2 Big Birthdays!

This past weekend our family celebrated two big birthdays.  My grandfather Jack turned 80 and my Mom Wendy turned 50! They share the same birthday March 11th, so it has always been really neat for them to be able to celebrate together! This one was just extra special because of the age milestones. My Grandmother, Aunts and Uncles planned a special Dinner at Grand Oaks. It was so nice and the food was AMAZING! The best part of the evening was the speeches, especially the one from my grandfather was soooo amazingly touching, and made me so thankful to have him as the Matriarch of our family.  I made sure I took video of all of them, so I will never forget these priceless memories! (Sorry the camera was so shaky I was crying like a big baby :))

My Mom wrote this to Pops and read it to him...

6 Years... Ready for 60 more!

I love the picture above... I think it's my favorite picture from our entire wedding. We look so young and naive... Sometimes I think if someone that day had shown Daniel and I in a quick slide show what was to come in the next 6 years of our marriage, that we might have both screamed and ran in opposite directions!! LOL No in all reality Daniel and I have not had this perfect fairy tail Marriage. I believe that the thing Daniel and I have going for us is that we have ALWAYS learned from our mistakes. We have walked our fare amount of valleys, but we have always walked them holding each others hands. I could go on and on about what Daniel means to me, but I"ll spare you the mussy stuff!
