Happy Anniversary 2007! Seven Years : )

Hello All! Well today is our seventh wedding anniversary. Time seems to go so fast, too fast at times. We went away to Traverse City, Michigan for our anniversary this past weekend. My sister, Heather, came to watch our children and she did a spectacular job! We have not been away together for that long in possibly the last five years of parenting. We had a great time. We attended a "snowshoe stomp" and a wine tasting tour on Saturday the 17th. The snowshoeing through the vineyards was great. In the pictures you can see the Grand Traverse Bay in the background. The "stomp" was very neat as we snaked our way through trails in the vineyard at Black Star Farms. We loved the fresh air, time to chat and scenic views of the Grand Traverse bay. We had dinner out that evening at a restaurant called Boone's Long Lake Inn. If you are ever in the mood for good Prime Rib and you are in the area we would highly recommend it. Just remember at Boone's they don't do "Heart Healthy" options. Overall it was a great time for us to reconnect, laugh and talk. Kelly says I talked for pretty much the whole drive to Traverse City and it takes us over three hours. So needless to say I got all my words out. We women just need that sometimes. : )

Yesterday we had visitors arrive a few hours after our arrival home. My mom and her sister my Aunt Debbie came to visit. Debbie lives in Washington State and it was a real treat to have them both. This morning we all went sledding at our favorite sled dunes again. We had a great time. The kids didn't stop. We were outside climbing the hills for about an hour and twenty minutes. It was sunny and about 25 degrees while we were sledding. It felt so fabulous. I was even able to remove my gloves and hat. Fun, Fun, Fun! God Bless you all - Crystal
