July 24 marked our 10th wedding anniversary! WOW! Those who know us well know that it hasn't been the easiest journey. We have had many ups and downs in this first decade, but we can say that these last few years have been the best in our marriage. It has certainly strengthened over the years, and we feel incredibly blessed to be where we're at. I look at Jason and am grateful for who he has become- a wonderful husband, caring partner, and amazing dad.
My sister agreed to watch the kids for us so we could celebrate with a dinner date. That doesn't sound like much, right? Well, in case you haven't already heard, we're also treating ourselves (yup, no kids) to a getaway trip, but that won't be until Feb. 2010 when we go to the Olympics in Vancouver. Most people go somewhere tropical to celebrate anniversaries, and yet we're heading north! We're super excited- going to the Olympics is one of those things that's on our "gotta do before we die" list. Anyway, we marked our wedding anniversary with a wonderful meal at a restaurant here in Edmonton called Murrieta's. It was very classy and the food was delicious. It's not the type of place we would normally go to for dinner, so that made it just as special. We were able to enjoy each other's company, do some dreaming, and set some goals for the next 10 years of our marriage.
Meanwhile, Sarah took the kids to a local farmer's market and then they headed out to watch our friends' daughter's soccer game. Jason's hoping to get Grace into t-ball or soccer really soon, so it was good for her to go watch Sam play. Thanks Sarah, for helping us celebrate our anniversary!
