11 years of ben and kasey

This is Ben driving his way into my life. I think he must have been 19 at the time? If you look in the back seat there is a little boy who is his nephew. Little Chris was like 7 or 8 years old in this photo and now he is like 23 or something. I miss the Acura.

This is one of the reasons I fell in love with Ben, isn't he cute and young in this picture?

I took this picture of Ben without his knowing and had it on my dresser before we were even "officially" dating. His nephew saw it and told him and I wanted to die from embarrassment.

This is Ben and I at a wedding, this is the night we held hands for the first time:

This is Ben and I camping with his family at Interstate park in Wisconsin, I don't remember the year or if we were married or not yet.

Ben and I were dating in the picture below. His sister Lisa took this picture of us. I believe we were engaged at the time.

Ben and I on a road trip up to the Falls with his sister and her friend. I think this was a couple of months before our wedding. We stopped to take pictures of the beautiful fall weather in Minnesota. This is back when Ben would pick me up and carry me around constantly. Now he'd rather not, ha ha.

Ben and his boyz in Colorado, he was gone for like 4 days or something, I missed him so bad, we didn't talk on the phone while he was gone so he could have fun with his friends. I think this was the year before we got engaged.

Our first dance at our wedding. The song was "A Kiss To Build a Dream On" by Louis Armstrong: our song. He played it while he asked me to marry him.
Our second apartment, after our first wedding anniversary. I just had to put this on here because Jim's legs are wrapped around Ben and it makes me smile.

I went to the apple orchard with Kelly. I chose this picture because I am about 4 or 5 months pregnant with Miles at the time. It's the beginning of our family.
Miles and Murphy meet for the first time. Murphy is like 10 hours old. Miles is almost 2 and 1/2. My sweet boys:

Our seven year wedding anniversary. Our little four person family. Two boys and no girls, we thought we were complete and autism didn't exist in our world.

Our complete little family. Two boys and a girl. Now we have it all:

Ben and I recently. I love this picture. We are going to celebrate our 11 year wedding anniversary on the 21st of this month. We are planning a family celebration with gifts for the kids too. I would tell you what I am getting Miles and Ben, but I want Miles to be surprised.
