Our Anniversary!

Today is our 5 year wedding anniversary :o)  We have been married for 1,826 days!  I know once you’re married that date becomes your anniversary, but I do remember some other specials dates...
  • September 20, 2002—First Kiss
  • December 24, 2003—“Will you marry me?”
  • August 6, 2005—Our Wedding.
  • September 10, 2007—The day we found out we were preggers (I already knew!)
  • May 7, 2008—The day we had our precious Joseph!
We've grown so much in the 5 years we've been married!  I am so thankful for a wonderful husband and for our son Joseph, who I can’t imagine life without, a roof over our heads and supportive family and friends.  Here’s to many more!!

California State Fair

We were on the fence this year about going to the California State fair, after back and forth debating we opted not to go, and go to Costco and splurge instead!  So when Aunty Josette asked me last week at work if she could take Joseph, we jumped on the opportunity to spend time alone.  Sunday morning we prepped Joseph and told him he was going to the fair with Aunty Josette and Brienna (her daughter), and that Mommy and Daddy "would not be going."  He was totally excited.  Once we got the car seat, stroller and diaper bag together he raced and stood by the front door.  Josette and Brie came by and swooped Joseph up and were gone 6 LONG hours.  Let me tell you the day went by suuuupper sloooow.  We ran a couple of errands, and visited my mom where we had normal conversations that didn't consist of Joseph yelling "fishy, fishy, fishhhhhyyy!!!"  I must admit we did miss him :)

Joseph had an absolute blast and was so well behaved that Josette is looking forward to her next adventure with him without Mommy and Daddy!  He clapped and started yelling, "YAAAAAAYY," when they pulled into the parking lot.  He went on the train ride, "choo choo," with Brie, they spent a ton of time at the petting zoo (Joseph insisted on petting every.single.animal), ate fair food, and got a free bandana from Camp Smokey for collecting all of the stamps.  Here's a few iphone pics.  More pics to come.

Zoo Fun!

We took Joseph to the Sacramento Zoo a couple of weeks ago, and although it was hot we had a blast.  
 Our little kangaroo.

This year was especially fun for us because Joseph has learned what some animals are--zebras, lions, giraffes... thanks to Madagascar, as well as a few others.  He liked watching the otters (who put on quite a show for us), all of the different types of birds, the flamingos, and he loved looking at the koi fish they had.  We got to see the baby lion, who was huge already!  And last but not least, the reptile area.  I think Joseph loved looking at the lizards, turtles and snakes the most.

Looking at the tiger exhibit.

Checking out the flamingos.  Somebody wanted to climb the fence.
