Five years ago, Blake and I promised forever to each other. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine what a blessing the next five years would be to my life. I married a great man. We have made some wonderful memories and had some great adventures in the last five years. (Of course the greatest memory and biggest adventure yet has been becoming parents). Blake surprised me with a card on the morning of our anniversary telling me that we would be spending the night in the Iris Suite of the Garden Inn, which happens to be the same place we were five years ago! We were very excited to be going back, and this time we were bringing our little girl with us (since she still will not take a bottle and I'm not quite ready to spend the night away from her)! We were a little worried about her screaming through the night (even though she has never done that). Of course our little girl was perfect! We checked in around 7:00 p.m. and got our stuff settled. We then headed downstairs for dessert (some of the best cheesecake we have eaten) and picked out a movie or two for later. We took Taylor back to the room and got her to bed in her pack and play. She did wake up about 20 minutes later but we got her right back to sleep. She then slept until 3:00 a.m. and I got to her before she started crying. She woke up at about 6:30 because it was storming, but still did not cry! We were able to get ready and enjoy breakfast together where she entertained everyone there! Breakfast was excellent! We then got a call that our puppy (who we left at home with the neighbors watching him) had been a little punk the whole time, so we decided to head on back. It was such a wonderful time and way to spend our anniversary! The owners were so nice and told us to bring Taylor back any time! We are so blessed with each other and with a wonderful baby!!! Here is to the next five years as a family!!
Taylor had to check out the tub!
