This past Monday, I posted a photo from our wedding. Two little love birds leaving the church amid bubble-blowing family and friends ... such a sweet memory! It has been fun this week to reminisce with the kids about our ceremony (after watching our video, Norah remarked that it was "too long...") and our reception (Mommy stuffed the cake first?!?) and a few snapshots of our honeymoon (pictures of Daddy "when he was a little boy" ~Ashley).
Just so you can see just how much we have changed/grown/expanded/matured, here are a few fun snapshots:
The first is from our honeymoon in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. This is the bridge in front of Fish Creak Falls. One morning, we packed a lunch and drove up to the falls for a picnic and a little exercise. Another visitor to the bridge offered to take our picture. So young ... and it was just the two of us! Who knew that we would end up living on my side of the state? Who knew we'd be horribly out-numbered by our children someday? Who knew Brett would still have that shirt? :)
The next photo is from our family reunion last summer. Just a mere 12 years later and a lot has changed! For one thing, Brett is sporting a goatee and I have glasses now. But that's not the most obvious development! The biggest change would be the four little people surrounding/climbing on/hovering around us. That would be Fish Creek Falls behind us again (from the wall above the bridge) ... and it looks the same as ever, even if we don't!
As you can see, we're still smiling ... because we have a lot to smile about. Take those kids that are surrounding/climbing on/hovering around us ... they bring us a lot of smiles!
Oh ... and we still really like each other, so that accounts for a large portion of the smiling, too.
