One Happy Day!





April 15th marked the end of tax season which means that we are a family again! Well, we have always been a family, just never really saw daddy/hubby! I feel more sorry for Aaron because he was the one working his be-hind off, AND never got to see us or have a minute to himself! This is what we did to celebrate the day! Aaron got off of work around 4 and then I dropped the kids off at our friends and I met Aaron at the hotel to have a YUMMY buffet dinner (along with all of his co-workers). It is nice to be getting to know some of the people he works with a little better. He has worked there for about a year and a half now, and that feels good! We pigged out on prime rib, salmon, chicken all kinds of salad, stuffed mushrooms, cheeses, and chocolate mouse cake or cheesecake for dessert! There was also an open bar so we got to see lots of people getting "wasted." Over all it was really fun and extremely yummy! We didn't get to stay over night, well, we could have for $200/night. NO thanks!

The next day Aaron had the day off so we ran errands such as; getting our drivers licencses renewed (which consisted of waiting in the DMV for an hour) then we went to a fly shop, got smoothies (SOOOOO DELICIOUS!) went to Value Village, and Fred Meyer. I know it doesn't sound too fun but trust me it was! I usually run errands every day but never with Aaron, so that made it WAY better! He even got to go to the driving range and hit few balls around! He had to work today again (sigh) but are glad we will be seeing a lot more of him! Welcome home my love!!!!!!

I also wanted to give a shout out to EVERYONE who helped us get through the busy season. Seriously, I couldn't have survived without my friends here in Spokane, all the people who called to check on me (and Aaron) and all the people who gave kind words (on the blog, or email etc). It all helped and meant so much!!! You all ROCK! Here are some pics of us at the party and Aaron being...well...himself sitting with Mr. Davenport. Aaron also bought me 3 dozen roses...so thoughtful and pretty!

Congratulations! I am glad you guys had a wonderful reunion. You'll have to tell me how you made it through without your hubby for so long. Isaac's 4th year is going to be like that. Hopefully I can be as strong as you. Two kids and no husband sounds kind of scary, and hectic.

Yeah!!I am glad that you got your husband back! I guess this will become a yearly tradition of losing him for a while then getting him back. Like finals in school...except a little longer. The food sounded so good. It might be the pregnancy talking but I know you understand that. Have a great day!
