Over the past 6 months or so I had been planning my parents surprise 50th Wedding Anniversary party.
It was so hard for me not to post about it or mention it on Facebook. My Mom reads the blog and is also on Facebook, so there was a lot of messaging going on.
It was so hard to keep things from my Mom. She's at my house 5 days a week for the boys so I could keep nothing at the house for the party. Everything was stored at my sister-in-laws or at my office at work.
This past Saturday the day finally arrived. We had a wonderful party for them at a local Italian restuarant (of course it had to be Italian). My parents were totally surprised and had a fantastic day. We had a video made of their life together. The music.....That's Amore by Dino of course! We saw relatives we haven't seen for years, one of her best friends flew in from Florida to attend, it was just amazing. I'm so glad I got to make that memory for them.
Here's a pic of my Mom and Dad at her Senior Prom:
And one of them on their wedding day May 19, 1962.
50 years of marriage!
So besides being busy with the party we have been busy in the yard and garden. That's why I've been a little scarse and probably will be for a bit.
When the sun is shining I just can't sit in the house in front of a computer screen, so you will all have to forgive me.
We've got some projects going on. New bench for the yard, new big birdhouse, decks to be stained, mulch to be put down. We are busy!
I do have some delicious recipes to post! I've made them and photographed them now I just have to find the time to write a post!
Enjoy the long weekend!
