Jim and I left today for our anniversary trip. He flew in late last night from El Paso, TX after spending a week in preparation for mobilization. We enjoyed an early morning walk with Balt walking about 5 miles in an hour. I came home drenched in sweat knowing Balt won't get another good walk for a few days. While I showered, Jim made me breakfast. We looked through our 1995 Germany photo album, snapping photos of places we had been to and wanted to try to see again. We were on the road before 10am, leaving Erika in charge of all the pets. We listened to lots of music from early in our relationship. These next two weeks are about celebrating 30 years of marriage and remembering lots of wonderful times we've had together. We leave from Minneapolis tomorrow.
