping at the Burien Value Village. I love that place! Found 3 pairs of shoes for the kids and some clothes for Ella and Owen.

It was so nice to get out for a little while almost alone! It's hard to imagine we've been married 11 years already. We feel so blessed by what God has done in our lives so far and can't wait to see what else he has in store for us.
