El Anniversario

I haven't had much time to reflect this weekend on one of the most major events of my life. It's been a year since my dad passed away. It was a strange sensation to come home after a anniversary trip remembering that that was exactly what david and I had done when we found him a year ago. We walked in the door to our house to see him "sleeping" on the couch. I remember smiling at David because the radio was on the oldies station and the dart board was up on the wall. He was sitting on the couch. I went to wake him. But he didn't wake up.I knew he wasn't going to when I didn't hear the tick of his heart (he had a mitro valve? replacement).  It makes my own heart beat really fast to remember the whole thing. I hated it. I screamed at him to wake up. But he wouldn't. He didn't look sad, or hurt or anything. Just peaceful. It's a strange sensation you know...to celebrate life and death all in the same weekend.

On a lighter note, my Pumas took 3rd place in our final competition of the season. Considering we lost a girl due to an injury, RIGHT before we went on (we love you Quiggle), 3rd place is much better than I expected. Well maybe not really since the girls are awesome. We spent the night in Harrisburg and it was a good time. A good ending to a long season. After that, being the crazy people we are, David and I decided to take a trip to Lancaster to see the Amish country. We then decided to go to Philly and then decided soon after that to go to Atlantic City (the Vegas of the East). It was a good time. Thanks to Jenny's mad planning skills, we got a hotel room for super cheap. In less than 24 hours we ate a Philly in Philly, saw the Ocean, went to a museum, walked the Boardwalk for miles (okay David pushed me in a wheelchair most of the way), ate at the Hard Rock Cafe, shopped, and drove all the way back to Lock Haven. It was a good time. Happy 2 years to us!!! I can't believe it's been so long. I feel super blessed to be married to the best man in the world. Really.

And now we're home. Back in the real world and ready to move on. Baby is coming soon. I felt him hiccup the other day for the first time. It's becoming kind of a regular thing. It's usually when I lay down for a nap (of course). He's a good one. And kicking away.

I love everyone. I LOVE Spring. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Spring. I can't say it enough. It's a new beginning.

I love you Dad.
