The 50th Anniversary Party

Friday afternoon traffic and there was a BUS FIRE on the freeway.

It took us over an hour to get to the Anniversary party... over an hour in a non-A/C car that only has 2 windows that go down, and with 3 kids.  One of whom was nursed part of the time that we were driving (but were only going 5 mph for most of the feeding).  {Think what you will about my parenting, but it beat listening to him scream.  And at least I'm honest.  I told HH that it's a good thing we aren't famous--the paparazzi would have had a heyday}

Anyhow, the party was fun.  We had all of the children/grandkids/great-grandkids there, except for 2 grandsons that are serving missions & the husband of my neice (he had dental school finals).  Family in from Pittsburg, Idaho, Utah, California, & Nevada.  It's not often that we all can get together...I loved it.

My parents looked great.  The slideshow was awesome.  The music was fun (at least I thought so, but then I put that part together so I'm biased).  Delicious food.  Nice decor (my favorites were: the replica of their wedding cake & the huge effusions of flowers used as centerpieces).  It was a nice evening.  I'm excited for my parents to have reached such a big milestone.

I might post more pictures later, when I get pics from the official photographers, but here are my snapshots for now.

Little Man wore his new dress shirt "onesie" and bow tie (click on them for the tutorials).  He'd already had his pants taken off by the time we took these pictures.  They were silly pants anyhow, but stay tuned, because I'll do then next pair right and I'll do a tutorial for them...hopefully).

Whenever I see Brescia I think she looks so familiar... I just realized she looks a lot like ME when I was little! I'll have to dig out some baby pictures to compare...
