I am Thankful for a Hubby That...

...loves me, all of me, just the way I am...but also one who will help me with my shortcomings! ;) I'm thankful that I have a husband who is faithful and a forever friend. I am thankful for a hubby who is a wonderful father to all our precious children. And I am thankful that my sweet husband of 8 years is a man striving after God. Happy 8 Year Anniversary, sweet love of my life!

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Today is our 8 year anniversary...8 long (in a good way!), wonderful years! In honor of our 8 years together we took a mini vacation this past weekend...with the kiddos! Nothing like celebrating marriage with the fruit of your marriage, haha! It really was wonderful tho...and lucky for us we had a fantastic hotel room and were able to have some time all to ourselves after the boys went to sleep!

We planned activities that were centered around the boys, and we had a blast too. They were both great and immensely loved our "baycation" as Johnathan called it! We spent most of Saturday at the Houston Children's Museum...which was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! It was totally awesome and had so much to see and do. Johnathan loved it and they even had a special floor dedicated to 0-3 year olds so even Eli was able to have a great time!

Sunday we went to the zoo and had another wonderful day. Some of the animals were a bit sleepy so we didn't get to see them in action too much, but it was a fantastic zoo nonetheless and one of the better ones I've been to. Johnathan especially loved that he and the big lion shared the same name!!!

Besides the museum and zoo we hit some hot spots to eat including the Cheesecake factory and Rainforest Cafe...which Johnathan loved, of course...and we even scouted out a local place to eat that was delicious. On the way out we just had to stop by Pottery Barn & Pottery Barn Kids...I love getting their magazines in the mail but had never been into a store before...they were both just as good or better than looking in the magazines!

We had a wonderful trip and here are a few photos of our "baycation" in Houston...

oh how fun! I am glad you had a good time. That is definately impressive that Eli slept in a bed like that! We are going to a hotel in just a few weeks and I am already worried that Charlie is just going to stay up all night without his own crib/room. we'll see...

I am so happy that your anniversary/bacation was so great! The pictures are great and I must say that the one where Johnathan and Eli are in bed looking at each other is my very favorite. How great to have these pictures to look at in the years to come.

Love you and happy for your 8 years together and the effort and love you've put into your marriage.

Love,

Mom
