9 great years!

Today is our 9th anniversary!  This time has gone by really fast and has been wonderful.  Miles is an awesome husband and I'm very lucky to have him.  We have had such fun times together over the years and we love to spend all our time together.  We met at work and worked together for the first three years of our marriage, so we were never apart.  We loved it and we were very sad when Miles took another job and we had to be apart from each other during the day.   We have become even closer as we have become parents together and have thoroughly enjoyed having children join our family.  Miles is the best dad.  We love family time with the boys and we really love couple time after they go to bed!  
Miles made me steak tonight for dinner and it was delicious!  We took turns eating while the other walked and bounced a crying Collin!  Not very romantic but we will be going out another night and leaving the boys with Grandma.  Can't wait for that!
Thank you Miles for making me so happy.  I can't imagine living life with anyone else.

Here we are at Old Faithful on our Honeymoon.  We had a great time doing nothing besides spending one day at Yellowstone!

We took a driving trip up the Oregon coast for our 4th anniversary.  It was beautiful and so much fun.

Rafting down the Snake river- our favorite summer past time!  This was in 2004 and we were up there rafting most weekends of the summer.  Some of the later trips of summer I was pregnant with Scotty- hopefully he'll love the river as much as we do!

On a recent trip up to Wyoming.

Still very much in love!

Our first vacation with Scotty.  We are just starting the path of parenthood and we're loving it.

We were so excited to have Grant join us.  He has added so much joy and laughter to our family.  

Here we are with the newest addition, Collin.  We are all working together to be a close family and we are so proud of Scotty and Grant and how they are loving and tender with Collin.  We look forward to the fun times we will have!
