That's 3x5 Mom!

In other words we celebrated our 15th anniversary today! Benjamin was so excited that he exclaimed, "That's 3x5 mom!"

Jake brought me home roses. The yellow says 15 years.
We had so much fun celebrating. We decided to celebrate with all of the children. We ordered them pizzas from JS pizza and subs. It's a very affordable, quaint little business down the road from us. While the babes enjoyed their cheese pizzas we enjoyed our meal.
2 little rodents of the sea were our main course! That's right Lobstah's.
Yes, we splurged on lobsters. They were fun to have in the house for the day. Louisa made friends with the little critters and then she cried when we cooked them. Sweet girl.

We also splurged on a fancy bottle of wine. Newton Unfiltered Chardonnay. It was Awesome!! Thanks for the recommendation, Dad. To anyone coming up on a celebration. This wine was so smooth and full of ripe, yummy flavors. If you plan on eating a white meat or something from the sea you won't be disappointed with this wine. The price was worth it.
We dined outback on our patio where the smell of our lobsters wouldn't disrupt the sweet aroma of our home.

Looks romantic to me.

Sweet Hazel.

 After we finished our yummy lobsters, Jackie brought out our dessert. She made Pavlova. All. By. Herself. It was fabulous.
Thank you darling!

Check out Samuel, he couldn't take his eyes off of the strawberries. Don't worry Jake and I shared with the kiddos and Samuel Theodore had his fill.
It was such a sweet, sweet celebration! Happy Anniversary Darling. May we enjoy many, many more x5's....
