On August 16, my friend Aimee turned 30! She had her party in Portland so as soon as I got home from Hawaii I flew to Portland to be with Aimee and my 3 other close friends, Mitz, Bree & Ty from college! Good times! I'm next to be 30 in February! AAAHHHH
We kicked off the beginning of August in style with our trip to Maui, Hawaii!! Steve's sister Erin got married on 08-08-08 in Maui and Xavier got to be the ring bearer! The trip was amazing and the wedding was beautiful! We stayed in a condo in Kihei right across from the beach. We needed just 2 more days to stay and it would have been just long enough! This was our first big trip with Xavier being a little older and he did great on the plane! I think we realized we can take a lot more trips now!
Our story begins back when we first met in September 1997, at Skagit Valley College in the gym....but our life as husband and wife began on September 4, 2004. We moved to Mount Vernon, WA where Lianna works as an advertising representative at MacGregor/Yellow Book and Steve is a Firefighter for the Marysville Fire District. Being newlyweds with little responsibilities is great, but life only gets better once you start to grow your family! On October 29, 2006, Xavier Lawrence entered our lives and every day since has been full of fun! On May 2, 2009 we welcomed our second child, Harper. She is such a joy and a great addition to our family! Your life is never the same once you have a child and that is for the better! We started this blog to share with friends and family our adventures and joys that life brings to us! Enjoy!
