A lot of people have commented that we look too young to be retired. Most of them have been too polite to actually ask our age!
So, since today is our 29th anniversary, I thought I would show some pictures and tell you a little bit about our past.
January 4, 1980 - our first date
January 4, 1983 - our wedding day
January 4, 2012 - our 29th anniversary
Way back in 1979, Mark and I were both working part time in the evenings at Sears Automotive (I was a cashier and Mark worked in the parts department). Mark was going to UT full time during the day and I had a full time state job during the day.
Our first date was on January 4, 1980. A couple of years later we decided to get married after Mark graduated from UT.
When deciding on a wedding date we thought January 4th had been a very good day in the past, so, that’s the day we picked!
We were married in front of the JP on January 4, 1983.
We bought our first RV in October of 1998. Our second RV in March 2001, and our newest RV in December 2011. During that time we took many, many, many vacations!
We both retired on the same day (March 31, 2010) and have been having a wonderful time traveling around in our RV!
Here are a few pictures of our adventures! (Taken after we bought digital cameras).
Trinidad, West Indies
Tobago, West Indies
Belize City, Belize
Cedar Breaks National Monument, Utah
Canopy Tower, Panama
Shenandoah National Park, Virginia
Big Bend National Park, Texas

I had a lot of fun looking back at all our pictures. It was really hard to pick just a few. One of these days we'll have to get our "before digital" photos scanned. Hope you have enjoyed our trip back in time.
