The Top Layer of Cake

You know how your supposed top eat the top layer of your wedding cake on your anniversary? Derek and I decided to follow this tradition, because Derek's sister took special attention to make sure to save the top layer of our cake for us, and my parent's held it in their freezer the entire year. We were also actually excited to eat the cake, because we didn't really get to eat any at our actual wedding reception - we were too busy talking to people.

So we went to my parent's house for lunch and got the top of the cake. We stopped by the house and I left the cake on the counter to thaw out while we were gone.

We decided to go see Transformers at the Imax theater. It was pretty fun - watching the movie on that big screen made it feel like you were almost in the movie! Afterwards we got ice cream at Cold Stone and sat on a bench near a lake and just enjoyed the twilight. It was very relaxing and romantic.

Just by chance we also happen to be watching my parent's Australian shepherd for a couple weeks because my parents are going on a cruise for their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. And we this just happened to be the first night we had the dog at our house. We thought he'd be fine in our basement, and we locked him down there while we were gone on our anniversary date.

When we got home we noticed the gate that we had used to block off the basement was knocked down. I was a little nervous to come upstairs, because I was worried my parent's dog might have got into the trash. But as I peeked around the corner there was no sign of any food or anything on the floor, so I thought we were home free.

I was wrong.

Here's what I saw as I turned the corner into our kitchen:

The funny thing is, he didn't really eat the cake. He just licked the frosting off all the sides!

We're a little bitter about not getting to finally enjoy a piece of our wedding cake. But I couldn't help but smile and chuckle just a little bit. I think this time next year we'll be howling with laughter over the wedding cake tragedy. But for now we'll be bitter.

Stay tuned for a post about the anniversary gift Derek made me!

Oh, I'm sorry! It's tough knowing that something will be funny "one day," when it is so NOT funny now! I'm glad ya'll had a great date though!

Aww, I'm sorry to hear that! We ate our cake last night, though, and neither one of us could stand to eat more than a few bites. It was SOOO dry from being frozen for a year. lol...but it stinks that you missed that tradition!

We also saw Transformers in IMAX, and you're right, it was really awesome!! I'm planning on taking my sister to see the new HP movie in IMAX on her birthday in a few weeks, because she is a huge fan!
