At the beach

While Phil and I were away this weekend, my family took Wade to the Lake and let him play on the beach. This was his first experience with sand and the pictures were great so I thought I'd share.


This weekend, Phil and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe we've already been married for 4 years!
We decided a while ago that instead of exchanging gifts, we would rather spend the time together on our anniversary. This year Phil took me to Las Vegas and we stayed here:

He also took me to see this:

It was phenomenal!

I love you baby and I love being married to you! Here's to many more years being married to the best man in the world!
