We often leave town and stay somewhere else for our anniversary, and oftentimes we don't even go on our actual anniversary. This year, Steve had the idea to take off work and do day full of local dates. Since I've done almost all the planning in years past (maybe all the planning?), I jumped on board immediately to Steve's plan. He even planned the dates. We started the morning with disc golf, then took the scenic route to Vernal where we went mattress shopping and almost bought a mattress, then we ate at Plaza Mexicana (Steve's new favorite Mexican place), then went to the library to read until we could get into the next movie at the theater. It was a full and fun day together celebrating 19 years of marriage. I loved it.
Being married to Stephen is a blessing. He is funny and calm, compassionate, and passionate, caring and smart, patient and perseverant. I love that he takes his fatherhood seriously and works hard to provide for our family, while also sincerely desiring to support our children in their interests and education. He's always cared for their well-being, from the womb he was reading to them and making sure I was taking my prenatal vitamins. Now, he likes to connect by watching good shows with them like Tales from Avonlea, Anne of Green Gables, Pride and Prejudice, and musicals. We all love it when we can spend time with Steve!
Heres's some pictures of our anniversary stay-cation, in backwards order (I don't know why, but that's how blogger did it)
|Good popcorn, crummy show! Don't waste your time with any of the Magical Creatures movies.|
|Steve fell asleep while reading.|
|I enjoyed the Pioneer Woman magazine at the library!|
|This was Steve's first time to Plaza Mexicana, and my second. I was nervous he wouldn't like it because he's not a big Mexican food fan, but he ended up liking it. He really loved the crispy relleno.|

|We almost bought a mattress, but couldn't decide between 2 of them. We spent probably close to 2 hours trying out mattresses and talking it over.|
