Anniversary Weekend

Well, we are back from camping! It was only a one night trip, but we still managed to fill up the entire back seat and trunk with our camping gear. We started out our Saturday going to the hospital to see Cohen. Then we stopped by the Farmer's Market where we got some fresh fruit and veggies (yum!), then to the grocery store to get some food to eat while camping then headed on our way. We stopped by Danny's parents to say hi and drop off some pictures of Cohen.

We set up our tent and got everything unpacked and went for a little walk to the beach. We saw a little trail on the way back so we took that back to our campsite, that was about as close as we've been to a hike all year! By then we were starving so we made some bacon cheeseburgers to go with our vegetables. We finished up with some chocolate cake for dessert. We got into bed about 7:00 and talked about what we've learned about each other over the last 2 years and how it seems like we just got married yesterday and at the same time it feels like it was about 10 years ago. We were both asleep by 8:00 pm and we didn't get up until 8:00 am! Best sleep I've had in awhile despite the noise of the airplanes (we were in Des Moines, which is sort of near the airport) and the teenagers running around. In the morning we got up and had bacon and eggs for breakfast and then cleaned up camp. We had to clean all the "empties" out of the tent...2 water bottles and 3 cans of fruit juice :) Mom and Dad had a big night out! {We aren't very good at self portraits...this is as good as it gets!}
Danny had made reservations for a nice restaurant in Bellevue, but we decided we have eaten out enough and to come home for the night to Lynden. First, we stopped by to snuggle Cohen. He is doing well, but had to be turned up a little on his oxygen because he was having more ABC's (when he forgets to breathe and drops his heart rate). Poor little guy has had immunizations the last 2 days so he has had a low grade temp, and they are pretty sure the ABC's are just from that and that he will be back down on his oxygen when he is feeling better. We will have a romantic evening of washing cars, doing piles of laundry, vacuuming up fruit flies (someone, who will remain nameless, left some fruit out...) and eating homemade tacos. Sounds perfect to me!
{Cohen, back to looking like a cupcake in his extra warm hat from a friend's sister, thanks!!}
This might sound funny to some of you, but please say a little prayer for our kitty. He has been transitioning to an outdoor kitty but came in for a little visit. As I was typing this, I think he had a seizure. We have never seen him do this before and it scared us quite a bit. He was our first baby, we got him right after we got married. I had to go into our room and hide because I wasn't sure if he was dying or what he was doing. He seems to be doing okay now, but please just say a little prayer for him...we don't want to have to think about losing our kitty too :(


  1. Love baby Cohen's hat!!! He looks extra warm :) Praying for russell....and all you guys!
    Love, HAYLEE

  2. Happy Anniversary guys! You deserve a little break. Enjoy the tacos and some alone time. Thinking about Russell (he needs to get back on the bicycle)
    love ya,

  3. Happy Anniversary you two. If you ever stop by your mom's and have time... come up even if for a few minutes to say hi. Or I can come down there either way. Would love to see you!

    Loves and prayers.
