A Day Of Rememberance

So today we took our kids to the war museum here in Calgary in honor of remembrance day. We taught them about the poppy and about their great grandpas who fought in the war. It was such a wonderful experience and the ceremony made me tear up. I am so grateful for those brave men who fought in those wars and their wonderful wives who supported them, and for all they gave up for their country and for our freedoms... some even their lives. I am grateful for those brave men and women who are fighting today, for their efforts in trying to make a difference. I love this country and am so proud to be called a Canadian. I feel so blessed to have been born and raised in such a free and peaceful country and love our American neighbors and in my case, family members and friends, and all they do as well to make this world a better and safer place. I can't imagine sending my son or husband away not knowing if they will come back or what will happen, but am so grateful for the strength and faith those men and women had then and so many still have today. Below are some pictures of Nick's Grandpa Bridge (look like someone you know?) He was a veteran and a wonderful man, and along with Nick's Grandpa Larsen who was also a veteran and amazing man, we are remembering them today.
Lest we forget.


5 years and still going strong

So our anniversary was a month ago, but I still wanted to post. We've been married for 5 years and it's been wonderful! Don't get me wrong, we totally had our problems and fights, but our love for each other has never been so strong. Nick is so patient with me and I love that about him. He's like that with the kids too. A trait I'm working very hard on... And even though sometimes it takes him a little longer than others, he gets me! I feel so grateful to have him in my life and to be with such a wonderful person every day. He's always willing to work on our marriage and to keep it strong and I just love that about him. Anyways, I'm grateful for how far we've come over the past 5 years and can't wait for an eternity more!

Look at how cute he is! I just love that boy!
