Ice Castles

I have been wanting to go up to the Midway Ice Castles for a while now
T took me as part of our week long anniversary celebration
(the best part comes this Friday)
We had a blast- he was so good
I would suggest NOT going on a Saturday like we did
 This was my view the whole time
love these two
 The outside of the ice castles
it really is amazing
 Our family picture- not the coolest structure in there but it lit up
 In the ice slot canyon
 The ice was so amazing
and terrifying at the same time when you looked up!

 We did lots of swinging- it felt so nice outside
 Hung out on Nana and Grandpa's soft carpet lots and lots
 Spent time with this crazy before he moved to Arkansas
 Santa visited- Navy was not quite sure. E just stared 
 Then they switched roles
 Mom had surgery- so I made the famous morning scones 
Not sure what Brandon is doing
 Christmas Morning picture

 E loved his rocking horse from Russia
 We  were spoiled
 E loved sitting in the middle and watching everyone
 Threw a baby shower

 Went to the cactus garden lights
Vegas tried so hard
not sure why we bundled E up so much- it was warm
 Container Park
 Loved seeing my sister and her little one, Navy. So cute!
 Proof Paige came and visited- they got engaged Friday
Yay for new sisters

It was so nice being in the warm weather!!!

3 years

Whew- we made it :)
This year threw us for a loop
Me working after baby
T working on a thesis
T's trip to London and Russia
PhD apps
but I have a feeling things will just get crazier from here

I am so grateful for our eternal marriage
that even when I feel like we are standing in a cloud of stuff we have that light ahead of us 

T is a very good husband.
Does Laundry and Dishes
He gets up with E since I work early in the morning
He is supportive of my dreams

(still obsessed with my dress and bouquet)

Love you T
