This Is Why Summer Is Awesome

Today was a divide-and-conquer kind of day. Jessa had a shower to attend, so she took Amos for the day, and Eric took Eli. On the E-squared side of things, we started out the day at the Farmers' Market (and the Biscuit Bus, of course), then ran by the grocery store to buy fruit and veggies for Jessa to take to the shower. After a quick stop at home to drop off the groceries, we went over to Southglenn, where Eli played in the fountain for well over an hour, and then had some lunch at the Mellow Mushroom. Here are some photos from the fountain.

(Wedding Photos by Peter Decker)

Ten years ago...

Surrounded by friends...
and family (some barefoot)...
We exchanged these vows...

You are my dearest friend and deepest love,
and I am so happy that on this day I will call you my wife (husband).

From this moment on I promise to love you.
I promise to treat you with honor and respect.
I promise to embrace you each day with kindness.
I vow to be devoted to our love with honesty and vigor.

I will take great joy in you.

You are my greatest bliss, a source of my strength,
and an instrument of my growth and happiness.

I thank our God eternally for you and with his grace,
give myself completely unto you , from this day forward.

And a kiss.

We celebrated.
We danced.
We frolicked.
We loved.

Fountain Fun

There's a new spot in town that has our favorite restaurant (Mellow Mushroom) and our favorite fountain. On a beautiful day like today, it was the perfect destination. And the grass watering sprinklers were a total bonus.Yum.

So big!

Fun fun!

Baby in Bubble Suit

This kid just can't get cuter.

That one's not bad either.
(That's A's new talent. He waves.)

Seattle Fun

So, a week or so ago, my youngest sister called. She was hatching a plan. A birthday surprise for my Mom.

The surprise? Us. The lovely Michelle not only hooked us up with passes from her sweet job with Horizon, she flew out to Denver to help schlep the boys and me to Seattle.

We arrived on Wednesday - which also happened to be Cinco de Mayo - and - Michelle's 21st birthday. I'm really glad I was there to help keep her out of too much trouble.
Once we arrived we traded sisters, and spent the day running around University Village with Maddie.
Optical illusion?
No. Toddler entertainment.

That evening we surprised Mom with a dinner with all her children, their significant others (except Eric - sadly), and children at the Melting Pot. Yum. Somehow none of us remembered to bring out our cameras to document this momentous event. To busy fonduing.

After that Maddie and I took Michelle out to celebrate the big 2-1. No photos of this either. Thankfully.

On Friday, Mom, Michelle, the boys and I spent the. most. gorgeous. day at I-don't-know-what beach near Everett WA.

There were eagles overhead, amazing big puffy clouds, ocean and sand - but best of all...

That sweet face! It's too much.
Sweet beachy nap.
Eli and Yaya had oodles of beachy fun, fishing, digging, and playing driftwood games.

It was a too quick, but oh so sweet trip! What fun to celebrate two big birthdays, and almost Mothers' Day with these lovelies. Great idea Michelle!
