Today is my mom and dads 40th Anniversary! On Thursday night, we (the kids& grand kids---minus Trav,...we missed you!) threw mom & dad a surprise anniversary dinner. It was wonderful! I wish I had pictures to show (but I have to get copies from my sister) My sister had transformed her basement into a wonderland :) It was kinda hard to pull a surprise over on my parents (lots of emailing between my brothers & sisters & I, just to get everything as perfect as we could.) But to see the looks on the faces, their reactions were priceless. I will never forget their 40th celebration, and I am so glad to have been a part of it. Then we sent them off on a romantical vacation, so they could celebrate this wonderful day! Above are only a couple of my favorite pics of my parents. (to be honest it was hard to choose only a few, but otherwise all of you would be watching a 10 minute slideshow :)
Mom and Dad,
How can I ever Thank you enough for everything you have done for me. I am so lucky to have you as parents. You have taught me so much through your examples. Everything good that is in me, is because of you! You two are more amazing than I can even try to put into words. The love you have for each other is inspirational! Whenever I see you look at each other or talk about each other it is obvious that you two were absolutely made for each other, and that you are still madly in love. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for being just who you are!
You have set the bar high for all of us, but have also shown us the way to follow in your footsteps, so we can LIVE full, happy lives. I love you both with all my heart.
P.S. Trav, thanks for getting on my case about blogging:). I just had a "little" hiccup, I will get back to blogging more regularly. We really did miss you at the dinner, but can't wait to see you and Grandma in July....it's coming quicker than we think:)
