Saturday was me and Scotty's 17th wedding anniversary! We had made plans to do something extravagant, but life happened and we settled for Plan B: a trip to Millersylvannia State Park with the kids. We had a picnic: Scott's favorite spiral pasta salad (with sausage, olives, smoked cheddar cheese, and tomatoes all tossed with italian dressing) and a yummy chocolate cream pie (I used goat's milk, of course!).
After the picnic, Scott and D tossed a line into the lake for fun.
There was heavy debate between D and Nina as to whether or not this was a bullfrog or a frog. I chose not to get involved. What do you think?
Then there was the tadpole that was huge!
D was really hoping to catch something. We just didn't have the right tackle stuff.
We went on the trails for a little walk. And no trail walking is complete until you get a full moon!
The kids fought for half the trail. I was so fed up with them. But then like a switch was thrown, they started getting along. What the heck???
D claimed this branch as his own.
Dominic looks so tiny!
I finally got a picture of Nina. She spends so much time avoiding the camera, or making faces at it.
Scott's favoritest living creature. . .
Dominic started playing in the shadows of the sun. He says this is a chicken.
It was a good time. After the park, we ditched the kids and Scott and I ran a couple errands then out to dinner at our little hole-in-the-wall mexican restaurant: La Tarasca's.
The last 17 years have been the time of my life. I couldn't have chosen anyone better than Scott. We're not perfect, we don't have the perfect life, but we are perfect for each other. I can't wait for the next 17 years!
