Jared's birthday was on June 19th and originally for his birthday I got us a night away at a Bed & Breakfast in Colorado Springs. Well, as many of you know... he was in the hospital from June 15 - June 18! Needless to say he was in no condition to be going away for the weekend. I called the B & B and rescheduled it for the first weekend in August which also turned out to be our Anniversary. YEAH!!! It worked out perfectly. On Friday afternoon we headed down to the Springs and checked in at the B & B. After that we went to dinner at Red Hot & Blue. SO YUMMY!!! When we got back to our room we watched our engagement video as well as our Wedding Reception. It was so much fun to look back at all the good times. We absolutely loved the B & B, it was just what we needed. You will see in the pictures that it was an Old Victorian house from 1902. On Saturday morning we received the "Romantic breakfast in bed". What a delicious treat this was. We couldn't have imagined a better breakfast:)
After getting ready for the day we decided to head to the mall and look around. Ummm.... it was the most pitiful thing we had ever seen. Ya, it was sad. Anyway, on the way to the mall we stumbled across the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial. It was AMAZING!!! What a touching experience it was. Jared was in his element. I read a poem that was posted on one of the granite walls and I was in tears. So touching. After all was said and done we went home earlier that day than planned because we missed our little Garrison!
Last Saturday we decided to go to the mountains and we agreed on Rocky Mountain National Park. It was BEAUTIFUL. I wouldn't recommend going in August on a weekend though. Here is why... it is peak season and there are THOUSANDS of people there!!! There was nowhere to park and it was so crowded we ended up driving around for a couple of hours. We were able to get some pictures though. Garrison loved being outside once we got there. He wasn't too fond of being in the car for so long but he was a champ. We packed our lunches and loved being there and just enjoying time together as a family.

I can't believe 2 years ago today we got married. Happy Anniversary Honey! I love you. It was such a great day and I can't believe how fast time has gone. We have so many memories together already and I think we might just have to watch our wedding video today... corny I know but it's a must! It's fun to look back at what a fun and blessed day it was.
