Fourteen years together

We made it! It's our fourteenth wedding anniversary today. Last night we had a delicious seafood dinner without the kids. It was really strange though, we eat out a lot with the kids, but are always in a hurry to eat and get out of the restaurant while the baby's still in a good mood. Last night we had all the time in the world but we had a hard time pacing ourselves, so we didn't really have a leisurely meal. It never ceases to amaze me how kids change your life to a point when you can never go back to your old habits!

Bilal apparently had no issues about us not being at home at his bedtime. He went through the routine with Vicki as if this was always the way we had been dong it. That's reassuring, maybe we won't wait two more years this time before Zakir and I go out again.
The kids presented us with gifts they had made themselves. Safa made us a beautiful anniversary book, made with photos that bring back great memories. Hamza made a card that flies, and we even got a colorful card from Bilal, made with help from his big sister. We have wonderful children, this is just another reminder.

So glad that you and Zakir got a night to yourselves, and that Bilal did fine at home! Best wishes for many, many more happy years!
