8 Wonderful Years

In February nine years ago Shiloh called me on the telephone and asked me on our first date. We went to a U2 Laser show at the Hansen Planetarium. We had a great time, unfortunately it took us another 10 weeks before we had a second date. At that point it was finals and I was moving to Oregon for the summer with a friend. When I returned we dated for another 5 months before we were engaged on December 10th, 1999. He proposed to me after we had dinner at the Roof. We were married in the Mount Timpanogos Temple on April 28, 2000. We went to Lake Tahoe for our Honeymoon.
He stayed at BYU an extra year while I graduated, his last semester he only took bowling so it wasn't that difficult for him. We then moved to Tucson where he attended the James E Rogers College of Law at the University of Arizona. I taught 8th grade until Emma came two years later. Once he graduated we went to Phoenix for a short time and that's when Sean joined us. When he was only 5 days old we moved to Cottonwood and he has worked for the Ledbetter Law Firm ever since. We also had our third child Ryan here.
Yesterday we celebrated eight years of marriage! He was called out to an officer shooting the night before and worked until 3 am. When we woke up we couldn't wake him up, therefore we tiptoed around all morning and I left him a Happy Anniversary poster. I went with the kids to the Prescott zoo all day, and he went to work. We did get a babysitter and went to Sedona for dinner at the Javelina Cantina. Which turned out to be absolutely delicious. When we got home I read the third book of Fablehaven until midnight and he went to sleep. Yep it's been 8 years and "I'm lovin him lots 'n lots."
