Psalm 45:10-11, 13-15

Listen to me, O royal daughter; take heart to what I say. Forget your people and your homeland far away. For your royal husband delights in your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord. [...] The bride, a princess, waits within her chambers, dressed in a gown woven with gold. In her beautiful robes, she is led to the king, accompanied by her bridesmaids. What a joyful, enthusiastic procession as they enter the king's palace!

Celebrating our Anniversary

Joe took Monday and Tuesday off from work so we had an extended weekend, which was nice. We spent much of it lounging in our pajamas, watching movies, and enjoying our time together.

Monday, as we were cooking breakfast, Joey sat down at the piano and started playing away! It surprised us all! Well...he was sitting on my lap, but he did his own banging and had fun!

Monday afternoon we went to the beach for the first time since Joey was born. He touched the sand (and even the frigid Pacific!) for the first time!

Our attempt at a family picture. There were quite a few tries. These were just the best three.

On Tuesday, the 17th, we went to the Flower Fields in Carlsbad. Joe and I went there last year on our anniversary too. It was pretty much the same, but still fun. And no white shoes this year, just sandals...which pretty much got my feet dirty. What was fun about this is that last year at the Flower Fields is when we had a hint of suspicion there was a little bun in the oven...and there was!

In the evening, we put Joey to bed and Chuck "watched" him so that Joe and I could go out to dinner. We felt very cosmopolitan with a reservation at 8:30pm. (We wanted to make sure that Joey would be settled and have time for the unexpected.)

We went to Jake's at Del Mar where we went for my birthday a few years ago. It was fun and very tasty. And to our surprise we weren't as distracted about leaving our baby boy as we thought! I think mostly due to the fact that he was already asleep. But, of course, within minutes of us arriving him the little boy woke up!

It was a fun anniversary all in all and thank you for all your calls and greetings. Oh! And sorry if we hung up on you. We kept getting call after call while we were at the Flower Fields and in trying to turn off the volume on the cell phone we hung up (or almost hung up) on a few people. Oops!
