50th Wedding Anniversary

My parents 50th wedding anniversary was on June 2nd of this year.  Isn’t that something else?  The worlds greatest parents too!  Yep, I know I’m very biased on it.  Anyhow I’ve been wanting to post something here about it and haven’t been able to till now.

Earlier this year I asked my mother what they would like for the anniversary.  She made it very clear that they wanted it kept small and with only the family.  That their desire would be to have all their kids and their families go out and eat at a restaurant together.

So we arranged a private room at a local restaurant here on July 2nd.  This date worked best because most of my siblings come to town for the 4th of July anyway.

After we finished at the restaurant, we came out to my house, where we got pictures.  After that, we went in and watched a slide show that I put together of all the pictures of my parents as kids with their parents, and of them through the years together.   It was fun to hear them recall stories as they veiwed various pictures.

Above two Pictures:  This was taken in June as a gift for their anniversary.  The top one I like because it catches a mood that is totally them.  Happy.  The next one is the one that my mother choose because she liked it.

PhotographerHere is the BIG group picture of everyone who made it to their celebration.  What a group it is too.  We were missing a few of my kids and a few of my siblings kids.

PhotographerHere is me with my siblings and parents.  We really didn’t plan the picture part very well, so we were wearing clothing that really didn’t match, so turning it into a Black and White photograph was the best solution.
