Our Tenth Anniversary
We've reached ten years of marriage! Thursday through Saturday we spent time in Victoria Canada together. My mom came up to take care of the kids. We borrowed a car which also happened to be a Mustang Convertible... The weather was great on the way there so we had the top down for some of the trip. I think this was my record shortest and easiest border crossing. He didn't even get his hands on our IDs, asked where we were going and why. When Ben said it was our tenth anniversary he said, "Did you marry her when she was five?" and waved us on through. We laughed for a while! We accidentally let our car die and had to get it jumped before we boarded the ferry. We stayed in a fantastic Bed and Breakfast Inn in the Penthouse suite. The Innkeepers were very kind and were always going out of their way to do things for us and told us any information we wanted to know and more. We went out to eat Thursday evening. Friday we were served an amazing breakfast. I felt like I was living in Food Network land! The plating was lovely and the taste, delightful! During the morning we walked across the street to the Government House which sits on 16ish acres of beautiful gardens and groves of trees. Since our breakfast was so big we snacked and had a meal at about 4:00 at a very nice seafood restaurant. At 7 we went and saw Indiana Jones. It was a lot of fun! Saturday we started with another fabulous breakfast and then headed to the Butchart Gardens. I hadn't been ever so I was glad to finally get there. We had reservations for high tea around noon. It was fabulous. WE headed for the ferry in our convertible and absorbed some more sun before boarding the ferry one last time. I couldn't have asked for a better Anniversary! I am so thankful to have my husband. I feel so blessed that he chose me to spend the rest of his life with. We have had a great and very eventful ten years of marriage. Thanks to all of you who have been involved in our life and have loved us. We are surrounded by so many wonderful people!
