Anniversary Trips

Monday, June 14, 2010

We just got back from our anniversary trip to Sequoia National Park. Thank God for safe and fun trip. I'm originally not an outdoor fan { I'm probably still not} but I always remember one of the fondness memory I had with my dad was when we walked hand in hand going across a big river in a village in Indonesia. And most memorable memories I have with friends were when we hike or camp together {remember the Zion river hike, sisters}? :)) So that's the reason why I embrace the outdoor although I still dislike the bug, dirt, and soreness that comes afterward.

Our anniversary pictures throughout the years:
1st anniversary:

We had lunch at Napa historical train then went for a mud bath afterward, such a memorable and fun experience.

2nd anniversary:
We went to Zion, Bryce, and Arches National Park in Utah. We started to pray for a child then but in His perfect timing, God chose to trust us with Max four years afterward.

3rd anniversary:
We were busy helping Joan & Dien San preparing their wedding that we forgot about our anniversary. 

4rd anniversary:

We went to Monterey Bay Aquarium followed by easy hike at Point Lobos

5th anniversary:

We went abroad this time: Rocky Mountains, Canada

I was 6 months pregnant with Max. We just went out to eat somewhere...
We also just went out to eat somewhere I guess... I totally forgot. You see I have a very short term memory

And this year celebrating our 8th anniversary:

"In the covenant of marriage, God asks two self-willed sinners to come together and become one flesh - not in body only, but in spirit, in attitude, in communication, in love. It takes years and a very high price for two self-willed sinners to submit one another, serve one another joyfully, to honor one another, to edify one another - it's a lifetime challenge." Bill Hybels on his book: Fit To Be Tied
