Happy 10 year anniversary!

May 12, 2012:

Here's what we did-

  • previous night dropped son off at Grandma's house (the farm)
  • got up early on a Saturday
  • rode our bikes to the Ottumwa Park (avoiding traffic)
  • walked The Race for the Cure 5K race in a little over an hour
    • hubby was proud of me, because I was able to keep his pace. 
  • rode our bikes back home
  • went out for lunch at Appanoose Rapids in downtown Ottumwa- yum! 

 Hubby's lunch. Yes, that is a burger sandwiched between 2 grilled cheese sandwiches!
 I had their Pork Tenderloin, no I didn't eat it all! :)
Beautiful example of what could be and should be in downtown!

  • Went to scrapbooking store Craft & Hobby Connection for a project I was doing- that's complete now, more on that another time. Yes, hubby went in with me- you know he really loves me if he went in there
  • Went to our first movie in a long time! Before 6pm, so we still didn't pay $8/ person. Yup, you guessed it- The Avengers

  •  Ended the day with a hot dog cookout and s'mores at the farm and also, we picked up our son (here he is being silly). 

  • Here's our 4 year old son (our only child) playing 'Captain Jack Sparrow' and Papa John and Grandma Shirley by the fire! 

Hard to believe 10 years has gone by since that cold, windy day at the campground where we got married! 
Time flies when you are having fun, though! 


  1. Happy Anniversary! Glad you got some time to yourselves, and my hubby has also tried the "chubby burger" at Appanoose Rapids! :) Yum.
