5 years

On Friday we celebrated our 5 year anniversary. We stayed the night at a bed and breakfast in Logan, UT. We ate lots, browsed some antiques stores and candy shops, drove around the town, sat in front of the Logan temple and talked while enjoying the view, watched a movie in our room while laying in bed eating popcorn, went canoeing and just enjoyed being alone with each other. It was wonderful. The last 5 years we have had some amazing times and we have grown so much as a couple and individuals.

There is a song by Miranda Lambert called "The House that Built Me". It is about a girl going back to the house she grew up in and asking the new owmers if she can take a look inside. There is one verse that says "nail by nail and board by board, daddy brought life to mama's dreams". I love that song and it summarizes my husband. He has brought life to all of my dreams from helping me through school, to doing all my little projects in the house and most importantly giving me our family. I love Colin, he is so supportive, attentive and kind. He is truly my best friend and companion.

Eliza and I went to the new dairy farm in Midway to visit the cows and buy some cheese. We sampled cheese and ice cream, visited with the cows bought some squeky cheese. It was a cute place and the cheese was pretty good. She loves to say "moo" now after visiting with the cows. There were a lot of other cows in the pasture I just didn't get any pictures of them.

These pictures are from later in that same day. She loves this purple hat my mom bought her for easter. She will just find it and wear it for hours. She is adorable!

Super Dad

I was doing yard work in the backyard and thought Colin was inside watching Eliza until I heard the lawn mower going in the front yard. Just Colin mowing the lawn with the baby. Aren't they cute?
