5 years, 4 moves, and 3 kids later...

It has been 5 busy years of marriage for Brad and I! This is a picture of us in front of our tiny first apartment at BYU when we had no idea what was in store for us. From Utah we moved to Hawaii, then Ohio, then Connecticut, then Oregon. We had Galla in March '05, Finn in December '06, and Paisley in June '08. We've kept life full of action and fun!

This morning (after Brad let me sleep in) I surprised Brad with an anniversary activity. We both like to workout, but rarely get to do it outside together because of the kids. So I arranged to have our good friend Christy watch the kids while we went for a jog. The "little loop" that I wanted to do ended up being 7.65 miles long! We had a great time talking and enjoying some time together, though we will be sore tomorrow. I am a lucky lady and I love my life with Brad. Thanks, honey, and happy 5 years!

Congratulations Maylin and Brad! We are so happy for you! I remember when we met you guys about 2 years ago. I was impressed by how complimentary you were to each other. You guys are great example of how happy marriage can be.

Way to go on your run! That must have felt great!

Hey, Happy Anniversary! I was thinking about you guys since I had it marked on my calendar. Not many couples would probably be thrilled about going on a joint run. But, I think it's awesome!

You guys just get cuter and cuter all the time! We miss you.
