July 10, 2008

July 10, 2008 was my parents' 60th anniversary. Last night we had a dinner for them. It was nice to have my family all in one place minus one or two who couldn't make it. Fun was had by all, and everyone got "full as a tick" as my Aunt Minnie would have said.

Aunt Minnie was at the 50th but she didn't live long enough to make the 60th. We all made it to her 60th tho. And if God is willing, maybe hubby and I will make it to ours. We are almost to our 40th so maybe it's possible.

My nephew had a cake made with an old photo of my parents. The best time frame I can come up with is probably in the 50s. I think the original photo was taken at the zoo in Fort Worth, Texas. I believe my two brothers and I were with them. The youngest was born in 1953. We were in Texas visiting my mother's sister and her family.

Back to the dinner. The food was great but best of all was the visiting we all did. It's so nice to go over past dinners and events and remember things that we only think of at these special times. There were photos of family members along the way, and some the grandkids had not seen. And we had one great grandchild there. 4 Generations.

I'm not too sure they will make their 70th. That would take a miracle. Both my parents are showing their age. They are more feeble in the last couple of years. And when a 70th is mentioned, my mom just looked at us like we were crazy. Anyway we got many photos from last night and will have them ready if and when the 70th gets here.

Here is a photo of the cake. You can click on the photo to see it larger.
