Happy Anniversary!

Holy Crap! It's been four years of marital bliss! Well, the morning of our anniversary (after Ty had been trying for weeks to get me to decide to go somewhere and I always said, "no") I woke up and said, "Let's go to St. George!" I think because I've been sick, somewhat homebound, and maybe a little depressed over all the stress, that Tyler jumped at the chance to bring me out of it! He said, "Great! You go to the gym and by the time you get back, everything will be taken care of." Seriously, the only reason I didn't want to go anywhere was because I didn't want to leave my children.If Madden wasn't so little, I think I would have jumped at the the opportunity a little more. But....realizing that maybe my husband needs some of my attention too, I sacrificed being with the kids and we had a great time! My wonderful husband knows me so well and pretty much gave me a dream vacation. We got to St. George and had a great dinner and then went to have some chill time watching movies. We ate an entire box of truffles. Then the next day, we went to Zions, regardless of awful weather, and did two pretty difficult hikes. We would have done a third hike, but the weather took a turn for the worst. The first hike we went on was the Emerald pools. We made it to all three pools before the snow started to fall. We continued to plow through the hike and finished in record time. Then we decided to do Angel's Landing. Needless to say, it was still snowing throughout the hike. Before we got to Walter's Wiggles, in addition to snow, the cold, and some rain, the wind began to blow. Did I say wind? I meant to say fight-against-bitter cold-strong wind. By this point we were soaked, cold, and my already-weakened lungs began to wheeze. Fearing the worst, we turned back. By the time we got to the car, a blizzard had begun. A little discourage that we couldn't finish the hike, we went back to our hotel and then went shopping, dinner, and a movie! I have to admit, we both got two scoops of ice cream and then later ate a bag of hershey nuggets. This has been the worst week of eating ever! I'm going to have a miserable week next week to work it off, but it was such a fun vacay being with the hubs. Even though I thought about the kids constantly, it was a needed time to be with Tyler. Love you babe and thank you! This last picture is what happens when London plays dress up with Madden. Poor boy.

Sounds so fun! You both deserve it.

Oh, and stop being so hard on yourself. I ate all that for breakfast.
