Five Years of Wedded Bliss...

...this past Friday, the Mister and I celebrated 5 years of marriage. On our 5 year anniversary, AR and I went to Game 1 of the NLCS...but on Saturday, Matt and I spent the entire day together, which is more alone time that we've had since AR's been born.
 
My sis and H watched AR.

I think it's safe to say that she had a great time with them.

I got Matt a bunch of dove decoys for our anniversary per his request. Matt planned the entire celebration and my DSLR that I got for Christmas last year is still being counted as my present for all holidays. :-)

Since we're both trying to be a healthy, I told him I wanted to be outdoors and go for a hike. We drove to Reifsnider State Forest for the day.

We started out on a nature trail but when we saw the creek was totally dry, we decided to walk in it. It was amazing what we saw...like this tree that is normally underwater.

We found a tree we could both fit under...here's Matt.

It was perfect weather and the scenery was gorgeous.

We found a few fossils along the way.

We packed our lunch which was a sandwich, Pringles, pasta salad, a couple waters and some Pink Moscato that we drank sat from the bottle because we're classy like that.

We headed back to our house where we were going to visit with AR, my sis and H but she was taking a three hour nap from being out so late the night before. After a few minutes at the house, we went and saw "We're the Millers." It was a pretty good movie, Matt and I both enjoyed it. Then we went to dinner at Chili's where we totally blew our diet and it was well worth it!
 
There's not a whole lot to say about the past five years that hasn't already been said. It's been a roller coaster of ups and downs, learning from each other and our mistakes and dealing with some pretty huge decisions that most couples probably don't encounter until well after five years. We're not the perfect marriage, we're still figuring out how to be husband and wife but as long as we're by each other's side, that's all that matters and in my opinion, I've got a pretty awesome husband!
