Unbeknownst to The Boyfriend, I recorded this cover of Adam Sandler’s “Grow Old With You” from the 1998 movie, The Wedding Singer. Then, on our 9-year anniversary, uploaded it to Facebook (so that he would see it!). And the lyrics are so true for us!!!
I wanna make you smile whenever you’re sad Carry you around when your arthritis is bad All I wanna do is grow old with you
I’ll get your medicine when your tummy aches Build you a fire if the furnace breaks Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you
I’ll miss you Kiss you Give you my coat when you are cold
Need you Feed you Even let ya hold the remote control
So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink Put you to bed if you’ve had too much to drink I could be the man who grows old with you I wanna grow old with you
A few nights back, Kaeidyn decided she wanted to do karaoke.
We recently discovered Sing King Karaoke on YouTube and we’ve all been a little obsessed. After a couple songs, I started recording her. We’re nearing the end of the hour long session here, but she insisted, “Mom, you be the guy!” – and so…
I always love when she’s listening to music and singing. Even when she listens to her annoying music. I love that she’s musical. It’s the one area we can really connect. When she picks up the guitar, when she listens to music, when she sings karaoke, I love it so much!!!
Last night, The Boyfriend’s sister called and asked if we’d like to go to Gull Lake. It’s probably our favorite beach around here because the water is incredibly shallow, so the kids get to feel like they’re going deep because they’re so far away from the shoreline, when really, the water never goes above anyone’s chest.
The sun was shining bright, the water was nice and warm and we had a good two hours of beachtime. It was a wonderful late afternoon at Gull Lake.
I keep forgetting that I have a camera when I remember to bring my phone along, so I didn’t get nearly as many photos as I could (or should) have. However, I did manage to snap a few after the kids reminded me 😉

The ride home was loud since we brought our nephew home with us and everyone was beyond excited, but it was super relaxing. We realized today though that every plan we keep on making for the summer seems to not work out, but when we don’t plan anything, we manage to have really amazing days. YAY for spontaneity 😉
