Yesterday Jason and I celebrated six years of marriage. How did you celebrate?, You ask.
I can answer that question for you.
After church we went out for lunch at Casa-one of my favorite Italian restaurants. Let me put my list of favorite Italian restaurants in order.
#1. Maggiano’s.
#2. Biaggi’s.
#3. Casa/Olive Garden.
I’m allowed to have 2 choices for my number 3 because this is my post and I’m the boss. I asked our server at Casa if she would take a picture and she tried to for about 2 minutes before we realized that the picture mode was turned off and the video mode was actually on. So we changed that and the picture to the right is the result. Pretty good looking group aren’t we? The remainder of our time at Casa was spent eating, talking and listening to Dawson do this:

After lunch we went to Delt Church Park to celebrate my nieces birthday. We arrived before any of my other family members (I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned here before that I have 2 sisters with chronic late syndrome) so we took Dawson over to the playground to play while we waited. I’d like to take the time to mention that very wealthy Amish supplied the funds for said playground and I haven’t come across a nicer playground in my life. I would also like to state that the next story about this playground will not result in my suing of any Amish. But I may sue my husband. Jason got on the merry-go-round with Dawson and I pushed them. This merry-go-round was quite slow, and all the muscle I have couldn’t get them pushed around fast enough to make either Jason or Dawson happy. So Jason had me get on and Dawson sat on my lap. Jason started spinning us. We weren’t spinning very fast so I got a little cocky and let my guard down, thinking “hmph, he thinks I’m wimpy…look at us!” And the next thing I know I’m yelling “OH MY GOSH!” And Dawson and I went flying off the merry-go-round. Dawson landed on top of me and wasn’t hurt. Though he did turn and look at me like I was the biggest betrayer of all time. And that is the story of how I actually fell off of a merry-go-round on my 6th wedding anniversary at an Amish playground.
Happy sixth anniversary honey.
Bow chicka bow-wow
