Skip and I are celebrating 32 years together. Really we try to celebrate everyday by being the best we can for each other. On our actual anniversary (March 21st) I had to say goodbye and go on a choir trip to Atlanta. I'm back now and on Spring Break so we plan to take some extra time, to have some adventures together. We always like to go somewhere special away from our daily routines. Sometimes it's a day in the temple, but often we try to do an overnight trip away from home.
I'm not sure where we'll go this week, but wherever it is, we will be sure to learn something new, laugh a lot, have some good food, and enjoy being together.
We both love exploring new places, and trying new things, not just on our anniversary, but whenever we can. Here are a few away from home pics from summer and fall last year:
This is outside Gunston hall, the home of George Mason. Skip insisted on taking a walk down a hill to a river bank. I had doubts about Skip making it back up in the state of health he was in that day, but with prayers, and a lot of stopping and resting, he finally made it. It has interesting exploring that day, learning about George Mason, and the Mason Neck area.
Here we are at the Kennedy Center, hearing Lang Lang conduct 100 pianists (including one of my students) in two duets.
We love jazz music, and try to get to the sculpture garden at least once a year for the free jazz concert they have almost every Friday. On this day we saw the Dixie Power Trio doing zydeco, Cajun, and Louisiana Funk music. Very FUN.
This was taken on a summer saturday adventure at Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge. We took a nice flat walk that day to another river front.
