For our 11 year anniversary yesterday Daniel gave me flowers and a really sweet card. He wrote a list of things he loves about me and almost had me in tears on the way to church. I, romantic that I am, gave him a wheel barrow so that he can landscape the backyard easier. He really wanted one. In church we got to stand up and announce our names and number of years married, which I've been looking forward to for months. After church we took the kids and Shannon out for lunch at Olive Garden to celebrate the beginning of our family 11 years ago.
In the afternoon we went to hand out food with the bikers in downtown Denver. Shannon came, too. One of the things they were giving away was fruit snacks, Kevin's most favorite food. He was smiling and crawling up to the people and they were offering him their fruit snacks. The little charmer got offered 3 bags that I saw and Daniel says he gave Kevin a bag also.
Last night Sarah and Shannon babysat for us for a little while so that Daniel and I could go to a movie. We couldn't find the theatre and ended up exploring downtown Denver. While Daniel drove I took photos of the architecture and the sun behind the clouds. It was really beautiful. We ate dinner at CiCi's pizza since we had a coupon. Then we hung out at a bookstore with a Starbuck's coffee shop in it. Daniel, not usually a coffee drinker, got a "Java Chip" drink because he had been awake for more than 24 hours. I drove home.
