did it! We made it a whole year through marriage! Because this is such a
big accomplishment we celebrated all weekend together.
First, we started at Huntington Reservation in Bay Village, Ohio.
Here we took Anniversary photos. We used a tripod and took them
ourselves to save some cash. They turned out really good. We plan to do
this every year, and each year change the number in the frame! That way
in 100 years we'll be able to see how much we've changed.
Next, we drove to Sandusky, Ohio for a get-a-way at Kalahari Indoor
Water Park and Resort! We reserved the King Whirlpool Room for one
night, but it comes with two days admission to the water park. We
weren't supposed to check in until 4PM, but they had our room ready at
Our room was huge. Way too big for two people, but we didn't mind.
It had a full kitchen, a whirpool bath tub, a king size bed (in its own room), a
fireplace, living room, dining room, and balcony! It was quite
ridiculous, but we loved it.
The next morning we went back to the water park
to get on the slides early before the crowd got there. Our plan worked.
We spent most of our time in the 21 and over hot tub/swim up bar. We
refilled our souvenir glass with a huge Adult Chocolate milkshake..
which was amazing! We started to get tired and decided to head home.
Kalahari made for a great anniversary get-a-way. It was like tropical
resort, but only an hour away in Ohio. It was perfect!
On Monday -- our actual anniversary -- we celebrated by watching the
DVD of our wedding, eating the top tier of our cake, and drinking a blue drink from our wedding glasses. The 1st
anniversary is known as the "paper" anniversary. So I got Adam toilet
paper. He got us candy to share. The candy was way better than the cake.
Let me tell you, year old frozen (we thawed it first) wedding cake
isn't actually very tasty. It was funny to eat it thought so I don't
regret it. It was fun watching the DVD because we decided to wait until
our anniversary to watch it.
