Happy 10th Anniversary!!!

June 21, 2002 - I married my best friend, gained 2 amazing daughters and gave my sons a wonderful 'dad'! This year we celebrated our 10th anniversary with a vacation to the New England area.  

On Tuesday June 19th we flew into Boston, Ma and explored the Freedom Trail. It was a great reminder of all that our fore-fathers went through to make sure we have the freedoms that we take for granted everyday. Then on Wednesday, we explored the state of New Hampshire and visited Ruggles Mine - the oldest mica mine in the world.  On Wednesday evening, I took my husband to Fenway Park to see his Red Sox and we sat right next to the Green Monster and saw Big Papi (David Ortiz) hit a grand slam!!! My hubby was like a little boy -- he was so excited to be there.  Then on Thursday, our anniversary, we drove up the East Coast of Maine and ate a quaint little restaurant on a  wharf and had fresh Maine lobster -- it was soooo good!!!!!!!  On Friday we drove up to Vermont to see covered bridges and also went to a regional tournament for Curling (as in the Olympic sport).  And finally on Saturday we went to the Red Arrow Cafe (as seen on Food Network's Diners, Drive-In's & Dives) before heading back to Boston to fly home.  Here are a few pictures of some of the highlights of our trips:

One of my favorite parts of our vacation was being able to see even more of God's beautiful handiwork - the mountains and the ocean are so breath-taking and I pray that I never grow tired of seeing their beauty!!!!
