A wonderful surprise

On the evening of our actual anniversary(we did our lil vacation a couple of days before), my mom and the girls planned something really special for us. It was a big "secret" and the girls couldn't wait to surprise us. My Mom decorated a beautiful cake, the girls made cards and there were even wedding mints and music playing from our reception years ago. It was so thoughtful and sweet. I'll never forget it! Thanks Mom for helping the girls to plan this. It meant a lot to us!

The beautiful cake
The table-our wedding colors were light green and silver which my mom tied in to the decor of the night.

We busted out some of our old stuff(I thought I'd be super cool and even wore my veil-lol.) Here we are drinking kool-aid from our wedding glasses. The kids got a kick out of this! And we did too.

Time to cut the cake!! I have to say we look a lot different cutting the cake ten years later. I wasn't knocked up back then. Sorry, but I couldn't resist typing that. lol

Even 10 years later I couldn't smash it in his face. I'm sweet like that:)

And he was sweet back.

The party planning committee-my 4 favorite ladies on this Earth!
The girls wanted to try on my tiara and be princesses. Presenting... Princess Aubrey.
Princess Ella

And little Princess Cali

After eating delicious cake and punch, we played our wedding video and danced the night away as a fam to all the fun songs from our reception. It was such a fun night reminiscing on our wedding day and remembering the fun we had. Thanks again Mom for coming up with this idea and everything you did for us. It was a memorable night!
