7 years of wedded bliss with 2 cute boys to show for it

This week was our 7th wedding anniversary and we usually don't get to celebrate it very well since it falls during Darren's busy season at work. But it just so happened this year that his firm's Mariners tickets came up for grabs on our anniversary and we got to go to the game. It's so much fun to watch from the 18th row! So our anniversary turned out very nice!
I am so in love with my husband. I am so happy every morning to wake up and know I chose him and even better, to know that he chose me!
But enough of that mushy stuff. On to the bragging about the kids! Here's a quick update:
Joseph is obsessed with firefighters and police officers lately. It's very cute. I'm thinking that's what Joseph and Justin will be for Halloween. Joseph fights fires and arrests bad guys all day long. I can't believe that he's starting preschool next week. It's three mornings a week and I'm kinda freaking out about losing my baby. It's pathetic, I know. He's also starting a soccer team with his buddies pictured below. He's very excited about that. So I'm anxious about our new changes. Not until we're empty nesters will we now not have kids in school with activities and schedules and obligations. I know it's just preschool, but we're definitely entering a new parenting era!Justin is just learning so much and into full toddlerhood. He's learning new words: ball, hi, bye, yummy, yucky, hot, and I can see his little brain processing the things I'm saying now. He'll bring me his shoes when I ask him, he'll show you his belly button when you ask him, and he can't hold still after I say the words "ice cream." He is also in love with cars and trucks. He drives them around the house all day. It's such a fun age, and yet, I've begun the nursery countdown because he pretty much makes church impossible. Just 3 1/2 months left!
I'm a happy girl to have these three cute boys in my life!

For some reason 7 years seems so much longer than 6. You guys have been married FOREVER!

Boy are we glad you married Darren!

Your boys are so cute! I am picturing Joseph arresting bad guys and it's making me laugh. He has the best imagination, he will LOVE preschool!

I can't believe it's been 7 years either, Happy Anniversary! I'm so happy that you guys were able to get out of the house and do something fun for your big day! We love you guys!

We should try and visit my neighbor at the fire station again while you guys are out here.

This is late but, Happy Anniversary! Your boys are so big and cute. It seems like it is easy for kids to grow up but hard for the mommies. Joseph will enjoy pre-K. Mia sure does.

I can't believe Justin is already saying so many words! And the count down to nursery already?! Justin will always be 9 months in my mind. Glad you had a nice anniversary, you guys are such a cute family!

I'm thinking Justin looks a lot like you in that last I right?
