Happy 34th Birthday, to my bearded/now not bearded Joshua!
I love being married to this guy and I love how strong a view on Marriage we both have!
We can't believe that he's 34! I'm a year and 4 months older than him, so it always seems like he is exactly the same age as me. He's just turning 34 now? What a young 'un! The kids think it's hilarious that I am older than him, since to them being older means being wiser and Dad is always the one who knows the answers to your questions/fixes things. (Asher once said, Mom you are not the boss, Dad is! Do you even know how to fix a bike tire?)
Here are just a few things that Josh and I like to do together:
-Go to Barnes n Noble, Grab a few books we've been wanting to read/look good and sit down and read them together. I like to share everything I learn. Josh is patient with me and listens.
-Go to Barnes n Noble (again!), bring a board game and play while having a treat from the Cafe.
-Go to In N Out, elbow our way into finding a seat and then eat and eat and eat! (I love In n Out!)
-Go to the Movies. Usually it's just the $2 movies unless we have a gift card, etc!
-Swim in the pool when all the kids are in bed.
-Go scorpion hunting together (in a black light they glow iridescent so we find them and spray them). Our highest count was 12 or 13 once. They freak me out but I like to be around Josh and he makes me feel protected!
-Watch random shows on Netflix: Foyle's War, Alfred Hitchcock, Studio C, you name it.
-Read together. We'll take turns reading a good article or family history. It's fun!
-Go to the Temple. We try to go at least once a month and then sometimes get a treat after! We really love going!
-Do Creative Dates. We'll see up a Movie Theater in the van and do fun board games as well.
I don't know why I wanted to write about what we do together, but I want you to know that I love spending time with this man! He is funny, kind, happy, wise, brilliant, talented, dashing (with or without the beard) and I am so glad to have him in my life! Happy Birthday, Babe!
-Also, thank you to all of those who read Elizabeth first blog posts and commented on them! She was thrilled to see comments on her posts!
