{it was a very} happy anniversary

Thanks to our good friend (and cousin-in-law) Lesley, we were able to have Friday evening and Saturday morning to ourselves for our anniversary. Its been a long time since we had one of those dates.

First we enjoyed

the sights

around downtown

St. Petersburg

and took


of pictures


each other

Then we went home and talked about how wierd it was to pull up in our driveway at nighttime and walk in the house without having to carry in any children, fix them a snack, and tuck them in for the night.

We decided to get up early the next morning and watch the sunrise, since we wanted to maximize our time together, and we've never watched a sunrise together. Seriously never.

So we headed to the Skyway fishing pier area before dawn

and watched

the sun


I can't wait to do it again.

And then Jessie made me pose for a million pictures.

I like having my picture taken when I'm pregnant. Its so fun to look back and remember, and we hardly have any of my previous pregnancies.

I love living in Florida

Since I had been so cooperative, he even let me take some of him.

Is it just me, or does this guy look like he eats a lot of studly salads?

Obviously we aren't very skilled at taking arms-extended-self-portraits.

Congratulations on five years and a wonderful date. It looks like you had a great time and a night without kids is something to celebrate in itself. I think I need a Lesley. I am so glad you like living in Florida. I remember talking to you about the decision two years ago and I am glad you are happy.

Happy anniversary! Looks like you had a wonderful time celebrating. My husband and I went some place special overnight for our 5 year (That was the last time we went on an overnight). At the time we only had 2 kids. That was 5 years ago and and 3 kids later. I don't think we will be doing any overnights any time soon. :)

Sadly, I don't think My husband and I had ever watched a sun rise together before. We like to sleep too much! :)
