Mom and Dad will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on November 8th! Since they're heading to the sunny south for the month of November (smart people) we decided to celebrate with an open house in their honour this past weekend. It was wonderful to see many of their family and friends come and celebrate with them.
They were wonderfully surprised when some family drove over 4 hours just to spend a little time and celebrate with them. (l to r) Uncle Greg, Uncle Gerry (mom's brother), dad, mom, Aunt Elaine and Aunt Marg (mom's sister.) This was the 2nd time that this group surprised mom and dad!
Other family surprises were:
Our cousin Sean. I asked he and Dave to stand closer together for the picture and this is what I got!
Our cousin Tommy and his wife Sharlotte.
Dad's Uncle Bob and Aunt Edla.
Dad's cousin Brett with his wife Linda and daughter Mallory.
Dad's cousin Craig and his wife Jo.
Finally, pics of our gang:
Dave, Trish, Makenna and I with mom and dad
Rebecca with Grandma and Grandpa
Dave and Trish's 3 boys Josh, Noah and Justin (Unfortunately I missed beautiful Laken in these pics as she was behind the camera. Sorry sweetie.)
Grandpa and Miss Makenna. A little out of focus but precious none the less!
Dad being silly with the balloons.
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad. Sorry we're not going to be with you on your big day but Dave, Trish and I are so happy that we were able to share this celebration with you!
