I like to go out of town with Mr. Incredible to celebrate our anniversary. Getting away by ourselves recharges my "marital batteries" and helps me relax and get refocused on Mr. Incredible rather than focusing solely on our girls. The way things are shaping up, it's a good thing that it really doesn't matter to me where we go as long as we get to spend time just by ourselves.
Last year, we ended up taking the girls to Tweetsie Railroad, but the previous two years we indulged Mr. Incredible's NASCAR fixation and traveled to "NASCAR country" near Charlotte. We visited different racing team headquarters including DEI (home to Dale Jr.'s team - and some other drivers, as well) and Joe Gibbs Racing (home to Tony Stewart and 2 other drivers). Although these sites weren't as interesting to me as they were to Mr. Incredible, I did enjoy looking at some of the memorabilia, admiring the buildings' architecture, and exclaiming about some of the modern office furniture.
This year, we will be returning to the NASCAR shops yet again. Mr. Incredible plans to purchase two more Dale Jr. cars from DEI. However, he has kindly asked if I would like to do something else on the trip. Would I?! He said we could stop by my friend Karen's house, and we're talking about possibly going to the mountains and finding some place to go canoing. I haven't done that since college, but I really enjoyed it then. Maybe next year we can go whitewater rafting again - I loved that!
How do you celebrate your anniversary?
