When you have little kids...

Celebrating our anniversary looks a lot different than it used to. We didn't make any elaborate plans for our anniversary night, as we were going away for the weekend to celebrate. I still wanted to do something special....

In the spring/summer, Jordan tends to get home a lot later than usual, so things just get a later start... so we sat down for dinner around 7:20. Both Tyler and I were pretty hungry at this point...I made a special dinner for us (grilled steak, twice baked potato casserole, carrot soufflé, salad, fresh bread, and chocolate soufflé). Everything was so yummy, but we didn't get so spend dinner reminiscing over the past 4 years and talking about our love as I would have liked- but between bites, we were training Tyler how to behave at the dinner table and to obey and feeding rice cereal to a fussy baby...

Once dinner was over, we began to get the kids ready for bed...Tyler had a BM in his under ware while I was getting Jack ready, so Jordan took care of that (my hero) and I got Jack into bed... Tyler was wearing his McQueen jammies, which light up every time he moves-- not ideal for getting him to go to bed when he was already a little hyper... so a few jammie changes later... he was in bed too...

So we laid down on our bed for a quick nap/rest after getting our hyper toddler into bed... and woke up 45 minutes later.... groggy and even more sleepy than before!

Yeah... I am so glad I didn't have too high of expectations on the night! As we were coming to, after our little nap, we laugh about how old we are getting and that this is definitely not what it was like 4 years ago! Having little kids sure does have an effect on things! Everything is so much better... a little more sleepy, but richer and fuller... no wonder we are so tired... our lives are full to the brim with blessings!

We were able to celebrate our anniversary this weekend without too much distraction! Jordan took me to Ocean City, where we stayed at a friends beach house. Even though we had gloomy weather, we had a wonderful time just being together (with Jack!).

We watched our wedding video, which was worth a fun! Crazy how times change! It was such a special time, and I am so grateful for it. Thank you love, for the time spent, the love shared. I love you more now than I ever thought I could!
