My parents just celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. It was a spectacular event with all of the kids and nearly all of the grandkids together at the same time! (a feat within itself!) My niece did an amazing job with the whole thing. She is quite fantastic.
We all had a marvelous time. It was fantastic to see the love and caring of all of those present for 2 people who have created something really spectacular, that so many of us either take for granted, or just don't put a value on these days -- a loving family.
We took flowers from my sister's and Niece's yard to decorate.
Everyone pitched in to make the food and clean up.
My nephew, Mike, tended bar.
And the grandkids and great-grandkids provided the entertainment the whole weekend.
