8 years strong

Peter and I celebrated our 8 year anniversary on Thursday! As usual, we didn’t make a big deal about the day as a whole. We decided long ago that we would celebrate in a bigger way every 5 years instead, to make up for the in between years. For our 5 year, we went to Disney World and we are thinking about going back for our 10 year. Of course, we still have time to think about that!

On Thursday, we both had to work, but afterword we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and our newly purchased Calgary Zoo memberships. We wandered around the zoo and said hello to the animals. Ezri really loves to go even if it’s just to run around in the fresh air. I definitely think it was worth it to buy our memberships as we’ve been 4 times in the last month already. We stopped by Wendy’s for some drive-thru on the way home and that was that. It was perfect just to spend time together as a family.

For the past two years, we haven’t taken our “usual” anniversary photo. We’ve still remembered to take a photo, but they are not posed like the rest of them. Oh well, they document our love and the time passing and that’s all that is important. I didn’t even post about our anniversary last year and so I just added our 7 year anniversary picture with all the rest below.

    Congratulations. You have a beautiful family here and I hope I can read at some point about your 50 anniversary. It’s amazing how you managed to love each other and be there for each other for so long. I hope that when the time is right, I will have the same thing.

    Congratulations <3

    Happy anniversary! That’s a good idea to do something big every 5 years :) It can be hard to do something big every year, and every 5 makes it feel even more special! I think going to the zoo is a nice way to spend the day. I also love that you guys take a photo every year. It’s really cool all the photos next to each other!
