5th Anniversary

Yesterday was Rick and my 5th Anniversary. My mom and Kendra came over and babysat the kids so we could go on an actual date. This is like a bi yearly event. Something we should probably work on for the new year!

We went to the movie, Valkyrie. It was very good, very enlightening and pretty sad. I would recommend it to anyone. Maybe I can thank my Orting schools education or just American public schools in general but it had a lot of things about Nazi Germany that I never had heard of or thought about. In the movie, Tom Cruise's character said something to the effect that if they failed (the assassination of Hitler) and the Allies took Berlin that Germany would always be seen as Hitler's Germany. I don't think that is too far off. It gave me a lot to think about. Maybe a little deep for an anniversary but there wasn't anything else that we both wanted to see in the theater.

Afterward, we went to Sharis for a pig out feast. We got a gift card for Christmas and Rick REALLY wanted to go so we went. We just had a lot of fun spending time together and reminiscing about days gone by. It will be interesting to see what life deals us in the next five years. You just never know!

Happy Anniversary! I've been kinda wondering how that movie is so I'll be checking it out. (probably when it comes on I'm a fellow Netflixer)
