6 Years

April 22, 2000 Today is Julie and I's anniversary. It's hard to believe we got married 6 years ago. Actually, looking at Abbie and Jack, it's easy to believe it's been that long - they grow up awful quick. The fun part about this day is reflecting back on our wedding day. We got married in West Palm Beach, Florida - and had quite the turnout. It was a "destination wedding" as they call it, and we had friends and family fly in from all over the country. We made everyone fly down early (Wednesday) and had a golf tournament, went fishing on Julie's step-dad's boat, and lost money on a gambling cruise before our Saturday wedding. It was so much fun that we've been trying to think of an excuse to do it again.
