Evan's birthday was the other day. (Cinco de Mayo) We had such a great time. The night before we had a spur-of-the-moment barbeque because the weather was so nice. If any of you don't know, we are bbq fanatics. If the weather is at all nice..."Let's have a bbq!" That was fun. Got to sit around and make s'mores at the fire pit too.

The next day, we dropped off the kids (Thank you Stephanie and Brandi) and headed into town. Months ago Evan purchased a two night stay at one of the hotels here in town at a silent auction at an event he was photographing. So we cashed it in and checked into the hotel. Then we became tourists in our own city. We ate at nice restaurants and saw a good movie. (Date Night is hilarious. I was crying I was laughing so hard.) We got to go to the temple. Did a little shopping. (Sportsmans' and Cabela's. It was Evan's birthday after all.) All in all it was very relaxing and enjoyable to be just the two of us for a while. It was nice not to worry about work or what needs to be done around the house or yard. We even got to sleep in a little bit.

So I just wanted to say thank you to Evan for having a birthday and for letting me be a part of your life. I am incredibly blessed to have you. I know that I drive you nuts constantly, but thank you for putting up with it and continuing to love me in spite of me.

You are the most amazing father. Your kids just adore you and light up when you are around. I don't blame them. You care so much about them and their well-being. Thank you for that.

I just wanted everyone (Evan included) to know how much I love him. My life has been so great since I met you. I'm not saying we've never had hard times, but through those times is when we really see how much we love each other.

Happy Birthday Evan!
