Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are no strangers to glamor. Their off-time, however, is spent in a decidedly more low-key manner. In an interview with Good Morning America on Wednesday, Lively described the notably chill way in which she and her husband celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary this past Sunday: by doing nothing. You know, in a romantic sort of way.

Though Lively admitted that she spent much of the milestone working—she’s been on a whirlwind press tour ahead of the release of her upcoming film, A Simple Favor—she still found time for a little R&R with Reynolds and their two young daughters, James and Inez. “I mean, honestly, the best vacation we can have is to be able to do nothing with our family, so that’s what we did,” she said. “I had to explain to my daughter what an anniversary is. She’s like, ‘What is it? Does it mean you’re having another baby today?’ And I was like, ‘Dear God, no! It doesn’t, it means it’s our wedding’s birthday.'”

The 31-year-old also gave some insight into her and Reynolds’s parenting style, which was put on display earlier this year, when fans caught the pair jumping up and down at a Taylor Swift concert when James’s cameo at the beginning of the song “Gorgeous” played over the loudspeakers. “We were very embarrassing,” Lively told GMA of the proud moment. “That is the true, unfiltered version of our terrible stage-parent pride,” she said, but added that their daughters have “very normal lives, as much as that’s possible.”

Over the weekend, just in time for their anniversary, Lively left a sweet and possibly NSFW comment on a photo Reynolds posted on Instagram, showing a huge photo of himself on the side of a delivery truck for the alcohol company he co-owns, Aviation Gin. “Who needs a mini van?! I’m driving this from now on. Subtle, gorgeous, and OHMYGAWDYOUREHUGE,” read the comment section dispatch.
