8 Amazing Years

July 15, 2000 was the beginning of forever - and it's been a wonderful ride ever since. Girls Camp was near Payson, so Shawn suprised me and had the babies stay with Gramma and Grampa while we went to Payson and Girls Camp at Camp Lo Mia. On the way back we stopped at the Natural Bridge and hiked through it. It was spontaneous, beautiful, tricky, natural, exciting, and WAY FUN - just like the last 8 years!

I'm so lucky to have my Shawn. He is a huge supporter of me and our family and I'm so lucky to have found him and that he loves me too.
I'm also so glad he had the foresight to celebrate early because our anniversary was spent taking care of pink eye, ear infection, and bronchitis...
Happy Anniversary, Babe! I love you!

Happy Birthday, Jackson!

WHAT!?!? It's been a year already? What a wonderful day that was! Little gramma met us at the hospital and took Joss home to take care of her while daddy, Jackson and I got to work to get him here. Right this minute he is a bit tired and snuggly and it reminds me what a sweet little guy he is.

The Childrens Museum in Phoenix just opened and charge for kids ages 1 and up, so the day before Jackson's birthday we went - Thanks for the frugal gene, Mom, I saved $9.

Joss and Jackson playing with the sand.

They had a bunch of huge shoes the kids could try on:

Joss got to help paint this house! She loved it!

Here are some of the birthday highlights:

Jackson's first taste of cake - I think he likes it!

Not to be overshadowed by a simple birthday, Joss was showing how big she is by getting herself undressed.
