Our 22nd anniversary

On our anniversary we went out to breakfast with 3 other couples. We all started out on motorcycles, but ours started making bad noises, so we had to go get our car. Kind of stinks. It's going into the shop to get looked at on Thursday. Hopefully it will not be too expensive to repair. After breakfast 4 of us went up to Goldfield Mining Camp for a few hours. There is a gorgeous view of the superstition mountains from there. Everything is so green now with wild flowers blooming as well. I love it!Marks drinking an old fashioned rootbeer (he's so cute!)

I'm always amazed how big the cactus get.

I loved taking pictures of all the old things everywhere.

I took this picture for my outhouse bathroom. I bought a rustic frame with hinges. It looks great!

Yes, we did indulge in some ice-cream in homemade waffle cones.

There is so many cool rusted pieces of equipment. I took way more pictures than I'm sharing.

Mark's holding the camera :o)

He said he's ready for 22 more years of marital jail. LOL!

Another picture courtesy of Mark.

They have horseback riding available as well as jeep trail rides and underground mine tours. Oh...and a cute little train tour too. I love the train.

Mark got me Indian jewelery from there also. One set was tigers eye and the other was a pretty purple stone. I don't know what it's called. It will look pretty with my Easter dress.

After that, Mark had to go do one job, so sent me to get the making memories desktop carousel that I've been wanting for a long time. Who am I to argue with that?! I love how organized it is. I know where everything is and I can find it quickly. I love it!
It replaced this...I know these are popular, but it really didn't work for me. I will find another use for it.I also got the desktop organizer to keep my kits in as well as in progress projects. I put my trimmer, chalk, and poker mat in there too.
After Mark was done we met up for lunch, then went and sat on different bikes to see which ones fit my whole hiney comfortably. (this stop was for Mark more than me) He is always happy when he's looking at motorcycles. Then I got to feeling really sick. It was bad. We called it an early day and went home. I was in bed the rest of the day and all day Sunday too. I'm not feeling sick today, but my back is way out so I'll be heading to the chiropractor on Wednesday. I'd love to be able to stand up straight and take a breath without pain.'s always something, huh?! :o) I'll be 40 years old on Sunday and several parts of my body feels 80. That can't be a good thing. I've gotta get in shape. I shouldn't be feeling this bad at this age. Worries me.
Happy belated birthday to Pam!!! She shares her birthday with our anniversary. I hope you had a wonderful day!

I get the 40 feeling 80 thing. Well, we do come from the same family so maybe it's just the genes. I like the pic's. You and Mark actually looked cute and happy. Sorry to hear about the sickness. You will be well to go out with the sisters again on Friday so figure out what you want to do so we can have a plan. Love ya. Happy Anniversary.

What a fun place to spend your anniversary! The weather looks beautiful too. So sorry to hear that you and your motorcycle both got sick.....Hope your back is better soon. Thanks for taking the time to share bits of your life on your blog. You have a beautiful family and a beautiful life!

Happy Anniversary!!!!! 22 years, 5 kids, 2 grandkids.....that's just wonderful.

My husband is going to be 40 this year too. We got married when he was almost 30--that explains just having the one 5 year old (that and other obvious health related things).

Happy Anniversary to a very special couple. You look SO sweet together! One great looking duo. : )
I am so sorry about your back...I know that pain all too well. I am 51 and there are days I feel 90. The joints and not get me started on that!! *laugh*

I am so glad you had such a sweet day!

Happy 22nd Anniversary!!
The beautiful mountain is 1 of the reasons why we moved out here. Both kids schools face the Superstitions. Corey's school is up in it. It is so beautiful those wild flowers are everywhere!!!
