5 Months Married!

We've made it 5 months as husband and wife. I do believe I promised to show our engagement pictures to celebrate 5 months. But first, the story.
There is a very private beach in town that we love to go to. You have to walk through a wooded path to get there, so not very many people go. This is where we wanted to do our engagement pictures. So we get together with our photographer and start to drive out there (about an hour away from us). We are almost there and realize that it is high tide. The way this beach is set up, if it's high tide, you can't even get onto the beach. So we decide to scratch that plan and take the ferry over to this park and take the pictures there. While in line for the ferry, it starts pouring rain.

We decide to reschedule the shoot for another day. That day comes and the forecast says rain, although it hasn't started yet. I call the photog and we decide that we really need to try for that day because the NewlyHusband was going to have ear surgery in a couple days and we would not be able to reschedule for a while. So we go ahead with the shoot but decide to do them at the more public beach closer to our house so we can hopefully get it done before the rain starts.

It was windy and thundering, but we got it done. Part of me still wishes we had been able to do the pictures where we really wanted to, but I do like how they turned out.

Here are some of the pictures.
This one is my favorite.
Notice how the NewlyHusband rolled his pants up to walk through the water and I didn't
And how in all subsequent pics, my pants are wet and his stay rolled up. Oops!

Told ya it was windy!
