I thought you would enjoy seeing some pictures from when Ben and I first started being friends and then dating. Enjoy!
Back in 2003- Rochelle's first year at school, and Ben's first year back from the mission... Rochelle knew someone on his team and came to watch them play...but never met Ben until 2006... was it fate? Who knows! (Ben is the shortest guy in the front row, and Rochelle's friend is the tallest guy in the back row!)
The First Time Rochelle ever saw Ben play guitar... and then she was hooked!
The first date that Rochelle and Ben had, well, it wasn't really a date. Rochelle invited Ben to go check out the canyon to see if the snow was gone so they could go rock climbing... well it rained, and they went to breakfast, went bowling, and then he put his arm around her!! FINALLY! Here are some rock-climbing pics...
The first time Rochelle ever met Ben's family was the day his sister, Leah, graduated... talk about feeling out of place. This picture is from a picnic by Leah's house.
This is from the first time Ben went back to Chicago with Rochelle. This is taken just at the top of the bluff by the beach. Rochelle's mom wanted them to waste some time so she could finish cleaning the house! So we took a stroll to the beach. It was SO cold!! But ah- the leaves are beautiful!
Rochelle thinking that she can teach Ben something with a big gun... ow.
OK- one last picture for now. Rochelle and Ben enjoying the break from school in Yellowstone.
