17 years and Counting

Wow, I can't believe that we have been married that long! It seems like yesterday that we were getting married. I pulled out our engagement photos and our wedding album. Man we were skinny! And I don't think I have seen Colby's hair that long since Beaver dared him to die it black. I think back to the day that we got married, it was such a special day. I am so lucky to be married to the man of my dreams. Colby has always been such a hard worker and provided for our family. We have been through a lot in our married lives; 22 moves, separations (due to work), 3 kids, 2 dogs, 3 horses, 4 pigs, pheasants and chickens, extended hospital stays, surgeries, going to college, etc.. And we have lived to tell the story! I am so glad that we take the journey together.

Here's to many, many more years together! I can't wait to see what life throws at us next and to be able to grow old with you and sit out and watch the sunsets.
For our anniversary this year poor Colby got sick (so did Brock) so we went to dinner on Friday night and then on Saturday Colby, Me, and Brock went to the Hunting Expo. It was a lot of fun, they were geared more towards kids that the other Expo that we went to last month. Brock got to catch a fish, and we watched the dogs in the big pool. We then went out to dinner and a movie, it was a lot of fun to just be able to spend time with Colby.
I love you!

Happy Anniversary. I can't believe we are getting so old, I still feel like I am 18. And sometimes I act like it too.

Can youbelieve it has been that long. Robert and I are 30 yrs in April. Seems like yesterday. But I look at your pictures and think... we really were "babies" when we got married.

I Enjoyed the pictures and story Erika. After pictures like these it's no wonder Colby hates it when I take his picture. You really haven't changed much.
