The 5th of July.

Brock and I were married on the 5th of July, 2008.

Yesterday was our second anniversary.  Two wonderful, challenging, exciting, surprising, amazing years.

I had to sleep all morning because I worked Sunday night, but as soon as I was up and moving, we packed up the car and drove up to the lake.  The weather couldn’t have been more perfect.  Ronan was in a great mood, and we dressed him to go swimming as soon as we got there.

I took a couple of pictures, but once again not nearly enough.  Ronan was in a life jacket as long as we were on the dock.  He didn’t seem to mind at all.  Also, his hat is adorable and I’m glad he’ll keep it on for more than 15 seconds now.

He loves swimming, and has no fear at all of the water.  We played in the lake for about an hour before we went inside for lunch.  Ronan went down for a nap, and Brock and I went out on the boat with Matt and company.  Brock and I both wakeboarded for the first time this year.  I swear, I rode for LESS than 5 minutes total, and I was so exhausted I thought I was going to have a heart attack.  I literally quit because I couldn’t catch my breath, too tired to continue.  It was nice to be out on the boat and not have to worry about where Ronan was or what he was doing.  We stayed out for at least two hours, and when we came back, Ronan still hadn’t woken from his nap.

Once up, we sat and let Ronan play on the deck.  He had crazy hair!  I tried forever to get a picture of it, and finally got this:

What a sweet, silly goose.

A few short hours later, it was time to head home.  Bedtime comes early at our house.  Today, I’m taking Ronan back up to the lake so his grandmom can watch him while I work a 12 hour shift tomorrow.  He’s going to have his first sleep over!  It will be strange not to have him in the house… but perhaps Brock and I will celebrate our anniversary a little more traditionally.

Hope you all had an amazing 4th of July!
