11 Years

(Me and Kerry in December of 1997. We were so young -- 21 and 27)

On Saturday, Kerry and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. Since we love spending our time as a family, Kerry took the day off, and we spent it all together. We started the day with breakfast at IHOP (a favorite for the boys). Then we headed to Cape Canaveral in attempts to see the space shuttle launch. We ended up at a place called Jetty Park. The launch was delayed but we enjoyed the day up there anyway. Kerry and Caleb got to fish. We played in the sand. Silas loved the water a little too much. I even got to read a little. Even though it takes a lot of effort to get four boys ready along with the stuff needed for an entire day out, it was relaxing to escape from our normal, everyday life for a few hours. We came back sandy, sticky, and exhausted but refreshed with the quality time spent together.

(Cruise ships went right by where we were. It was contagious just watching them. It made Kerry and I want to sign the family up for one right then.)
