Grant and I will be celebrating our 6th anniversary this coming Sunday! We were able to sneak a way a little early to spend some Eli-free time with each other. What a treat! After deciding that we should focus on doing things that prove difficult or impossible to do with Eli in tow we settled on a beautiful location where we could hike, relax, go out to dinner and to the movies! Two nights away meant two mornings of sleeping in and two days of doing what we wanted to do when we wanted to do it.
These pictures are of our 10 mile hike on Sunday (5 miles up, 5 miles down). with a few glitches right off the bat (I tripped and nearly headed down the side of the trail. Grant got stung by some sort of flying insect) we found a good pace and enjoyed the scenery, fresh air and conversation. About 3/4 of the way up we also saw a wild goat on the path. I wasn't quick enough with the camera for that one!
On our actual anniversary Grant will be running in a 1/2 marathon with a couple friends and we'll exchange our "traditional anniversary gifts" (year 6 is sweets/candy). I'd like to say I will share my sweets with you but chances are they'll be gone in one day!
