Our Anniversary

Eight years in, we have started new anniversary traditions in our house. We go out to dinner with the kids and we watch our wedding video. They love the wedding video- it's a five minute recap of the day and they get to see some of their favorite people in the video. Penny has taken to calling it "our anniversary" and she thinks it should be a day she also gets to celebrate :) 
This year, we had a long list of appointments on our anniversary, so I took the day off and spent some time with the kids during the day. 
Porter rocked his eye doctor visit- he read every letter on the eye chart and impressed the doctor! I didn't get to take any photos because we had to wait over an hour to see the doctor and after 30 minutes of trying to keep him occupied and away from the community toys, I caved and gave him my phone to play with, so it shut off :( 
After the eye doctor, I dropped Porter off at school and picked Penny up. She came with me to my OB appointment to hear the baby's heartbeat. See the iPad- yep, another wait over an hour. We read all the books we brought along and talked for awhile before she tried to turn the waiting room into a jungle gym, so we did some reading apps together on the iPad while we waited. 
After the doc, we had a girls lunch at her favorite, Panera.  
 Then, we headed to mommy's dentist appointment. Our dentist is Penny's best friends' mom. So, Penny got to learn all about cavities and how they fix them. She got to stand next to the dentist as she learned about ever step of the process. She didn't get to learn about Novocaine, since mommy skips it every time. The dentist thinks I'm crazy, but it takes too long to take effect and leaves me drooling for hours. It's not good for me or the baby and honestly, cavity filling doesn't really hurt...the noise and smell are the worst parts.  Regardless, Penny learned quite a bit at the dentist.  
 Afterwords, we picked up Porter and met daddy for dinner at Applebee's. 
When we got home, we had some cake and watched the wedding video. Our anniversary was a great day!
