A marriage to emulate: Happy 50th anniversary, Mom and Dad!

My parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on Saturday, July 9th. We had a wonderful celebration with family members and some of their new and old friends. We had lovely food and music (jazz piano and drums), and speeches by their immediate family members (even one by their grandchildren)...and a very handsome and charming emcee (I'm married to him).

Nadine was responsible for the gorgeous decorations. I prepared a slide show with a retrospective of their 50 years together:

 I've posted my speech in a separate blog post.

Well, my kids are wild anyway...

 The boys borrowed the camera to take photos up in the trees--I think they did an excellent job!

 It was a wonderful celebration!
