8 Years

On April 6th Andrew and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary (the 7th was the 11th anniversary of our first date!). We had a big weekend, sans kids, planned. Of course, when you've got little guys, things don't always go as planned. We had it all arranged that the boys would go to Grandma and Grandpa B's on Friday night to be picked up Sunday, giving us a glorious, and much needed, break for the entire weekend. Unfortunately, Joshua's tummy had other plans. Friday morning he started saying that his tummy hurt. We chalked it up to excitement about going to Grandma and Grandpas and sent him off to school. Turns out it was more than excitement. He ended up throwing up twice that day. Darn it! So we decided to keep the boys home Friday night and see where we were Saturday morning. I was pretty bummed to not get the break I so longed for, but what can you do? Thankfully, Saturday morning Joshua was totally back to normal, so we kicked them out and shipped them off, very thankful that things turned around to give us some kid-free time.

We spent the day Saturday getting caught up on some housework that is so hard to do with the kiddos around. Andrew worked on replacing the wood trim on the chimney, and I worked at doing some much needed cleaning on the inside. It may not sound like much of a party, but it just feels good to actually get something accomplished!

The real fun began later. One of our favorite musicians, Derek Webb, was playing at a church in Gilbert, so after a yummy early dinner at Chino Bandito, we went to enjoy the show. And what an amazing show it was! It was open seating and we ended up in the second row! The concert was so different than any other show I've seen. It was all acoustic, and was only his voice and his guitar, which he can do some amazing things with. He's just outstanding. Because it was an intimate setting, he pretty much just had his song book and was letting people call out requests! It was so cool and he played most of our favorite songs. It was a great night!

Although it didn't start out exactly as planned, we ended up having a great time, and a wonderful anniversary. Hard to believe it's been 8 years!
