Gosh, it seems like forever ago when you guys were dating and got married. I remeber that one night BABY Conner and I spent the night at your place- Garin and you on one twin bed and Conner and I on the other twin. Conner gave us a all such horrid night sleep!! Remember that? Those were way back in your dating...{or maybe engaged} years... dang this makes me feel old just thinking of it!

It was so fun to read your memories- thanks for playing along, Bethany.

This photo of Garin kissing {who knows what?} is hilarious!! Hey- ya got him for worries eh?

Rich...ah Mr. Rich. I remember very clearly mom FREAKING out that he was black...and Rich really liking Garin as a GOOD friend :)

Well,I don't know what to say about Rich, other than that is the only reason I met him, was to get you two together. Only good friends would sacrifice that!
