Our day began with a great start… finishing going through all Dave’s papers, shredding a ton (seriously… we packed a trash bag full of paper shreds) and putting the rest in binders (school papers – rah rah!). Okay, okay, it wasn’t that bad. 😉 Dave did make me breakfast. 🙂

Anyways… we finished that “fun stuff” as soon as we could, so that we could go and do something that was actually fun. We were going to go to McCormick Creek State Park, but decided to save that until next weekend, seeing as it would probably be busy with it being memorial day and all. So, instead we decided to explore a place we recently learned of that is near where we live – Griffey Lake Nature Preserve….

This is the second hike Calvin’s been on and he LOVES it. This dog was born to be in the great outdoors!

The area of Griffey Lake we went to was a little more off the beaten path, the trail didn’t go to far until it veered away from the lake and became a bit unclear… so we didn’t go too far, we just turned around and meandered back, enjoying the pretty scenery.


This one you will have to click on to get a real good view… there were some people out on the lake kayaking and canoeing – something that we think would be fun to do some day.

Yeah, we’re just chillin’…

Ain’t he handsome?! He is getting so big already!

After a nice hike… we had one pooped pup. 🙂

All in all.. a fun day.

Here’s to one great year of marriage… and many many more to come!!

Anniversary Weekend – Friday night

Wow. Hard to believe its already almost been a year.

Monday is mine and Dave’s 1st anniversary. So of course we’ve decided to make it a weekend affair. Nothing fancy – just spending time together.

Right now we are off to use up one of the restaurant gift certificates I got from one of my preschool students at the end of the year. Then we will head over to water the garden and then come back home and I’ll give Dave a haircut. Maybe if we’re feeling especially crazy we’ll watch a movie. 🙂

Thats all for now,
