June 25th marked fifteen years since Jason and I were married. It also signified the start of our family, and so we celebrated together with our children by taking a hike to Stuart Falls the Saturday before.
We fueled ourselves beforehand with a quick bite to eat at Burgers Supreme, then it was a short jaunt up Provo canyon to the trail head. The hike was a moderate challenge that was made more difficult with hot, dry temperatures, but we were rewarded with a cooling mist from the falls upon our arrival.
Once again I feel ashamed to admit that I have lived so close to such a lovely destination without having ever been there before. (I'm thinking I might need to create a "bucket list" of places I need to see that I should have already seen by now.)
After the hike, we stopped and got a shaved ice then it was back home for popcorn and a movie, Thor.
On the day of our anniversary, Jason's parents were kind to watch the children so he and I could enjoy an evening alone together. We ate dinner at Red Lobster then went to University Mall to do a little bit of shopping to pick out some anniversary gifts together. We splurged and got a Ninja blender, and now we are making fruit and vegetable smoothies to our hearts content.
So, with smoothie in hand, I raise a toast to the next fifteen years of marriage. I'm looking forward to it!
