Eli and I celebrated 9 years of marriage this last week! Are we really that old?? Afraid so. On our actual anniversary, we stayed home with the kiddos but the evening was a bit more special. We ate dinner and dessert while listening to the CD of music from our wedding. There was even some dancing involved. The girls have this silly, white, wedding dress-up hat that they wore to dance that evening with daddy.
Today, Eli and I left all of the babies for the longest period of time we have had together in a year! I think it might have been 7 hours! We are working our way up to a whole overnight period :)
I have been wanting to get out hiking so that's what we did. It was the perfect day and a great hike. It was 2 miles from one lake to another lake and then one mile up to the lookout tower at the top of the peak in the picture below.
The lakes were absolutely gorgeous.
At the top of the peak you can faintly see Seattle, Tacoma and Puyallup off in the distance. You can also see about every larger mountain around; Baker, Adams, St. Helens. It looks as if you could throw a rock and hit Mt. Rainier. I would definitely do this one again and it really wasn't too far from our house!
Happy Anniversary my love!
