Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls

Except we did!  So maybe not the best title for this post, but I couldn't think of another song with waterfalls in it, also, who doesn't love some TLC?

Harper saw a waterfall on Little Einsteins and ever since then, has been talking about them.  If we can, we like to let her actually experience what she sees on TV, it a little bit makes us feel better about letting her watch TV. And Ryan was in a weird spontaneous mood this weekend (Saturday we braved Chuck E Cheese for the first time ever, Harper LOVED it, Sawyer wanted to just go home and take a nap, after about an hour, I just wanted to go home and take a nap).  Anywho after we were all awake on Sunday, Ryan was like "Lets just drive to Snoqualmie Falls, right now." And we did, we threw on some clothes, piled in the sexy King Van, and off we went!

Harper was a little scared, but also a little loved it.  Sawyer is rarely scared, and kept trying to stick her foot and face through the bars so she could get closer (also so she could give me a heart attack).

She was pretty excited about the waterfall. Also super cute.

UGH!  Don't you just want to smoosh her face with thousands of kisses?

Alright, smoosh both of the faces

She was just trying her gosh darndest to fit her little face through those bars!

I LOVE this one, I don't know why, I just do!

I didn't actually read what this is.. but I thought it was a good photo opp.

I did actually take a few of the actual waterfall, not just of my children's faces

6 Years of Wedded...

I know normally you would put "Bliss" at the end of that statement, but according to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary (online of course, I didn't go actually find an actual physical book, stop being crazy!), Bliss is defined as - 1: complete happiness 2: paradise, heaven.  That seems a bit crazy to me, and a lot to live up to, so I've decided there HAS to be a better word to put in there.  Also have you noticed that all of the fairy tales end at the wedding or prior to it?  Like that's it, all the happiness is over, now its just on to boring nothing that isn't even worth putting into the story.  I think that after the wedding is a completely different to, a whole different life that has its own crazy ups and downs.  

6 years, sometimes 6 years sounds like a long time, but really its just a small fraction of our life together (notice I said life as in single not as in plural, because we have one life, not two separate lives, we are a unit).  I love that I have someone to share the laughs, stress, mess, and craziness with, every day.  Ryan King is 100% my other half.  While I am the most impatient, he exudes patience.  He is the quickest to forgive, when I am stubborn, pig-headed and can hold grudges even when I forget why.  When I am anxious, stressed and grumpy, is calm and collected, even when he gets the brunt of my anger and doesn't deserve it.  I don't think anyone else can deal with my crazy. 

SO that brings us back to 6 Years of Wedded.....????  I've decided on Complement, 6 Years of Wedded Complements, I'm sure it isn't grammatically correct, but I don't even care (stop judging me you grammar obsessive people!) Complement- 1: something that fills up, completes, or makes perfect 2: one of two mutually completing parts.  No, I am not saying that we have a perfect marriage, we fight and drive each other crazy like everyone else, but I think I am married to the perfect man for me, and as cheesy as it sounds I think we complete each other, and make each other better.

To My Husband:
There are so many things I should say to you every day, and I don't, and since I type better than I talk... here they are.

I still Adore you.
I Respect you, more than you will ever know.
You can still take my breath away.
You make me feel like the luckiest girl ever, by loving the girls and me unconditionally and being such a rock for all of us.

Happy Anniversary Love!
