22 years!!! Hard to believe. I looked back through my photo files to find an old picture of us but even with all the scanning I've done I haven't scanned any wedding photos or pictures of us while we were dating. Need to do that. Have an idea for those photos, too.
We had our family portrait taken for the church directory last night. I can't tell you how much I dislike formal portraits. I don't think I ever look real. So, family, I know you want pictures of us, but you won't be getting Olan Mills version of us this year for Christmas. Maybe we'll get Angie to take pictures of us in a more natural setting. Maybe playing guitar hero or with scissors & glue stick in hand. That would be more "us". In fact, I told Glenn last night that I like the picture we take of ourselves better. You know, the ones where you stick your heads together, hold out the camera, and push the button. That's how we took the one above and it's one of my favorites.
We're celebrating 22 years today by heading down to Santa Cruz. We'll have our girls and an extra today but we're going to the beach while they go to the Boardwalk. We're planning a beach picnic and Maryanne's ice cream on the way home.
And, in keeping with the beach theme, I pulled out some pictures of me on the beach. Glenn took the one above. I think this was at Carmel. We're planning another trip to Carmel in the spring -- no girls going then.
The one below is actually at Santa Cruz. It was two summers ago when a friend tried to teach me how to surf. lol... not happening!
And that water is COLD!!!
