OBJECTS THAT PREDATE THE MERGER- special anniversary edition

On June 16, 2001 Sarah and I were joined in holy matrimony right here at good ol' Camp Maranatha. When we moved back here in 2004 we were surprised to discover that the camp staff had faithfully preserved our wedding cake in one of the Camp's freezers. We moved it up to our own freezer in the Log House until our anniversary last Tuesday. This object does technically predate the merger but only by a matter of hours, and, yes, technically this never belonged to me prior to the merger, but I am bending the rules a little for this special anniversary edition.
8 years!!!

Here I am opening the time capsule.
Sarah very much enjoyed the fact that the top of the cake was still decorated with the chocolate dipped strawberries, which we and the wedding party dipped prior to the ceremony. It was very nostalgic for us to see those hand dipped strawberries.
I wish I had taken a better picture of them.

Sarah didn't eat any, but I tried it. We both had a good laugh when we discovered that the cake was on one of the rented plates. Oops!
It still looks good, right?
That was all I ate though. It was a little freezer burnt.
Then we unceremoniously deposited it in the trash can. It was a fun trip down memory lane for us though. We are sentimental people. Happy anniversary, dearest. I love you!!!

Now you have another plate as a memento of that special day. You should write on the back of it.
