Happy 8th anniversary to us

On July 25th, we celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. I am still in shock that our wedding was 8 years ago. Those 8 years came so quickly, I swear I just blinked and we were here. Happy 8th anniversary to us.

We had plans to travel to Guadeloupe with my cousin and were just going to celebrate while we were there. However, hubby started a new job 4 months ago and simply couldn't take the time off in addition to our trip to Punta Cana in April. I was so bummed because in our 8 years of marriage, this was the first time that we weren't together on our actual anniversary.

We decided to celebrate the weekend before because I am all about celebrating everything in life. Our parents watched the kids for us so that we could get a one night getaway. We are so lucky to have all this amazing support in our lives.

We checked in at the hotel and went out to the city for dinner. I just love this picture of us. 8 years and 4 kids later. I look forward to celebrating many more happy years with my favorite guy.
Our new thing when we are in a hotel it to pre-drink before we go out. So of course we did a little pre drinking before we left.
Of course that led to funny mirror pics as you do. Hubby is always acting crazy when I pull the camera :)
I love this man to pieces and I am so happy that I get to do life with him everyday
We walked around the city for a bit before dinner and of course I asked someone to take a picture of us. Ain't nobody got time for selfies ;).
We had an awesome dinner in the city. Hubby didn't want any pictures during dinner, does he know me?

 Ring picture of course. Hubby was playing the drums with his hands in the shape of a heart, how appropriate :)
I had to bribe him for this picture. I just love that you can see the city lights in the background
 Our server got overzealous and decided to take another picture, I don't mind that at all :)
 Hubby always makes the craziest faces as soon as the camera is in his face. Lucky for him, I love his crazy faces
The next day we had plans for brunch at one of our favorite brunch place. This place is so popular that the wait was almost an hour. Luckily we knew that so we planned to do a boat ride while we waited.

Getting ready to get on the boat
Hubby was pedaling the whole time while I took a million pictures of course. This was hard you guys
 
 Now that's the life
  Look at that big dragon boat. We moved that thing around like pros, well hubby did :)
 We definitely worked up an appetite after that boat ride. Brunch was so delicious.
After brunch we went to see the movie "Baby Driver", such a good movie. I highly recommend. We picked up the kids after the movie. It was a really nice overnight break to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

I love this close up shot of us on the boat
I am already planning our next anniversary, maybe we can finally do the Greek isle of Santorini. Happy 8th anniversary to us.

  2. Happy Anniversary! Glad you took the time to go celebrate. Also, good on you for asking for pics. I get tired of asking, so we have very few pics together on this trip and I'm kinda bummed.
