gallamore west: 10 years of love

10 years of love

10 years went by crazy fast...

When we first got married, we said we would go to Europe for our 10 year Anniversary.  I dreamed of our romantic vacation for two in Italy.
 
But that was before 
the boys
the bills
the job
the daily life we live
and today I can't imagine leaving my boys for a vacation.  An overnighter somewhere local... yes please!  But traveling around the world on an airplane without them, I can't even breathe just thinking about it.

So for our 10 year anniversary, we went to our favorite local restaurant {Casa Guadalajara} in Old Town, San Diego.  We had our Rehearsal Dinner the night before our wedding here.  


And yes, we brought our three boys with us on our date.  And our normally "easiest baby in the world" is totally crying in this picture.  

After our romantic dinner for five, we planned on going to Sea World for the night time summer fun and fireworks, but Luke was fussy so Ben took him home and I took our two older boys to Sea World.  

And they thought I was really cool because I bought them cotton candy and I NEVER buy them cotton candy.  But it was our 10 year Anniversary, so I did :)  And they shoved the whole thing in their mouths in 2 minutes flat and their hands were so sticky and we didn't want to lose our good seats while waiting for Shamu so we wiped their hands on Jake's sweatshirt... {mother of the year award, right?!}

Isn't that the weirdest anniversary celebration ever?  

Yeah, we thought so too... but it's just real life.  And while it's anything but perfect, I love "us" just the way we are.

{Although who am I kidding?  Next time I get my hair done, I want it that blonde again.  And I'll be crossing my fingers and toes that it will magically make my waist look like it did 10 years ago too!}

Happy 10 Gallamores! Sounds like the perfect night in my book too! And the blue Cotton Candy was the cherry on top! Adorable!

Jen said...

Sounds perfect! I always tell the boys that our anniversary is the day our family started, so celebrating with the whole family is totally perfect. ;) Plus, crying babies and cotton candy messes are where the last 10 years have brought you, and who would change that, right?

Happy anniversary!

Awe! Happy 10 years!! And look at all you have to show for it!

For our ten year we took the kids to San Diego as well. We splurged and did the dine with Shamu. When you have kids sometimes it's about the two of you and sometimes it's about the family unit. I wouldn't trade that anniversary day for anything. Congrats on hitting double digits!

Jennifer said...

Congrats on 10 years! I'm working on 4! :) Beside a fussy Handsome sounds like it was a perfect way to celebrate!

I think that what you published made a bunch of sense.

However, think about this, suppose you added a little content?
I ain't suggesting your content is not good., however what if you added a post title to possibly get folk's attention?
I mean "10 years of love" is a little vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo's front page and note how they write post headlines to get viewers to open the links. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about everything've
got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little
bit more interesting.

I have always disliked the idea because of the
costs. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using
WordPress on various websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
I have heard very good things about blogengine.

Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and
engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently
about. I am very happy that I came across this in my search for something regarding this.
