Well, we made it through our first year of marriage! To celebrate we went to Branson together for the weekend. It was extra crowded because there was a car show there that weekend. We went to white water and there were lines to get the tubes so that you could go stand in line to ride the rides, but the weather was nice and we still had fun despite the crowds. Then we went on the Branson Belle, which is a showboat that goes out on Tablerock Lake. They feed you dinner and then there's a show and it was really fun. The food was really good and the show was really fun too. Unfortunately, I forgot to charge the battery in my camera before we went, so we didn't get any pictures :( Sadly, we did not even realize there was no battery until we tried to have someone take our picture. Oh well. We also went to the outlets, but just weren't that impressed this time. Then Quentin took me to get some ice cream at Maggie Moo's which is my FAVORITE! Unfortunately it traffic was horrible, so it took forever to get back to the hotel (we really are not patient people when it comes to traffic). We were both so tired from our busy day that we just layed around the hotel for the rest of the night. Sunday morning was our actual anniversary, so we saved our cake for then. Yes, we packed our frozen cake and took it with us! It was sitting in an ice chest all day, so the water and ice had soaked through the plastic wrap and the box to the cake, which did not look appetizing. Oh well, we really weren't expecting much from a one year old cake right? So we fed it to each other anyway (just a small bite) and then threw the rest away. It was a fun little trip and it's hard to believe it's already been a year. We have both grown a lot and I feel so blessed to have Quentin for a husband. He treats me so well and is very patient with me. I love him more and more every day and look forward to spending eternity with him! (Sorry, a little mushy I know).
