Brian and I celebrated our 9 year wedding anniversary on Wednesday. Normally, we do not do much for our anniversary. But this year we had a REAL treat! Our very good college friends (Tony and Mel and their son, Eli) whom we have not seen in 5 years met us in Des Moines for supper. They recently moved to the midwest so we hope to see them more often. Now, just remember that five years ago, Reagan was not in existence! It was such a joy to finally get to introduce each other to our kids!! What fun! We were so grateful to have a few hours to visit and also would like to thank our children for behaving well in a sit-down restaurant. This was the best anniversary celebration!
