10 Year Anniversary Vacation to Turks & Caicos

We were married a decade ago on July 10th and 11th. In order to celebrate the amazing love and hard work that has gone into our marriage and building our family, we spent an amazing week at Beaches in the Turks and Caicos.  Happy Anniversary to my Mesh, my best friend since we met on the first day of college 17 years ago, my partner for 14 years and my husband for 10.

We had a fun ride on this boat.


Nate spotted this stingray just a foot from the beach.

This girl knows the proper way to do the lazy river.

Celebrating 10 years of marriage with a beautiful dinner on the beach, complete with a waiter skilled at taking posed pictures. :)

My dermatologist would be very proud of me for wearing hats and applying sunblock to myself and the kids every 90 minutes - it was HOT!

Happy 4th!

Happy 4th of July! We walked and scooted in our home town parade this morning and tonight will enjoy some fireworks and celebrate Gramps' 65th birthday a day early!

Summer time!

Summer is here and the living is easy! I love that my job allows me to have most of the summer off with the kids and after a long school year of running around to/from their schools and lots of activities, I decided to have a mostly schedule-free summer! The kids will go to one week of wilderness day camp, have soccer twice a week, and we have a big vacation coming up to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary (okay so not totally schedule-free) but other than that we are just making plans day by day and it feels so good!
