10 year anniversary

Well for our actual 10 year anniversary we were in CA. As soon as we woke up, I told Jeff I had something special planned, and pulled out of our luggage, a pregnancy test. To our excitement the test came out positive. I hadn't started my period for a few weeks and suspected I was pregnant, but I thought it would be special to find out that news on our 10 year anniversary. We didn't tell anyone until later that night. I'll mention more of that later. After finding out this good news we visited Jeff's dad who was in the hospital and then headed to Disneyland and CA adventure for the day...thanks to family hook ups. Jeff's cousin, Lauren, met us there and spent most the day with us. She works there and had gotten Jeff and I anniversary buttons to wear on our shirts. It was fun to have a handful of people tell us congrats. The kids did everything they wanted, Space Mtn, Splash Mtn, Soarin' over CA, Screamin' and more. As if our day wasn't busy enough we met more family at the Angels baseball game for Mormon Night. The Angels won and we watched a firework show right after. The kids didn't nap all day and crashed as soon as we left the game. It was an awesome anniversary and later we had a date night without kids. The next day we went to Raging Waters with the Rueckerts and Juns. It was a bloody, hot day. We had fun, but I was starting my morning sickness phase of pregnancy and the heat wasn't helping. We have some funny stories for that day: Carl's Jr. waiting line, long wait lines, bathrooms closed, lazy river closed, drop out flashers, and getting free tickets.

 Towards the end of the day we're both pretty greasy from all the walking and heat of the summer.
