  • Has it already been five years? Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary with a quick weekend beach getaway together with Dahlia. “Whisked off to paradise for a quick getaway to celebrate our anniversary,” Anne writes on Instagram.

    “Love you both so much @erwan. Here’s to many more core memories made.”

    The family of three recently wrapped up a trip to Japan with their siblings Solenn Heussaff, Nico Bolzico, and daughter Thlyane and Anne also shared she recently went on a museum date with Dahlia. It looks like “core memories”, as she says in her Instagram caption, is their family’s current state of mind.

    Wedding anniversaries are indeed a fun “excuse” to use in order to build your family’s core memories. Just like Anne and Erwan, you can easily include your kids in your anniversary and turn it into an opportunity for family bonding.

    In other words, if there’s no one you can leave the kids with or you just truly enjoy being together as much as you can, here are some ideas:

    Anniversary celebrations as a family

    1. Show your kids your wedding videos and photos.

    If you haven’t shown them footage from your big day, an anniversary is a prime opportunity. If you had children after your wedding, wait for your younger kids to wonder why they weren’t invited to the wedding, especially after they notice their entire family was present.

    Turn it into a moment by serving some of their favorite snacks while watching your wedding highlight reel. You can do the same with your photo slideshow or printed photo album. See if younger kids can recognize their extended family members.

    2. Take them through your love story and visit memorable places as a family.

    Kids don’t naturally realize parents were just regular people before becoming parents. If your kids are older, you may want to tell them about how mom and dad met, got together, fell in love. You can have extra fun by turning it into a game between mom and dad: see who remembers more details and have the kids be the game master.

    Return to memorable places as a family like where you first went on a date, where you said ‘I love you’, or where you got engaged.

    3. Go on a family vacation.

    Just like Anne and Erwan, you can bring the kids along with you on your anniversary trip too! You can also do the first and second activities while on vacation with the kids.

    During one of your meals on vacation, take the time to appreciate your spouse in front of your kids. Remember that the quality of your marriage can create a positive impact on your kids. A previous Smart Parenting article reports, “when kids grow up knowing their parents love and make time for each other, it provides a sense of security that nothing else can,” say Sheryl Kane to Parents.
