I love the kids, but not THAT much

So Nathan and I are still in the nursery, and we love the kids in there. But we don't love getting sick from being in there! I think this is the 5th time we have gotten sick from the kids in the nursery. And its the same thing everytime. Sore throat, tired, dizzy, etc. Your run of the mill cold.

We have the kids use hand sanitizer, we try not to have them put toys in their mouths, but to no avail. Any suggestions on how not to get sick? Any would be great, I can't be missing work every other week!!

Happy Anniversary Mr. Oppie!!!

Happy Anniversary Nathan! I love you so much, much more that I ever thought I could love someone. Thank you for the most amazing year of being married. I couldn't ask for a better friend, partner in crime, eternal companion, husband and future father to our children. You make me want to be a better women so I can try and be the wife you deserve. I love you so much and look forward to all of our anniversaries to come! Keep the adventures coming!

The Anniversary cake Edmond's Bakery made for us. We did our wedding cakes through them and this is their gift to us!

That's right! We went to Long Beach Washington this past weekend for our Anniversary. And what a great time we had! We left right from work on friday and got into Long Beach at around 10 pm.

Nathan thought it would be fun to drive on the beach. I said ok, but was really nervous and told him not to get stuck. So we are driving in the pitch black down toward the water when our car all of a sudden sinks about 4 inches. Yes, we got stuck in the sand. I then proceed to freak out even more after nathan tries to get unstuck, can't and tells me I have to drive while he pushes from the front. We finally got out, just shy of my starting to cry. I'm so weird.

The next morning we woke up and went to breakfast in town. While eating I was doing my usual of listening to other people's conversations and her a lady talk about the light houses. We went to the 'free museum/gift shop' and looked around for about an hour. It reminds me a lot of "Ye olde curiosity shoppe' on the water front in seattle, really weird and cool at the same time. While paying for the treasures we found, I asked the cashier lady about the light houses and she gave us directions.

This is the Light house at North Head. So cool! Its the first light house I have ever seen in real life. You can read more about it here.

This is a picture of this cool cove by the light house. We then went to the other light house on the coast called cape disappointment. It was nice little hike out to the light house, and had an AMAZING view of the mouth of the colombia and ocean. You can read more about the light house and cape here

Sunday before we had to leave, we drove down to the beach to take one last look at the beautiful beach and get some more pics. Look at Nathan's hair! It was so windy, but you can't tell because my hair was pulled back, so it just looks like he has really big hair.

It was a wonderful anniversary trip. We didn't have to worry about anything but each other and enjoying the short time we had to ourselves.

Spice in life....

Thought this was fun, I think it fits quite well.....

You Are Basil

You are quite popular and loved by most people.

You have a mild temperament, but your style is definitely distinctive.

You are sweet, attractive, and you often smell good.

May Day!!

Do you remember when May Day came around and you made something that looked like this?

Only 2 of my co-workers remembered doing anything like this. I remember making little baskets and flowers out of paper and giving them to my mom and dad. I wish I would have had more time to make some and give to family and friends. But the best I can do is write a blog about it and say

Happy May Day!!
