On Saturday Jeff and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary.
Who ever would have guessed that this:
Would turn into this:
We celebrated by taking the kids to the zoo, but they wouldn't keep them so we brought them home.
Jeff's gift to me was to take all four kids to the grocery store to buy a few things for supper. He texted me from the grocery store parking lot to inform me that the way to get a quiet van is CHEETOS. Genius. Pure genius. Yet another reason why I married that man.
We all stayed up late to catch fireflies. Amelia's an old pro, but it was the first time the boys got to catch them. They all had a blast, though we lost a few fireflies to some overzealous catching.
It wasn't a day full of romance and candlelight dinners, but it was a perfect way to celebrate this crazy, wonderful life we've built together.
