4 Tahun lepas...

4 years ago......we got married! (This is an engagement pic...no wedding pics on our computer:(
Soooo much has happened in those four years. We realize how much better we know each other now than we did then; how much more we're in love with each other now than we were then and in deeper and richer ways! In the past four years, we've worked our way out of debt together, moved to another country together, and become parents! (and so much more, but we figure if we survived financial stress, the stress of a foreign country, and a kid...those are the big ones) It's been such a great journey so far and we can't wait for the rest!

May 28th was the actual date, but celebrating this year came a couple days later.
The Law's so bravely volunteered to take Isaac for the evening so we could go to dinner in peace and enjoy just the 2 of us by ourselves. It was our first time leaving him with anyone, but everyone survived just fine:) It's strange to think just 3 months ago it was like that all the time!

This has nothing to do with our anniversary, but the Law's have monkeys in their neighborhood! We saw this guy after we dropped mini-man off...look at the cat. Wonder if he's sizing him up... that's scary business! Monkeys (especially the kind in the picture) can be mean!
After braving Friday rush-hour traffic we made it to our favorite mall. It's our favorite mainly because it has a bunch of good restaurants (read: Western Restaurants) and the ambiance is a good mix of laid back and lively... with lots of outside seating at all the restaurants.We indulged in an appetizer at an Italian joint, then went to Tony Roma's for some ribs (Beef ribs, this is a Muslim country so pork is a no-no). If Cara, Jason, Giles, Justin Allen, or anyone else that was witness to the waiter-atrocity at the Southside Blvd. Tony Roma's is reading this, know that I will never go to THAT Tony Roma's again...but... being in a foreign country where BBQ is usually Mongolian and western choices are a bit slimmer, I had to get over the pettiness of that evening. Anthony, being the romantic that he is (for real, he's the sweetest) asked me once we were seated if I was alright. HAHA!
I'm glad we went though...Because we got free dessert because it was our anniversary!

After it was over we both felt sick to our stomachs because of how much we had eaten. It was ridiculous. But... Happy Anniversary to us!

Ah yes...what a memorable evening! I don't know if that Tony Roma's is even open anymore - but I'm glad to see the forgiveness and growth there! Thanks for the shout out! Memories...
