So, normally I get nervous hanging things that need to be centered and measured and spaced out evenly, BUT today, I was feeling a little anxious and decided..."I can do this!" I found this cute letter "B" for "Blocker" yesterday at Kohl's (a whooping$6.49!!)and thought it would be a great idea to make a collage of the boys beach pictures that we took last summer! Here is the finished product! I pat myself on the back, it really wasn't as hard as I was making it out to be! On to the next thing....

Walk alongside me, daddy and
hold my little hand.
I have so many things to learn
that I don't yet understand.
Teach me things to keep me safe
from dangers every day.
Show me how to do my best
at home, at school, at play.
Every child needs a gentle hand
to guide them as they grow.
So walk alongside me, daddy -
We have a long way to go.

Yesterday (June 6th) marked our 6 year ~Wedding Anniversary~ We had such a great evening, having dinner and being able to have one-on-one time to spend together, which as most of you understand with kids, those moments are few and far between! My mom kept the boys while we had a night out! We had dinner at Stoney River (if you have never eaten there before, I HIGHLY recommend it! Its FAN-TAB-U-LOUS!!!) Then, we met up with friends at Brendons for a few drinks and conversation (Imagine that, I was able to have a dinner without sharing AND have a conversation without being interupted...WOW!)
Thanks honey for a wonderful time, Happy Anniversary! I look forward to many years to come! XOXXO
