40th Anniversary Party

On April 12th my parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary!! 40 years... that actually amazes me because I can't even think about being ALIVE for 40 years! I pray that Neil and I get that much time together - all we need is 34 more! To celebrate we had a big party at the neighborhood clubhouse on May 2nd with a tropical theme in hopes that they will finally go on that cruise they've been talking about for years.

I set up a table with some old pictures and other memorabilia. Here are some of the old wedding photos with some fun trivia for the guests! You can click on the picture to see it bigger and get a better look at how beautiful it all was and what the questions were. My mom made her veil and they met in high school in typing class - high school sweethearts
This lovely pair has survived all of the moves my family has made! They were at the reception.
A picture of almost everyone! I think we were missing about 3 people but in all about 40 were there to celebrate. They were troopers to get in so close together for this special picture that will be printed and put in a frame decorated for the event.

If you can see, there is a painting above the fireplace in the background of them on their wedding day. It was a really neat thing to have up and everyone loved it!
