Zachary's 26th ( dang he's old!) Birthday BBQ

Last night we had a BBQ for Zachary's birthday. He turned 26 years old, and claims that all wisdom was gained with his new age, I guess we will have to see.....As Zachary's birthday was coming up it was a great time for me to reflect and focus my attention solely on him, and the reasons why I am so grateful to have in my life. Everytime I think about marrying Zachary I am absoloutley beside myself and feel so blessed to spend the rest of my life with him. Not only do we get the opportunity to spend the rest of our lives here on this earth together, but for eternity, which is well, Amazing. For those of you that know Zachary and myself both on a personal level you would know that we are quite an unlikely match. I am, I guess you could say uptight....? Zachary is probably my exact opposite, he is so laid back and ....easy. He couldn't be more perfect for me, he really is like my second half. Without him I think I would go crazy! Zachary always knows exactly what I need to make me feel good about life, and bring me back to what is really important. I can only imagine what happiness married life will bring me!! It was so fun to have all of our friends over to celebrate Zachary's birthday, it is those times that make me sad to leave Rexburg. I do have to admit I won't miss the weather, on Saturday we got up early to go to the Temple and it was SNOWING outside!!! Anytime it snows in May I think there is something seriously wrong! There are so many good friends that we have made here in Rexburg, it will be sad to leave this part of our life behind....... I think we will be coming back to visit every once in while( I hope!)

It's always sad to leave familiar places and friends behind, but there is always the opportunity for more adventure and friend-making in the future. You guys look really happy and good luck!

Zeekaroo! Happy Birthday...again! I hope you enjoyed our wonderful singing on your answering machine. Kari, it's so interesting to hear the difference in yours and Zac's personality, because you are probably more like the rest of his family than he is. We definetly have a lot to learn from Zac and his "laid back personality". I'm so happy for the two of you! Love Jo
