Tyson and I recently celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary. 7 is a strange number, nothing monumental about it, but we have had a great time. I'm not going to pretend that it has been all wonderful, in fact much of our lives together are actually spent apart with his crazy school and work schedules and me taking care of the kids and trying to find sometime for my running (and sanity). But we make it work, and we are still happy to be stuck together. Because we do struggle to find time to be together, just us, we took a weekend off for our anniversary. We left the kids with my sister and brother-in-law and then took off for a local vacation.
During our weekend away we went for a lot of walks and hikes. I wanted to get some miles in, but Tyson isn't a fan of running so we compromised. It is kind of embarrassing, but as a Treasure Valley native I have never hiked Tablerock. We decided to check it out since we were child-free and it was a great little hike.
Tyson is always fascinated by the old prison. I'm sure that he is glad that he gets to work in a much more modern facility.
We had some beautiful views of Boise. It is clear why Boise is the city of trees.
It was such a pleasant weekend and we really enjoyed our chance to be just a couple again. Seven years, a degree (and almost a second, come on May!), three kids, and two dogs later and we are grateful for our wonderfully imperfect life.
