On 7.10.10 we celebrated 9 years of marriage!!
We were actually away this year, up in the mountains at Lake George. It was so great to be able to hang out together all day! Since my dad and step-mom came up for a few days, we hung out all day with them and my niece. They stayed at a fun place right on the water with a beach, so we did a little beach day on the perfectly sunny day.
That night they took the kiddos to dinner so we could have a quiet fancy meal all to ourselves! We tried out the The Club Grill at the Sagamore Golf course and OH MY GOODNESS!! It was so good. We were originally going to just bring the kids, but we are so grateful my dad and step mom came up last minute!

It was such a quiet dining atmosphere and all would have been enjoyed in such sweet silence with a 4 and 6 year old! Don’t get me wrong, our kids love nice restaurants and good food, but it was a perfect give for us. Even the butter had little squirts of honey in it! I had surf and turf filet/lobster and Joe had a fancy fish dish. We had dessert; it was divine!
Once our dinner was over, we headed back to the main part of town, hit up the arcade and played Guitar Hero like the good old days. We found everyone and had a fun evening. It was a happy anniversary and so nice to make new memories.
Looking back, year 8 certainly had its trials and just so much happened. Joe was so sick with Crohn’s, we had some job changes, my mom got re-married (aka we all rode a plane!) our oldest went to Kindergarten, the youngest began pre-school, I decided to take on life coaching to better myself, and yet once again we became stronger and better than ever before. Once again, communication remains key and get in as many date nights as possible!! I honestly believe the best is yet to come.
Cheers to year 9 and many many more!!
