We really enjoy hiking together and usually spend our Anniversary on a hike. Driving to our hiking destination we missed the turn off by about 20 minutes. We were so glad because we found a hike called, "primitive road". It truly felt like paradise. It was so breathtakingly beautiful. We hiked down a canyon with a running stream in the ravine. Once we reached the stream we played in the water for hours and never wanted to leave. We were the only ones on the hike all day. The sign before entering the hike said not maintained, hazardous to public use. If the ranger had not told us about this secret place we would never have found paradise. It truly felt like we had "paradise" all to ourselves!

A tradition we have done over the years is escape on a "mini" moon on our Anniversary! This year Wade whisked me up to the Pine Mountains for a romantic retreat. We spent two nights at the cabin. It was so fun to be there, "just the two of us"! The best part about the whole thing is that our kids are so independent, so that we can be spontaneous. Wade and I decided to leave, the morning of, we were already there before the kids could be told. I don't think they even minded. We weren't planning on staying two days, so when I called Laurisa to see if we could stay, I told her we were having too much fun and weren't ready to come home, she said, " You don't have to come home, you can stay." I'm so glad that we got permission!
