60th Anniversary Party

I had a busy weekend with my daughter and husband coming to town, and my parent's 60th Anniv. Party. Angie and Colin came in Thursday night. We had a party Friday night for her and some of her friends at my youngest daughter's house, where they are staying. Saturday we spent all day in Earling having formal pictures taken and just hanging out with family all day. We had dinner that night, with all of us "toasting" them with a memory. It was so much fun. Our whole family was able to come, and with 6 children, 16 grandchildren,  and 5 great-grandchildren, and assorted spouses, boyfriends and girlfriends we had about 45 people there. Of course by the end we were singing karaoke and having a great time. Most of us stayed overnight and had brunch before we started all going our separate ways. In the picture above I'm the one to the right of mom &  we didn't have the "little girls" yet. I think it was taken in 1959.
This is us now. We are so lucky that they are in good health and able to live an active (for 80 yr. olds) lifestyle. If you are on facebook I posted more pictures there as well.

I spent part of the day with my daughters and Colin. We walked over the pedestrian bridge then went to the Old Market to eat at Spagetti Works. After that we walked around the Old Market for a bit. They are coming here for supper tomorrow night and then flying home Wednesday morning.

Isn't it fun to get the whole family together and all be able to get around and do things together? I hope they have many more years together.

I'm glad you had such a good time. I can pick out 5 of you I know in the photo. Glad the weather was nice for you too. I was in Earling on Sunday for a baby shower for my daughter.

Yes, visiting my daughter.
Do you have all your blog comments sent to you as an e-mail. ??? Cuz all I did was hit comment after reading your blog. I didn't send an e-mail, your blog must have done it automatically.
Me, I just read my comments right here on the actual blog. I don't want to mix my blog comments in with family and business e-mails.
