10 years!

Sean and I realized this weekend that on Tuesday we will have known each other for 10 years.

Wedding + 3 kids + 3 moves + 1 big house remodel + Sarah's different careers + Sean's growing business + schools + hobbies..... = One big happy family.

Sean and I were fortunate this weekend to get to spend two nights on the Oregon Beach (kid free). With the kids safely tucked in at Grammy and Popop's house Sean and I headed to a family beach house and enjoyed a 100% relaxing weekend. I can honestly say I can't remember a weekend when I had no responsibilities and no expectations. Normally when I'm in a situation like this (even if for a few hours) I feel the need to accomplish something like fold the laundry, finish a project, unload the dishwasher. I didn't even unpack our bags this weekend. Sean and I went for a run, ate a wonderful and simple breakfast, hit the outlet mall, watched 2 movies, slept in, and read trashy magazines. Check out Sean with his first ever Star Magazine.

On our way back from the beach we went exploring in the Eola Hills outside of Salem. Absolutely, beautiful. Check out the local wildlife and gorgeous views.

It was a perfect weekend!

p.s. The kids had a great weekend as well. They got to go here. After their afternoon at the Ag Fest Bryn exclaimed to Grammy, "This is the best day of my life!" (She has a lot of those.)

These are school pictures from 5th grade and out of all fairness I posted my picture as well. Elizabeth and I grew up across the street from each other and have been friends since Kindergarten. I went on a search to find pictures of Elizabeth and me together and could not find any so I made an April resolution that I will take more pictures of my children with their friends every year because I would cherish even one picture right now of Elizabeth and me together.
