One Year Down, Eternity to go!

So, this is a picture of us about a year ago . . .
And this is a picture of us now . . .
OK, so we look a little stoned and not all gussied up in this picture, but really not much has changed!

April 11th is our one year anniversary!  Because we both had Spring Break the week before (thank you, school districts, for making them happen at the same time!), we pretty much celebrated our anniversary all week.
First, we went home to Idaho Falls, and went to the cabin with Mom and Dad.  Casey was in Florida with the band, so it was just us!  It was a lot of fun, and kind of a special treat to be at the cabin with just Mom and Dad.  On the way up, it was blizzarding hard.  Chris asked if we could go snowmobiling, to which Mom and Dad said that there was probably no way.  Well, we got up there and decided that between sessions of General Conference, we should try it.  It was a blast!  We actually broke trail on trails in some spots!

We knew that we needed to get anniversary gifts for each other.  If you look up traditional and modern anniversary gifts, they are paper and clocks.  Instead, we decided to get each other sandals to help start out the summer!

After great fun in Island Park and Idaho Falls, we came home, cleaned our house, packed up, and headed to Salt Lake City for a couple of days.  We had a great time!  We went to the Church Historic Library, the new Deseret Book flagship store, and hung out at Gateway Mall for a while.  We went to the new Alice in Wonderland movie (fantastic, by the way), and had dinner at the Stoneground Restaurant in Salt Lake.  We got a groupon to eat there, and thought it was fantastic.  It's a little "hole in the wall" restaurant that is actually on the second floor of a building.
It was way cool.  We have a tradition at the Gateway of getting cookies to eat, because they are very good, and it's a lot of fun to do.
Then, on Saturday, we drove to Pocatello and saw the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo.  We met Mom and Dad and Grandma and Grandpa Davis there.  It was a really long trip (3 hours there, and 3 hours back), but a lot of fun!
That's the anniversary in a nutshell!
