Welcome and Birthday Surprise

Hey y'all! Welcome to our little blog!

Here's a quick update on what we've been up to since Christmas:

Since the weather here has been beautiful and down-right spring-like, we decided to use our free passes to SeaWorld (one of the best parts of being in the military!) and enjoy the day. Warm weather in December + free passes to SeaWorld = A wonderful day.

This is actually an old picture... we weren't in shorts, though we easily could have been and a lot of people were. We never get tired of SeaWorld and the way it reflects our creative God!

Then my 26th birthday... Now closer to 30 than I am to 20... Sobering to say the least. Not really though. I'm excited about 26 and especially the new changes it is bringing - Baby Anderson!!!

Back to the day - It started out with breakfast made by my sweet husband, phonecalls from my parents and in-laws, and a cute card from my husband that said we would be going on a little adventure...

After lunch at the Cheesecake Factory (even better when you're eating for 2!), we headed for a drive downtown. Since my birthday is also New Year's Eve, the area was pretty packed with evening festivities already kicking off. My sneaky husband didn't say a word. Even when we turned on a road blocked off only for hotel guests, he said, "Maybe they'll just let us through." As it turned out, we were hotel guests ourselves!

The rest of the birthday was spent enjoying the Riverwalk, an evening boat tour on the river, and of course the New Year's Eve crowd and fireworks. It was a great surprise and one of the best birthdays ever!

Enjoy some pictures... and for those of you curious, this is what the 22-week baby bump looks like. :)
