Thank you for your wonderful opinions and thoughts on our 13th anniversary. I'm writing to tell you that we did what we usually do and that is go out and eat. But I chose the place "Olive Garden", my most favorite ever place!! And yes we took the girls with us, and our dinner conversation consisted of where we were going on vacation (by ourselves) so we had a little peace in that we had hopes of someday having a long weekend away with a little quiet, and I realize that may sound a little selfish- but you must understand that we live in a state with no family near us. Most people are blessed that they have close relatives near by that they can just drop their kids off on the spur of the moment or on a much needed night out. I have to say though as the days past right after our anniversary I got to thinking more and more that I'm glad my children were with me at that dinner, because there won't be a lot more years I'm sure that they are all little and all at one place at one time to celebrate this occasion with us- so I'm thankful for the chance to have them here while I can!! Here is a quick photo of Bill and I at the restaurant and one of my youngest, Katelynn, who loves to get dressed up and is always ready to smile for the camera!
