Anniversary Weekend

Brad and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary today.  Happy Anniversary Honey!  See, I knew we could make it one more year. . . let’s try for another 🙂  Anyways, I was lucky enough to have our anniversary fall on my weekend off of work.  We celebrated by going to the Iowa game in Iowa City on Saturday.  We had fun tailgating with our friends Jason and Brandy and some of their family.  The game was a lot of fun since they beat Arizona, but boy was it a hot one.  We would like to know who the idiot was that decided to make it “blackout” Saturday when they knew it was going to be a hot one, but then I decided that we were the idiots for going along with it.  While we were at the game, Jaxson was at home with Nana Kris.  She was pulling double duty by also watching Brady.  Papa Steve came down later on to help out.  I think they all had a good time.  Today, Mom, Grandma and Wendy came down to make a run to Costco.  I always end up leaving there with way more than what was on my list.  Oh well, you usually get good deals and it’s good food.  We came back home and had some lunch and then all headed to Ames for Kade’s football game.  So far his team is 2-0, which is two more wins than they had last year.  It’s a lot more fun watching him win this year.  After the game we rushed home and got Jaxson off to Jack’s house so that we could enjoy a nice meal out for our anniversary.  We ate at Cosi Cucina and had a fabulous kid-free meal.  After our nice meal, we went to Target (of course), and actually got a good start on Jaxson’s Christmas presents.  It was so relaxing just walking around the store without worrying about Jaxson breaking something or throwing a fit, so we took advantage of it.  Now it’s home for a few hours and then off to Iowa City until Wednesday.

Here come the Hawks!

Another Hawk victory.

    Hey, look at the halo over Steph’s head in that photo! I knew you were the angel of that wedded pair, Steph 🙂 Don’t worry, you have to make it another year. Go to at least 9, since that’s what I placed my bet for 😉 Ha ha.
