My first anniversary was a blast. We made the ride down to Gastonia to see the folks. Luckily we made it in time to see Grandma and Grandpa Brown for a bit. Virginia had her Father's Day card in hand for Grandpa Ford. He was all smiles when he saw Virginia holding the card. Virginia managed to resist eating the card for maybe a minute. After getting settled in, Mom and Dad were super nice and agreed to watch Virginia while Reiggin and I enjoyed a night out. I forgot how nice it is to have a dinner with Reiggin and not have to stuff food down my throat before Virginia gets wild. We decided to go to Olive Garden. Man the food was awesome and enjoying a meal baby free with Reiggin was even better. I did feel a little strange like I was missing something without Virginia sitting beside me. After stuffing our faces we checked in with the folks to make sure Virginia was good. I know I am so paronoid it is sad. She was fine and enjoying a nice rock on the porch with Mom. We headed on up to the movies to get tickets for The Hangover. We decided to kill time and go to Walmart. I just can't help myself in Walmart I go straight for the baby section and the toy section. Reiggin laughed at me and said on our anniversary we are looking at baby toys. The movie was great I had not laughed so hard in a theater in a long time. After the movie we made a quick stop at Krispy Kreme for some yummy doughnuts. That made for a nice end to our anniversary day. We picked up Virginia and luckily she was playing happily in between Mom's legs. So with sleepily eyed Virginia snoozing in the back seat while we rode home I thought to myself I am one lucky girl, beautiful daughter and a loving husband.
