We don't have sitters anymore and so we had to take our kids to our 13th wedding anniversary dinner. It was definitely different because you kind of want the night to be about you and him but this time I had to adjust my thinking and just celebrate that we're having 7 kids in our 13 years together. Well, it was still at our favorite restaurant and had romantic lighting like we love.
My camera broke so I've been stuck taking pictures with our cell phone. The quality isn't too great.
The boys loved their fancy glass dishes and the kids were sooooo well behaved. I was so proud of them as they quietly ate and talked in whispers. Ryan even said, "Mom, I will watch the kids while you and dad go sit at your own little table." Of course we didn't take up the offer. Haha.
When we were dating, Charles took me to Macy's and bought us matching sweaters. 13 years later the sweaters still look new and we are so happy to wear them on special occasions. It's just so neat they we've had them all this time.
We always order:
All in all the night went well. Charles came home with some GORGEOUS flowers. I was so impressed when he told me that since the already put together flowers weren't so good, he picked 13 roses of his own to purchase. 13 for 13 years. I still would have loved to had one night in a year alone with him but we made the best of it. :)
