What are the most awesome ideas for marking or celebrating time that you have either done or heard of? There are some criteria…

I’m looking for ideas that require years of planning to pull off and/or have to be done during a certain window of opportunity – because that is what makes them so awesome. I always seem to hear about these ideas AFTER my window of opportunity has passed, and I think, "Wow, that would have been soooo cool, but it's too late now."
Here are examples of the kinds of things I am looking for:
-taking a picture of your child every day of their life and then making a movie of the photos
-planting a tree in your yard each time you have a baby and watching it grow with your child or marking their height on the wall every birthday (something to come back to year after year)
-those ‘add a pearl/bead’ each year necklaces that people use to mark an anniversary/birthday
I want to hear about more of these ideas now and get started on one or two while my windows exist; I’m hoping to share ideas I can’t use with friends who can.
So, what are the most awesome ideas for marking or celebrating time that you have either done or heard of?
