Tonight we celebrated my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. It was fun. A lot of work, but fun. We invited several of their friends to a restaurant for dinner then went to my parent's house for cake and punch. I made a video with their pictues and put it to 50's music. I think people who grew up in the 50's had more fun than we did - their music was fun music. I also made a wedding album for them since they never had one. And we had the cake made to look like a wedding cake. I have to give credit where credit is due. David from A Piece of Cake by David did an outstanding job with the cake. If you live in my area, I highly recommend him for any cakes you may need.
The thing that was the most fun though was seeing my mom and dad both enjoy the evening. Usually my mother will not allow anyone to do anyting nice for her. This evening was like pulling teeth to get her to let me do it, but once done, she really did enjoy it.
I am grateful for parents who have stayed together through all the rough times (and there were rough times) and who taught me what marriage and real love looks like.
