our anniversary weekend

we had a lovely anniversary weekend together. ben had friday off so we went out to lunch with the kids at a pizza buffet then spent the rest of the day relaxing at home.
~ our scrumptious dinner ~
we decided to go out on saturday and celebrate instead of sunday, which was our actual anniversary. ben's sister and nieces came over to our house at 5pm to watch the kids and we went to independence for dinner and mini golf. about 5 minutes into our drive ben said "it's so nice already. no kids!" it's amazing how different a car ride is without kids!

we had a delicious dinner (can you guess where?!) which included lasagna, fettuccine alfredo, and chicken parmesan. after that we went to cool crest. they had go-karts, arcade, and miniature golf. we decided to just mini golf since they have 4 different courses! it was beautiful. there were a lot of trees and gardens among the golf courses, and the weather was just about perfect! we golfed 3 of the 4 courses and naturally ben won every time. but it was still a lot of fun! we each got a hole in one at the end, so we have 2 free games of golf. i guess we'll be going back with the kids!

waiting patiently on the people golfing in front of us!
there were so many different types of trees at the golf course. this one was my favorite. it looked like a green bean tree!

on our way home we stopped at big burger for ice cream. ben got a crunch blizzard and i got a raspberry cheesecake cone. YUM!!! doesn't it look good?!

sunday morning we went to church, came home and had lunch, and put the kids to bed. then we played a couple games. we hardly ever play games anymore so it was fun. and of course ben won again! i think i need to practice or become a little more competitive!

after the kids woke up from their naps we went out to eat and shopped for a few hours in liberty. we got home in time to put the kids to bed and play a few more games. then just like that the weekend was over. on to a new day, new week, and new year of marriage! happy 6th ben!
