14 years and counting

This week we are celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary and by doing so we are heading out on a trip to the southwest in our RV.  My husband and I don't usually exchange gifts for anniversaries, birthdays or even holidays preferring to set aside that money for our holiday travels either as a couple or as a family.  Traveling is something we both enjoy immensely and we try to take advantage of it whenever we can.  This will be our biggest trip in our "new to us" camper and we are hoping there are no more unexpected expenses with the camper and that we can enjoy one last camping trip before we have to winterize it.  We are already planning (and saving) for our trip next spring to Yellowstone National Park which the whole family is excited about.  

Here a look at how we have grown as a couple and as a family over the past 14 years.

We are not perfect but we are good for each other and plan on traveling together for eternity:)
