Fair 2010

Last week we headed to the fair. It's becoming a much loved family tradition. Bella was able to ride more rides this year, and Farrah enjoyed her first taste of a corn dog :)

Melissa and Ryan: Save The Date

I can't wait for Ryan and Melissa's wedding!! It's 6 months away! Melissa has been so creative already, and I know the wedding will just be awesome. What is even better is that I know the two of them are so happy together. There's not much better than seeing your siblings truly happy. And my brother is so happy!!

I've also been dying to share with you this AWESOME video! It's their Save The Date! Chris and I found some similar videos online, and knew we had to have Melissa and Ryan think about doing one. All these new things make me want to get married again!!

Read Melissa's blog here to see the background of this video. And check out the video here.

I love my husband. Just so you know! :)

I don't really remember life without him now. We've almost reached the point of being together longer than we haven't. Wow.

We are different in a lot of ways, but the same in the important areas. Like how to raise our kids, being in marriage for the long haul, being night owls :)

We really are still very in love. But we know it's hard work, especially with two kids taking our attention, work being demanding, renovating a house!, moving, etc. Actually, once we got through the move (with only one quick shouting match about how to pack- ha!), we like where we are at. We're coming up on 7 years of marriage (you know, the old 7-year itch! haha) - and I'd love to blog more about marriage.

Communication is NOT my strong point. On the other hand, it's probably something Chris could have majored in. But I have learned you kinda gotta communicate. ha! Might be important. Even in the little things. I'm still not perfect at it, but at least I know!

I love advice from wise couples. Something we heard and have implemented is asking, "What's a 10 night for you?" We ask this to each other when Chris gets home for work, or even better, as he's on the way home in the car. We both get to get to say what we'd like to do that night (TV, workout, work, chill, etc.). That way, we set expectations and we acknowledge the others wishes for the night. Now, this works for us because we stay up til midnight at least.

What are some things you've learned that works for you and your hubby?

New Park

We have been hanging at a new park around here. It's fun to try new things, and the weather has been awesome, hasn't it?? Once the mosquitoes die off, it will really be great.
Bella loves the swings. She SCREAMS "Faster!" which I think means, "Higher!" IMG_6537
And how about this beautiful crooked smile?IMG_6499
I think these are some of my new favorite pictures. :)
