A Journey with Love and Laughter

Read about our family as we journey through life as a family, with siblings, school and spina bifida, and lots of fun and laughter along the way!

14 Years and counting

The summer of 1999 seems so close and yet so far away!
But June 22, 1999 saw two people who have known each other for many years, reconnect and start that going out together.
And we didn't know it then, but what we actually did, was start our life together.

Look at those fresh young faces.
All that energy and up for a good time  
A couple of adventures

You know how some people say that they found their soul mate.
What really is a soul mate? Something lovey dovey that people say when they are in love...

It means someone who will dress up because that is what you like to do
(He might not look happy - but he was smiling on the inside)

And dress in costumes for murder mysteries, not just once but many times

And of course when the kids came along, that didn't stop us from dressing up!

We enjoy together

And we have grown together

We have become grown ups together
(or at least give the illusion of being grown up)

We started as 2 people who found each other, started a life together
And then worked on a couple of other lives

We became a family together

And learned how to be parents

We learned how to face challenges

And found that we really and truly are right where we should be, with who we should be.
Because we really do work well together.
The optimist and the realist (and we switch back and forth between these)

Because in 14 years we have had a lot of fun,
We do silly stuff
And know that it is silly and fun, and we don't care
If I get an idea in my head, I know that if I run with it, Kyle will come with me

 We can be who we are, who we are meant to be, and who we want to be.

And calling each other crazy is perfectly acceptable and encouraged

So 14 years has brought us a number of changes
Because these kids just out having some fun together

Turned into a life together

Our 14 year anniversary remains with our lives full of love and laughter
