#3 - Bed and Breakfast at Granbury

So much fun perusing all the local shops.  I don't even know if we even spent any money :-)

Bet you can't even tell she's 8 months pregnant with Walt.

#4 - Lake Whitney Camping Trip

The cheapest anniversary trip we ever took was to Lake Whitney when Will was around one year old. The bike riding was nice with all the flat roads and Amy made a really good camp dinner of grilled chicken and watermelon.  I think it was even around the time that Will started to take his first steps.

We tried to replicate the trip in a subsequent year, but everything went terribly wrong :-)

#5 - Prom Dates

I've enjoyed going to proms and banquets with my wife over the years. She always dresses up so nice and makes me proud to be her husband.

#6 - Bike Riding at Getzendanger

Bike riding at Getzendanger was definitely one of the best dates we ever had. We dropped the kids off at a sitter and headed for the park. We rode all the way to the end of the trail and looked around the old train station. After that we went somewhere for ice cream. :-)

Isn't she pretty?

#7 - Staying Home When my Boys Were Born

In Honor of 10 Years of Marriage...

I present the top 10 stories of our marriage over the next 10 days :-)

#7 - Staying Home When Will and Walt Were Born

I don't remember how much time off I took when Annabelle was born, but it was days - not weeks.  When both Will and Walt were born, I took off at least two weeks.  It was so awesome to not have any obligations and just adjust my schedule to best help with newborns.  I would whole heartily encourage any other dad to do the same.

#8 - Living in the Trailer Park

In Honor of 10 Years of Marriage...

I present the top 10 stories of our marriage over the next 10 days :-)

#8 - Living in the Trailer Park

So many experiences :-)  I think the best part of life in the trailer park was finding joy in each other, when we had so little else to distract.  More than anything, I enjoyed walks together with Amy in the evening, when all our kids were very young.  The setting sun always calmed them down and we knew we would have the rest of the evening to relax.  Sadly enough, I don't even remember what we did in the evenings before Netflix!

Oh, and... the bear shaped pool!
