    Today I am celebrating the 10-year anniversary of being married to my wonderful wife, Karen. :)

    Before we got married, we had always talked about doing our first child's room in a Noah's Ark theme. Well, after we had planned our wedding date, I read the following verse in the Bible:

    Wow, what a coincidence! :biggrin We thought that was so cool.

    Karen and I married on a bright and sunny Saturday afternoon. After the ceremony, we went to the reception, which was held in her parent's backyard. After we cut the cake, a surprise rain shower passed over, drenching everything for 5 minutes... then left as quickly as it came. Afterwards, a rainbow appeared, which, as most of you probably know, is the sign God sent to Noah after he and his family came out of the ark.

    Now, that's just freaky! :ohmy

    And for the next two years, we saw a rainbow in the sky on our anniversary, the third and last one being a double-rainbow.

    :blink :biggrin

    There's a 20% chance of showers today. I *really* hope I am blessed with another rainbow. If I am... I'm takin' pics this time! :colour

    EDIT: By the way, we DID do Hayden's room in a Noah's Ark theme... I'll post pics later.

    EDIT2: Can only find a few pics of his old room - most of it is on video. Here you can see the rainbow going around the corner - the water waves went all around the room:

    Happy anniversary, AJ!

    No rainbows today... the rain never came. Bought Karen some flowers and a card on the way home. :) Kids watched a movie while I napped in the chair... a nice quiet evening. :)

    Life is good. :thumbleft
