Twenty Years

It's been twenty years since we said "I do."  

Go ahead, have a laugh on me.  

The timing wasn't right for a lengthy getaway so we went
biking on the C&O canal trail.

Since my kids have done hardly anything except bicker since we finished school
 for the year, it was a relief to spend the day with...

Did you know turtles don't bicker, talk back, or snip at their siblings all the live-long day?

I digress.

The trail included a canal,

the Potomac River,

and the paw paw tunnel.

which is a 3,118 feet long canal tunnel - quite creepy, without any lighting, a drippy ceiling, and an uneven path.

(I swiped this pic from google.)

See that light waaaaaaaaaay at the far end?   It stays that size for a long time.

After arriving at the other side we turned right around and walked back again to scarf our lunch. 

We ate subs we picked up at Davis' favorite bistro - Rick's gas station.
Quite the romantics, eh?

Kenton's highlight of the day was our stop at this former aqueduct.  

Did you know this was an aqueduct?

I didn't.

Kenton did.

To quote the farmer in the dell,

"It may have taken 20 years, but I was right once!"

He's got the map to prove it.  

Here's to another twenty, babe!


  1. Aw. What a sweet day! Just being alone is special when you have a load of kiddos. Love the wedding picture. You look like Megan. I love the picture of you two at the end. Beautiful and relaxed. Happy Anniversary!

  2. Wow! Congrats! Look at how much hair everyone has! Was just laughing thinking of our canal biking experience...rattle, rattle, drag, scrape scrape, rattle...as you dragged Davis' poor little bike all the way down the trail.....oxo

  3. Happy Anniversary you younguns!!! Paul and I went to Hancock, MD on the C and O to bike a few years back on our anniversary...needless to say, it was quite memorable cuz my bike hit a patch of gravel and spun me out and busted my knee! Fun times! Congrats you 2 kids! Hope to see you in August!!! <3

  4. Sorry I'm late, but happy anniversary to two amazing people!! Love you guys a lot. May God continue to bless you & your marriage.
