A picture is worth 1000 word s

Between running a family of five, a photography business, and a part time job; there is not much time left to sit down and write about all the happenings of our adventures. So I will let the pictures do the talking ...Enjoy!

Happy Anniversary

Every year we switch off planning for our anniversary. This year it was Brandon's turn. He kept everything a complete surprise. I was excited to finally find out what we'd be doing. He told me to pack an overnight bag and we dropped the kids off at his moms to sleepover. Brooks was a bit upset that he couldn't come. We jumped in the car and were on our way. He even blind folded me :) it was kinda fun not knowing where we were going. I took a little nap and woke up when the car stopped. We were at the stillwater at Jordanelle reservoir. We were actually camping at jordanelle when Brandon asked me to be his girlfriend :) so it was really sweet! After we checked in we headed out to dinner at park city. Then we were going to see a movie but Brandon had put the wine in the freezer so we headed back to the hotel to get it out before it froze. It had been snowing since dinner and on the way back it was like a blizzard! It was extremely scary driving through the pitch black canyon in a blizzard. We couldn't see anything but the snow coming at us. We actually had to turn off the lights to be able to see the road. After what seemed like the longest drive, we decided to stay in and just enjoy eachothers company. In the morning we went shopping at the Tanger outlets and with it being memorial day weekend there were some great sales! We spent a small fortune on clothes, mostly on the kids. It's frightening how easy it is to justify over spending when it's for your kids ;) Brandon had another surprise planned for us but was rescheduled due to the weather. It was a great weekend and a fantastic anniversary! Thanks to my Hubby, my partner in crime and my best friend for the hardest most rewarding 4 years of my life! -Happy Anniversary XOXO

I have to tell you, when we got home on Sunday we went to diner at my Grandmas like we do every week . I told you hire brooks was upset that he couldn't come with us to our anniversary date. Well he told everyone at dinner "it's my parents anniversary! They went to a hotel...and they stayed there the WHOLE NIGHT!!" Ha It wouldn't have been as embarrassing if my great aunt and uncle didn't happen to be there ( we see them about once every other year lol)
Just thought I'd share another great Brooksism
