For We Know We Need Each Other: 5 Years

Our 5 year anniversary was last Saturday but it's been a busy post week so I haven't had a chance to post until today. It's hard to believe it's been five years already!

Thanks to grandparents we were able to go on a date to celebrate our five year anniversary. We tossed around a few options of what to do for our anniversary knowing that we definitely planned to go see the new Captain America movie. Last year we went bowling and we thought about doing something else this year but since we couldn't come up with a better idea, we decided to go bowling again.

So that afternoon we headed to the bowling alley (thanks grandparents!) and bowled two games. I broke 100 in the first game and beat Rob. I almost had him beat in the second game until the last frame when he beat me, but with the scores together I had him beat. We then headed to the movies to see Captain America. It was good and I ate a lot of popcorn. After the movie we then headed out to eat dinner (Carrabba's). Before we headed home we took a side trip to Best Buy to buy a couple movies then home just in time to help find a missing puppy at bedtime.

We had a great date and it was good to get out just the two of us.

As for our gift, the traditional five year gift is wood, the modern is silverware. Since we had no plans to buy silverware, we went with a wood gift. For our anniversary we like to get a joint gift and this year I found the perfect sign for us to hang in our room made of wood (check out picture #2).

It's truly hard to believe it's been five years now of being wedded. (Check out what I had to say about all that being wedded stuff here.) It's been a heck of a five years - bring on year number six!
