It was 29 years ago today Kevin and I married. Can't believe this much time has gone by so quickly and so many memories to reflect on in those years.

He was in the Navy just starting out with his sub schools in San Diego. He completed one set of classes on Friday, we married on Saturday and by Monday he had to be back in class starting his next set. So, there was no time for a honeymoon get away. That would have to wait until almost 5 years later when the submarine he was on while away on a Westpac (6 months at sea) would pull into Guam around Christmas. We had arranged for him to take time while in port and I flew out to enjoy a week on what for us was a tropical paradise. It was wonderful at that point in time to break up the 6 months of seperation the deployment created and finally get a belated honeymoon.

It would be just after our 10th Anniversary that our life with kids would begin and infertility struggles ended when Cameron came into our life through the blessing of an open adoption. A whole new world would open to us as we began the joy and trials of parenthood.
Today we will celebrate by going to a restaurant we both have wanted to try for quite some time. The restaurant is the Napa Rose. It's an award winning one that is located within the complex of the Disney Grand California Hotel. We've stayed at the hotel on a couple different occassions as a family, but haven't yet tried this particular restaurant. Am VERY excited about our plans!! Cameron will be holding down the homefront for us as we get away. Will post pictures of our time out tomorrow, but have some stock pictures of the Napa Rose to share today.
