Year 4

Today marks 4-years since Brad and I walked down the aisle and made our marriage official in front of family and friends.
It's been an amazing ride and it's fun to see just how well Brad and I have both morphed into our role as parents this year.
It's so fun and we both treasure every single moment when it comes to parenting.
Both the big and small.
Year 4 has been one of the best and today I would like to highlight just a few of my favorite moments for us as a couple, and as a family.
In May, we attended one of our absolute favorite events.
The LSU Alumni Annual Crawfish Boil.
It was Shelby's first year and we loved being able to show her off!!
And, of course, I loved being able to dress her in all things LSU!
Shelby's first boat ride.
Look at what a proud Daddy!
Baptising our daughter.
Very special for us.
Year 4 was the year we bought our first camper and enjoyed many trips making memories as a couple and a family.
We can't wait to make more in year 5!!
Our first family beach trip.

As a couple, we enjoyed a fabulous week long trip to the West Coast.
A highlight for me was getting Brad to bike the Golden Gate Bridge as I had always dreamed of doing.
He wasn't happy at first, but enjoyed himself when it was all said and done.

We celebrated Shelby's 1st birthday with a Winter Wonderland!!

Christmas with an energetic toddler running everywhere and excited about gifts.
Year 5 will be even MORE fun for this!

Last but not least another trip to the beach as a family except this time in the Winter.
A first for us all, and it was such great quality family time.

Today, we enter year 5 of marriage and I'm excited to see what it brings.
I'm thinking it will only get better from here.

Yay, I'm one of the 100! I forgot you went private and I had an invite...that's why you weren't in my blog roll.
So, congratulations on the anniversary! Look at that sweet boat ride face, adorable! You look beautiful in coral, the whole family looks great. I need one of those bonnets for H.G. when we go to the beach house this summer (yes, I know we live at the beach already but this is a different beach ;) Look at that Christmas fun! H.G. had that same little Christmas romper, so happy! Have a wonderful year 5!
