60 years of marriage...wow.

The family came in from out of town...
and we celebrated!
We celebrated the 60 years my grandparents
have been married!

Here are some shots of our fun filled family weekend!

Allikaye, Addie, and Emma
or "the cousins" as Allikaye calls them.
She loves them, as do I!
I am still hearing every day,
"how many days til we go to Nebraska and see my cousins?"
Here's the cake!
And the happy couple!
I love this picture!
We had a big family and friends lunch at Zio's...
and everyone shared how they know my grandparents.
Those smiles show it all!
The cousins!
After the lunch we swam at the cousin's hotel
and then went to see Toy Story 3 (very cute)!

Here is Allikaye and cousin Luke...
see what I have to say about this boy below!
I want him!
We stopped to watch some street performer...
a guitarist with a bird that sang along.
Entertainment.
Matt, Addie, Emma, and Amber!

The next day we had a big family picnic...
reunion style!
Here's my Auntie Peggy and sweet Luke,
my cousin Amber's son.
He makes me want a boy soooo bad!
Feeding the ducks with grandma at the picnic...
Granny! I love her so!
Gramps!! Always makes me laugh!
My cousin Anna's twins!
So adorable!
Oh look what made it's way in here...
my cousin Amber
(who is so much more than a cousin - she is such a great friend)
bought this necklace...and I LOVE it...
so I took a picture!
The next day we all headed to
Roswell Community Church.
This is the same church my mom went to growing up...
my grandparents still go...
my parents, and my mom's siblings,
were all married there too!
History people!
This is the original part...
I think it's perdy.
Good 'ol fashioned hymnals!
Those are my parents...
and my cousin Mike and his wife Jill...
singing beautifully!
My grandparents were so proud to
have all their family together at their church...
Sweet cousins!


Happy 6oth anniversary, you love birds!

At the picnic I asked
them their happiest memory...
the first thing that pops up in their minds.

Granny said:
"When he came home from his time with the marines."
Sweet!

Grandpa said:
"Back in 1949 when they were 'seeing eachother,'
I was working at the St. Mary School,
laying brick,
and granny came by to see me.
All the guys started teasing, saying,
she was coming to get his paycheck
and they weren't even married yet!"

He laughed really hard about this!

So special.
I am so thankful that the family was
able to get together and celebrate.

The smiles from my grandparents having everyone
together was priceless!

Happy 4th of July to you all!!
