Come with me on a little stroll down Memory Lane...
Rick & I have known each other since 2nd grade. We lived in the same neighborhood, attended the same Elementary School, and the same ward (church congregation).
Our Elementary School put on a school program every year, called the "Spring Festival". When we were in 5th grade, our class was outside practicing for our part on the program.
Rick asked me to be his girlfriend...
We broke up later that day.
In 6th grade, he asked me to dance with him at a school dance, and I told him NO!
I guess you could say we had a bit of a rocky start!
During our Senior year in High School, we had almost every class together.
Toward the end of Senior year, we got to be really great friends.
He was dating one of my friends and I went out with one of his friends.
Then he asked me out...
Our first date
We went to dinner at The Coachman's Restaurant in Provo.
Then we went for a round of miniature golf at Trafalga.
While we were on our first date, he asked me out to the Senior Dinner Dance at school.
Our 2nd Date: The Senior Dinner Dance
I'm still thinking were "just friends".
But we kept dating.
And that friendship just kept getting better and better.
Over the summer, we dated other people too, but by the end of the summer we had had enough of that.
The deal was pretty much sealed by then.
And after almost 6 months of dating, he finally kissed me!
(Can you believe that?)
Another school dance picture. Senior Ball, the winter after we graduated.
We got engaged on my birthday, February 1985.
Dance picture from Sweetheart's Dance shortly after we were engaged. I was taking classes at what is now UVU.
A year later: This is our engagement photo
I would love to do the photos from our engagement & wedding over!
(Oh my heck~ enough with the mullet and the big glasses, already!)
Gotta love the 80's!
And a year and a half later...
Our first family picture!
Happy 26th Anniversary to my forever BEST FRIEND!
