How long has it been??

Scott and I celebrated a pretty good milestone in our marriage back on May 28th. It's hard for me to believe, but we have been married for 15 years! It's been an amazing 15 years, and I feel blessed to have spent them with an amazing man. Originally, we planned for a trip to Italy to celebrate - Scott is anxious to head back to his mission stomping grounds - but we decided to put that on hold when we found out we are pregnant. (I didn't really want to travel that far while pregnant) So, we went for the next best thing - Gig Harbor, Washington, of course!!
Gig Harbor is about 2 hours from our home and as the name suggests, it is a little harbor town. Scott had a great time playing with his new camera (I'll put them up in a slide show next. He got some amazing pictures of the harbor!) This picture was taken by a very nice gal we met on the only public dock in downtown Gig Harbor. She was there taking pictures for her business, and Scott enjoyed spending time talking to her and getting pointers.
Below is the bed and breakfast we stayed at. Our room was on the top right of the house, and it was a nice place to stay. One of the best parts was the great dock right on the water. We enjoyed breakfast both mornings out on the dock, and it was so peaceful!
This is the view of the town and harbor from the bed and breakfast. If it hadn't been cloudy, you could see Mt. Rainier off in the distance at the right. The downtown area is also off to the right.
On Saturday, we did a little driving around and checking out some of the beaches. This is us sitting on the beach at Narrows Park. That's the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in the background. Scott had been to this beach for some fishing before, and we had a great time walking up the beach. You can walk all the way under the bridge - it was very cool!!
I have to admit - Gig Harbor wasn't quite Italy, but it was a great weekend away, and a nice way to celebrate. 15 years sounds like a long time, but I'm looking forward to many, many, many more years together!
