We Did It!

October 10, 2008

Chad & I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary this past weekend, by renewing our wedding vows on the beach at sunset. It's something we've always talked about that we would like to do, but never really took it seriously. I am lucky enough to have a very dear friend, Heather, whose dad has on condo on the beach at Gulf Shores, AL. She let us stay at the condo for the weekend. I totally surprised Chad, and kept it a secret up until the very last minute. My mom and I with Cooper, went down to Gulf Shores on Thursday night, to get settled. Chad & his mom, and Connor drove down on Friday afternoon. We renewed our vows on a beautiful beach at Gulf State Park, in Orange Beach, not far from Gulf Shores. The beach in front of the condo was beautiful, but the tide is so high right now, there just wasn't much beach left. It was wonderful, and the sunset provided a breathtakingly beautiful backdrop for our pictures. My most favorite picture of all is the one of Connor, standing there smiling, looking at his mommy & daddy. He looks so happy! I will try to share more beach pics during the week. The National Shrimp Festival was going on this past weekend too. It sure was a sight to see. I'll try to post some pics of that as well during the coming week. Hope you all have had a happy Monday. Take Care!

I love the pictures you selected. I think the one of Connor looking at you two with such love and pride is priceless! He will always remember this and I'm so glad you have the photos to help you and Chad cherish and remember the moments!

Happy Anniversary again!
