7 years and no itching!

Sunday (June 7) Steve and I celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary. To celebrate, we took a trip to St. George without the kids. We had a fun, relaxing weekend (Friday-Monday) with each other. It was fun just to be together without work or kids. As part of our Sunday there, we saw some of the church history sites in St. George i.e. Brigham Young's winter home, tabernacle, Jacob Hamblin home and the temple of course. I forgot my camera, so the only pictures I have are on my blackberry. As soon as I figure out how to get them off the phone and onto my computer I will post them.
We did a temple session Saturday morning and were lucky enough to be the witness couple. Its kind of funny, every time we have gone to the temple out of town we end up being the witness couple. We have been lucky enough to do that in the Nauvoo temple, St. Louis temple and St. George. We must have that glow. ha ha!
We cannot believe it has been 7 years since we got married! It has been a great 7 years full of adventure, learning, growing and bonding. We have accomplished a lot in 7 years and have two cute little boys from it. I love Steve and am so proud of him. He makes me laugh daily and is fun to share my life with. to Steve ...1-4-3!

Good friends!

Steve's good friend Dave Vassilaros ,who he met in the missionfield-MTC actually, and his wife Bonnie came out to Utah and we got to spend some time with them! With the exception of about 2 hours last summer, Steve hasn't seen him since his mission 10 years ago! Dave and Bonnie live in Pennsylvania and we do not. Last year on our church history tour we happened to stay one night in Allentown, PA , Dave's hometown, so we met up for dinner.

On their trip to Utah, we were able to spend half a day with them; it was fun!

They had not eaten dutch oven cooking before and Steve is an awesome cook so he cooked up a meal and taught them how!

As a fun way to bring back memories and laughs, he bought Dave a Flannel since he always teased Steve about wearing his in the mission field.

Here are the two pictures I managed to snap while they were here.

Thanks Vassilaros for visiting and your friendship!
