As you know, Sunday was Mother's day and even though we didn't get to visit with either of our moms that day, we hope they had a nice relaxing day! Although knowing our moms they were probably busy with a number of things :) Thanks for being such great moms and we hope to see both of you sometime soon!
Then today, Joe and I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary.
It doesn't seem like a year has gone by since we were married but I guess time flies when you're having fun! We didn't go out to eat anywhere, but Joe did grill some delicious steaks for us!
The traditional gift for first wedding anniversaries is paper, so I got Joe tickets to see a stand-up comedy show. The comedian was Aziz Ansari, who you may know from the NBC comedy, "Parks & Rec". The show was at the beautiful, historic Midland Theater in downtown Kansas City. Aziz was great and we were cracking up laughing the entire time. Joe's 'paper' gift for me was a packet of blank photo paper followed by a...Canon EOS Rebel T3 DSLR Camera!!!!!
I'll just go ahead and say that Joe is way better at picking gifts out than I am. Or maybe I'm just easier to buy for. There will be a ton to learn about using this camera but I'm ready to figure it out and start taking some awesome pictures. We've already taken a bunch of pictures tonight and it is amazing at how great the pictures are even when just used in completely automatic mode. Here's a little sampling of pictures we've taken so far.
|You know Joe had to get a picture of his grass. It really is nice grass :)|

That's it for now. Have a great week!
