Anniversary Adventures

Seven Years!

Yesterday was our seventh anniversary. It was a lot of fun and always full of adventure. On Friday we went to Boise and left McKay with his aunt and uncle. We went to the Boise Temple, which was a great experience. Then we went to a Barenaked Ladies concert. It was outdoors so we got to sit on some grass in 102 degree weather. A little hotter then I would have liked but you know, we don't have any control over that. We also went to see Man of Steel after the concert. It was a late night full of fun things.
Yesterday when we were coming home we ran out of gas on the interstate. Yup. lame. I had seen before we left that we would need gas at some point of our trip and then I forgot about it. I was starting to fall asleep when Matt said something was wrong. I instantly remembered the gas. Oops!
The last time we ran out of gas on the interstate was 7 years ago on our wedding day. What are the odds? Happy Anniversary to us. At least last time it was because Matt's car had a gas leak somewhere. This time was completely our stupidity of forgetting to get some.  Anyways, we rolled to a stop, which just so happened to be near an exit and Matt ran to the gas station. As I was sitting in the boiling hot car I heard a loud pop.  I looked behind me and there was a van and their tire had blown. They pulled in front of our car and started working on their tire.   Matt got back with the gas [after having to buy a $20 gas can] and then we gave some of the people a ride to the gas station so they wouldn't have to wait out in the hot sun.
It was an adventure and in a very random way we were able to serve others. It felt good.
It's been a fabulous seven years and I'm excited for many more to come! Next anniversary we'll try to make sure we have gas in our car. Lesson learned [maybe].
