Until Death Do Us Part

Pat read a study that people are happiest in their marriage before they have kids and after their kids are all out of the house! I don't know that I necessarily believe it, but it must be hard for those people without a strong support system in tow to really have time for one another. Pat and I celebrated our five year anniversary this past Saturday, and we did it the best way we know how, by being around all our friends and family. It wasn't about us, but that's the way it should be. Jackson had a birthday party at Peter Piper Pizza, so he got to do what he loves. My darling Gina graduated from high school and had a graduation party that afternoon, and we were able to be around the ones we love the most. I have to tell you about this party. For those of you who know me, I am a very SCHEDULED person. My kids have their snack at the same time, drink their beverages at the same time, sleep at the same time, etc EACH AND EVERY DAY! I know some may call me crazy, but it has given me a certain amount of sanity to survive the preschool/toddler years. So, no one would expect that we arrived at the party at 2 o'clock, only to stay until 8:30, way past my kid's bedtime, but we did. The kids had a FANTASTIC time at the Parise's house. Jackson "played" pool, Rock Band, and ate cupcakes. While Tyler managed to walk up and down every step in that house, and for those of you who have seen it, you know their are a lot. The time just flew by, and it was an absolutely PERFECT night!

The next morning we woke up to begin my very latest obsession. . .Mario Kart! It is FABULOUS! For those of you looking to invest in this game, here's a little review, the wheel that comes with the game is fine, but there is no need to buy anymore, you can play just as well without! I just adore video games. Good thing too because it is just a little too hot outside to explore the great outdoors!

Happy Anniversary! Here's to many, many more! and I agree with Pat, having kids is sooooo stressful on a relationship. so we've got what? another 15+ years to go before we're happy with each other again? : )
