Our Beach Vacation 2008

The day after our anniversary, we left for Cape San Blas, FL. 7 days at the beach!! We had a great time despite lots of rain and construction noise. We are already planning next year's trip and we are even making plans to move there in the future. The kids love the ocean. I love the sun and watching my kids have so much fun. Jason is in love with the beach and a very relaxed lifestyle of fishing and kayaking with the occassional flight thrown in for money, lol!

Our 10th Wedding Anniversary!

August 8 was our 10th wedding anniversary. Jason planned a huge surprise for me :) We had a very private vowel renewal ceremony at 3:30 in the afternoon (the same time our wedding ceremony was is '98). Madison was the flower girl. Andrew was the ring bearer. Grady carried the unity candle and was the photographer. Jason had a replica made of the first tier of our wedding cake, complete with our glass cake topper. I was very surprised and happy. When it came time to renew our vows, Jason gave me a beautiful anniversary band that matches my wedding band. It was a very nice gift and the kids made it really special. I'm so lucky to have such a great husband and children.

Our beloved Jack is gone.

Jack, our Lhasa Apso, died today. We adopted Jack 13 years ago. He was 2 years old. He was our first child. He got sick last week and I took him to the vet on Friday after we returned from Newnan. He was having trouble breathing. We were the last patients for the day. The vet was very nice and explained everything to me. Jason and I decided to let Jack live out the rest of his life at home with us. He was a well-loved dog and we will miss him.

Happy Birthday Mema Rosa!

August 2 was Jason's grandmother's birthday. She died last year. We made a visit to her gravesite in Newnan, GA, on Friday. We all miss her a lot. She was a great woman. Here are some pics from the cemetary. We brought her some flowers for her birthday. Happy Birthday Mema!!!
