A Summer's Picnic

Yesterday Michael and I celebrated 9 years of marriage! We took a picnic to a local park and enjoyed a beautiful evening outdoors.

We took along pastrami, cheeses, and mixed olives,
a plate of tomato and mozzarella, some good bread, and a homemade tart,
and cherries! We both really enjoy cherries and thus we usually have them on our anniversary. As much as I think about trying to cook with cherries, I don't think they get any better than eating them fresh!
There was a pet duck in the park, spending the evening with her owner. The duck was adorable, and I had to take a picture for the kids:
And then I decided that we needed to practice self-portraits since so many of my blog friends are so proficient at it. :)
It was a lovely evening and we both look forward to many more years together.

I can't believe it has been 9 years! Remember trying to get tan in the Thomas' pool so we would not look so white in our dresses? Those were fun days. Happy Anniversary!!!

Happy belated anniversary! I also think the photo is cute. Self-portraits are hard to get just right. :)

Happy belated anniversary! You both look great. You put a lot of effort into your (what looked like a romantic!) picnic. I must make more of an effort myself next time...

Good Idea, picnic with yur husband, must try it myself!

Glad the Zirtex worked. I give it to my son sometimes for his hay fever. You can get the bottle of medicine over here as well as the tablet.
