Not only have we been busy at home, but we have been doing a little traveling lately too. On June 25th, Joe and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary! This was us on a beautiful, perfect Saturday 5 years ago!
5 yeas ago, I married the perfect man for me and I can't believe where our lives have gone since that day. A lot has happened and we took a little mini trip to celebrate our wonderful 5 years together! Joe didn't have any time he could take off from work so we had to stick close and just go some where for the weekend. We decided to go to Chattanooga because it was close and has so much fun stuff to do! We enjoyed good eating, the TN Aquarium, good sleeping, a 3D movie, and good talking. I love my boys, but sometimes it is just good to get away from all the craziness and just be able to catch up with each other. We had a great time and it was a much needed break away. I love my husband and am so thankful for him! I look forward to many, many more years and memories together!!
(So for the last few months I have been craving a cake from McEntyre's Bakery. (they did our wedding cake and their cakes are DELICIOUS!!) I have been saying I didn't want anything else for my birthday in August, but a cake from McEntyre's. So....my so thoughtful husband came home the Friday we left for our trip with a cake from McEntyre's!!! I was so surprised and excited! It is the little things that mean the most! We took the cake with us on our trip and enjoyed every bite of it....hence the reason my doctor got on to me for gaining to much weight at my last appt. )
Hanging at the TN Aquarium
3D movie about space...Joe's choice ;)
A carriage ride around downtown Chattanooga!
Spending some quiet time talking and kissing by the TN River!
So the next weekend we headed out for our next trip, Savannah TN! All of my moms family lives in TN and as a little girl my family would make several trips a year and I would spend weeks there in the summer. Well....as you get older and life changes....I don't get to go to TN much anymore. This trip over the 4th of July will actually be our only trip there this whole year! (My family is being so great and coming here for Christmas this year since we will have a newborn!) We always have so much good country fun when we go to TN and the boys have a blast playing with all their cousins!
The boys headed out to pick cucumbers from the garden with papaw and daddy!
They would get so excited when they found one!
Checking out the beans!
During the summer in TN, there is a lot of swimming involved. On this trip we swam in the TN River, a creek and a pool! My Uncle built a beautiful house on the TN River and we spent part of the day enjoying his house and his water toys!
Luke's first ride on a jet ski!
Cade's first ride on a jet ski!
(I was so sad I couldn't get out and ride. I love being out on the water and jet ski's are so much fun!!)
Then we moved on to the creek. One of my cousins just bought some property that has a beautiful creek on it. He invited us over for some fun swimming! The water was freezing and it took the boys a while to get use to it!
Since we were there for July 4th, we of course did tons of fireworks. I didn't however get any pictures of any of that because I was to busy trying to convince Cade not to be scared of the fireworks. He has been scared every year and I was just hoping he had grown out of it for this year....but he hadn't. So most everyone enjoyed some great fireworks while Cade and I sat in the house and played. Overall, it was a great trip and always great to see and spend time with family! Our traveling for the summer is done now, so back to preparing this house for a 3rd munchkin!!
