With all the traveling we did for the 4th and then the weekend after, our anniversary really snuck up on us this year! I realized a couple times it fell on a Monday but it wasn't until we were leaving Topeka on Sunday that it dawned on me our anniversary was the following day. We decided last minute to take the kids out for dinner to celebrate because my grandparents sent us a nice card with a check in it. We had coupons for free kids meals at a Mexican restaurant so we went there. On the way home from dinner the sun was shining through the clouds and it was just beautiful. As Ty walked down the hall I heard him tell Harper, "Teach you to like someone the first time you meet them." I asked him what he was talking about and he said Harper liked him when she first met him and now she's stuck with him because I married him. It was cute to realize Ty was feeling sentimental and thinking back to the beginning of our relationship just like I tend to do each year on our anniversary!
Before we left for dinner we took our annual family picture. I was changing into a dress and told Carter we were taking a picture and asked him if he would wear something fancy. He said he'd go pick it out. He came back out with a button-up shit and tie paired with gym shorts and tall dinosaur socks. I couldn't help but laugh. It just shows his sweet, little personality so well! I tried to talk Elise into changing into something nicer but she insisted she didn't want to change. I figured I was doing good when she agreed she would smile for the picture so she could have a dessert after dinner. Little did she know the kids meals where we were going come with a free dessert!
Here's a list of the extra song we've danced to each year because one song is just not enough. And there's always a current song that I just love and want to dance to with Ty. Ed Sheeran is obviously a favorite of mine when you see this list!
