Chris and I celebrated our 6th anniversary on Saturday.
Friday night Bennett had a sleepover with his cousins and Buck had a sleepover with his grandma.
We decided to grab dinner at our favorite mexican place Porque No
Here is an awesome picture of us standing in line:
 We got our usual Bryan's Bowls:
 Afterwards we stood in line for 45 minutes at our beloved Salt and Straw.
Chris got vanilla as always.
I got pear and blue cheese:
 While our ice cream digested, we booked it to the Fox Tower 
so we could go watch Moonrise Kingdom.
It pretty much started at our normal bed time, though we wanted to make the most of our kid-free night. 
I amazingly didn't feel tired the whole movie, but ended up falling asleep the last five minutes.
I hate it when that happens.

Saturday morning we woke up at the glorious hour of 9:00.
We knew that we'd have at least an hour wait for breakfast at Screen Door, so we decided to get some pre-breakfast at Coava and eat it while we waited.
Such a good idea, because I'm pretty sure our stomachs would have eaten themselves.
 Once we were finally seated at Screen Door, 
I ordered the red velvet pancakes with cream cheese whipped cream: 
 Chris got ham, eggs and potatoes and we split a giant bowl for fruit:
 When we were done eating our waitress let us know that a couple who just left had paid for our breakfast. It was the sweet couple that we were talking to while we were waitng, and it was her birthday.
We were speechless at the kindness of these strangers, and I'm pretty sure we kept saying "oh my gosh" and "that it so nice" and "I can't believe they did that for us" the entire time we were eating!
This is us happy and full:
 After breakfast, we walked around Schoolhouse Electric:

 and got some more coffee at Ristretto while we browsed:
 I'll take one of each:

 And then of course we went to the photobooth:
 we then picked up our sweet boys who were completely exhausted:
(he fell asleep as soon as soon as we pulled away!)
We missed their sweet faces:
 On Sunday we went to our giant church picnic.
It's the one time of year that everyone is in one place at the same time.
It's crazy to watch it grow, even just over the last three years:
There were a lot of fun games for the kids.
Bennett had fun in the bounce house and playing a life-sized version of Angry Birds:
 In the evening, Chris played key bass for the concert:
(You can barely see him in the back/right)
(The guys played through the new Synthesis cd, 
which is Solid Rock's new/awesome/funky worship album...check it out here)
This picture is from earlier in the week but I had to post it because Buck is so darn cute:
(who doesn't love a freshly washed baby?!) 
This is random but I must share...all you girls that like to wear your hair in a bun, 
go get yourself some Spin Pins!
I know it seems super cheesy (remember the topsy tail?) but they are so much easier than messing with bobby pins!

That is all.
Happy Wednesday Friends!

    I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who falls asleep during movies in theatres. It drives my husband insane!

    I still haven't had a night away from Pearl yet. Jeremy keeps suggesting doing something like that, but I think I would just be stressed out the whole time. Seeing your getaway definitely makes me want to try it though. A break like that looks pretty nice!

    I love you and your family. You are such a fantastic mother and such a fantastic wife. I can tell you cherish and delight so much in all the LORD as given you. Thanks for being a great example.
    Love, Anna

    Happy Anniversary!!! What a fun and full date you two had to celebrate! If they still have it, tell Chris to try the olive oil flavor at Salt&Straw - it has a classic taste profile without being exactly vanilla (and they'll split a scoop for you two if he can't do completely without vanilla) ;)
    P.S. I did purchase those spin pins after you showed me them and I must say, I took your word for it though I didn't understand how they could work UNTIL I put them in, I love them! I still have some layer growing out to do become I can exit the house confidently with them in :) but I was surprised at just how much hair they did hold even with my varied length locks.
