    What are some ways to celebrate your anniversary with kids?

    This is our 10 year anniversary so it's a pretty big one; but we love taking our kids with us. What are some ideas of places to go or things to do with young children on your anniversary?

    You can make reservations at a nice restaurant and go out to eat as a family. Another option would be to take a family vacation to celebrate your 10 years. Whether it be a simple road trip or an expensive trip to Hawaii, taking a trip in honor of your 10 years will be an awesome family experience.

    Thank you Sami. I like both of your ideas. We're paying newborn baby's hospital bills off so looking for something local is within our budget. It seems like it's peak season for everything right now. Trying hotels which are booked up (Gaylord Texan and Great Wolfe Lodge). May just do a random priceline and be spontaneous. I am a stay at home mom (right now) so getting out of the house is top priority for relaxation. The reason we are taking the kiddos is b/c two are still nursing. ;-) We have 3 lil ones under the age of 3. Can't bring myself to leave them anywhere overnight for more than a night just yet.

    When my daughter and son were young, we included them in our anniversary dinners and gift-giving because we wanted to communicate that this was meaningful and special for us. In time, when they were in high school and their parents were not as exciting as their peers, they usually found other things to do. They're adults now, and we're approaching our 32nd wedding anniversary, so they send us cards as they realize that few of the peers' parents have lasted this long. It gives them hope, and I'm glad we included them when they were youngsters.

    Get a baby sitter! You and hubby deserve a night out alone, especially on your anniversary.

      I am starting to lean towards needing a night out with the hubs without kids. Our friends have offered to get a cabin with us in broken bow, ok & watch them while we go out for the night.

      Go for it. Discover each other all over again - as lovers, not parents!
