Chris and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary on April 18. I think a happy marriage is the best gift we can ever give Alex. It's so important to take time to spend with just each other and in that spirit, we were very excited to have Nana and Grandpa (aka Mary Pat and Jay) come down to visit the weekend before our anniversary!
That meant we could go out for a nice, baby-free anniversary dinner, right?
Nope. :) We fully intended to, but Saturday evening rolled around and we were too tired to leave the house. Oh well! We so enjoyed just visiting with Chris' parents. It was great to see y'all!
I ended up having to take Al to the pediatrician due to some unexpected hives on our actual anniversary, but we were able to have a nice dinner nonetheless. And don't worry, Alex is totally fine!
We always make something Cajun or Italian for our anniversary, and this year we went Italian. We've finally really started making fresh pasta. And it's DELICIOUS. We also made homemade vodka sauce, which is so yummy and spicy, even though we never actually had it while on our honeymoon (it's an Italian-American dish).
|We're even wearing matching sweaters. I guess that happens when you've been together almost eight years. :)|
I picked up some dessert from Varano's Bakery in Bethel. Cheesecake and cannoli pie, both excellent but the latter was definitely my favorite! And, of course, a little wine. See my tiny glass? That's my breastfeeding-momma sized portion. :)
And I just can't sign off without a cute picture of my boys. Loves of my life!
