60 YEARS!!

My parents have been married for 60 years as of today! WOW! We had a lovely evening - perfect weather, perfect food (thanks, Lee!), and perfect company!!

August 20, 1948 - August 20, 2008



After the four of us had dinner, Jenny came by with the kids and her mom, Bev, for dessert















We got my parents the Legacy Keeper by Hallmark.


















We made "build your own sundaes" with sprinkles, peanuts, bananas, strawberries, heath bar pieces, whipped cream and chocolate sauce!



Jenny brought brownies, too!
















Abby did her part to help clean up

Jenny's dessert, overflowing!

...And, it's gone!



Corene took my camera and started shooting! She took these and also the picture of her Gramby Bev above!

Your folks look great! Especially your mom - you wouldn't know by the photos that she was ever sick! Congratulations to them. Glad you had a wonderful evening.

Happy anniversary to them! I hope we get to be married for 60 years. What a blessing! Man, I sure would like a bite of that salmon...

That looks soooo lovely!!!

Jenna said...

yes! agreed! your mom looks great! and kyle ain't to bad the eyes either! not a bad week for jenny. did she tell you about the peach pie party? yeah. she scores this week!!! and corene's pics are surprisingly well composed. usually six-year-olds take really bad pictures. of course, i'm thinking the 35mm from my childhood aren't a great comparison to the full screen digitals. that probably helps! anyways...how are you?? i'm kidding. it's just that this is a really, really, really, really, really, really, really long comment. cheers.

60 years. Wow. Fun night. Nummy dessert.

Not to mention the invincible child who fell OFF the deck twice with nary a tear.
