A few weeks ago Dave and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary! Since we had just returned from Colorado, we really weren't planning on doing anything special. Lucky for us that wasn't the case! A neighbor came over during the babies' nap time to sit and watch them so we could go out for lunch! Going out for a lunch date is a rare occurrence- like one other time since the babies came home from the hospital. I was so excited to get out during the day and not be going to a doctor appointment or grocery store!
On the same day as the lunch date, Dave and I did a baby experiment - I took the boys to a friend's house and he kept the girls at home. I was really nervous about taking them somewhere new and the other adults being super annoyed that I had brought 3 kids with me. I was pleasantly surprised! They behaved very well and didn't destroy anything :) Dave said the girls were perfect at home, so that got us thinking that we could do arrangements like this more often! For us, only having to care for 3 babies is a break!
The best part of our anniversary was seeing Wicked the musical! We saw it 7 years ago (time flies!), but it was just as good the second time. We went with my aunt, uncle, cousin, and cousin-in-law. My other cousin wasn't able to make it into town in time for the show, so she gave us her tickets! It was such a great surprise and we were so thankful to get a night out and spend time with family :)
On the morning of our anniversary, I told Dave "Happy 6th Anniversary!" to which he replied, "6? Are you sure it's not 8?" haha I guess the last year felt like 3!
