This weekend marked a big one for America — but also for the Beckham clan. Mila and Ashton weren’t the only celebs to celebrate a major milestone this July 4th weekend; across the pond, David and Victoria Beckham celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary.

Lazy girls + dudes, take note: a sweet (bonus points for TBT!) Instagram proclamation of love can be just as good as a card these days. David posted this super sweet Instagram in tribute to his lovely wife with the caption: “16 years ago today was our special day. 16 years on we have our beautiful children. Thank you for giving me our amazing little ones. Happy anniversary.” BRB, melting.

Victoria’s Instagram showed how the pair decided to celebrate their anniversary — with a posh formal dinner including the whole family. For that they get an A+ for adorable.

Involving the whole clan rather than opting for a one-on-one date just might be the best new way to celebrate a wedding anniversary. The Beckham kids sure look like they agree. Just look at Harper’s toothy little smile ;)
