Still Two Fearless Hearts

It all started here...
...we jazzed it up a bit...
...decided we made quite a team...

...worked hard...
...loved...
...planned...
...plunged...

...and landed in pure bliss.
Seven years later we are still planning, working, loving, sometimes plunging (mostly our kitchen sink these days), and not so much jazzing.

I'll remember that we spent the weekend with the boys doing average things. I'll remember that Travis surprised me by making the zucchini bread I desperately needed to make. I'll remember watching him pin wrestle with the boys. I'll remember how fun it was to laugh with him as we walked out of Wal-mart. I'll remember how funny it is that everyone we walk past wants to stop us and ask if by some small chance the baby in my belly is a girl. Many feel the need to console us. Everyone knows someone with all boys and wants to share their story. Each time we try to think of something to say in response that hasn't already been said to portray the excitement we feel. Mostly, today I'll remember that I love this guy more than any other. It's fun to remember, even when I haven't forgotten.

You guys make quite a team! I will have to remind my husband more often how much I love him! :)
I think boys are great! Sure, I hope maybe someday you might have a girl too but until then, there's 1 more candidate for Pin Wrestling!!!

I don't know how you do it, but your blog is the most entertaining one I read! Congratulations on 7 years and a successful crop of zucchini :-)

Happy Anniversary you two. Thanks for waiting for me to get home to get married.

Happy Anniversary to you guys! We love to keep up with you on your blog... keep it up!

I have to leave a memory for Brit. My earliest memory, although there's not much to it... I was in Trav's apartment at BYU when you and a friend came over for something. Can't remember if you were dating yet or not, but don't think so. Yep, that's about it. My memory is pretty short. Anyway, there you go!

Don't forget to set a date to come visit Wisconsin!

Happy anniversary. I have to admit Ben and I were laughing at that second picture.

You guys are so cute. You are also so tiny. When you got married you look like babies and I know everyone thinks Travis is young looking now, but when you got married you looked like a bunch of junior high kids. LOL. Cute Cute.

Ahh--I love those pictures. I remember them so well...I think I have the same ones...well, of some of them. Of course, I don't really have your engagement pictures. We've had some good times, huh? I'm glad you guys FINALLY got married. Seven years later, huh? And still going strong! Way to go!

I like that you like all those ordinary things. You're good about appreciating them.
I just really like you...do you want to come to Texas any time soon? Okay, you can come this week because Josh is out of town, and I'm pretty much bored out of my mind. Okay, I'll prepare your honeymoon suite for you and Travis. I'm sure you can find something to do with your other kids...the ones who can't come with you as an attached party, of course. You're a peach!

Happy Anniversary! I remember your bridal shower- you're both so cute together!

Happy Anniversary! What a great post.

And I know what you mean about every stranger and their opinion on the gender in the family. We get the opposite with all of our girls. And after the fourth (who was a boy) strangers would continually find it necessary to tell me that we could stop having children now that we had our boy. with this fifth pregnancy, they all want to know if our boy will have a brother. Nope.

Hope you are feeling well!
