On April 17, Bob's parents celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary! This is a huge milestone, definitely worthy of honor, so we, as well as all Bob's siblings, had a party for them on April 20. Bob's sister Ann did a wonderful job setting everything up!
It was a really lovely evening. It was really nice to visit with all Bob's siblings, plus most of their kids. My deep regret is that we didn't take any family pictures! After all the reception stuff, the waitresses started clearing the tables, and a local band started setting up to play at 8:00. So we all felt like it was time to leave, and I didn't even think about pictures until we were driving back to VA the next day! So hopefully we can all get back together in 5 more years to celebrate their 70th anniversary, and then we'll take lots of pictures!
We actually went up to PA Friday afternoon, and we left Sunday afternoon, so it was a nice visit. The weather was cold though! I had to dig back out long pants for everyone! Although it was colder, it was still sunny, so some of the kids and adults were able to go on walks. Bob's sister Rose and her girls brought their dog Tucker, who was so cute. At first the girls and Micah were really afraid of him, but they eventually warmed up and got a lot more comfortable with him. They took a long walk Saturday afternoon with him, and another one Sunday! And of course there was lots of food and card playing back at Bob's parents' house.
