4 Years down, eternity to go

Joe and I are celebrating our 4th year anniversary today. Looking back at the last four years, we have accomplished a lot: two bachelors degrees, one BIG move, one and a half children, starting a career, 4 apartments (and a house on the horizon), BIG tests, and all the fun we have had. I picked four pictures from the last four pictures that represent what we were doing.
And how are we celebrating this very special occasion? Driving to Reno after Joe gets off work, romantic we know. But to Joe's credit, him and Blake brought me home roses the other night and Joe wrote some beautiful things in a card for me. How thoughtful! 
I'm pretty sure this was our engagement photo, we took so many.  Halloween 2005. We were both in YM and YW at the time and had a Halloween party to go to. We had to dress up but being the cheapos we were we didn't want to buy costumes so we wore Joe's Brasilian soccer jerseys. Fun times.  Christmas 2006. Two years after marriage our (then) sweet little boy was born. Oh how they change in their little lives.  I know we post this picture ALL THE TIME, but seriously it is the only picture of the two of us. Man it's hard to do that when you have a child. And with another coming there will be even fewer of the two of us. 
There are so many more things we can't wait to experience with each other in the next 80 or so years. The one coming up the soonest is the birth of our daughter. What a wonderful 4 years it has been, can't wait to see what is in store for us in the next 4.

Congratulations! Was the Halloween picture taken in the back of the good old Windstar? How many people are lucky enough to start their marriage with a minivan?
