Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!
Last month we celebrated mom and dad's 50th wedding anniversary with a party for family and friends, knowing that mom and dad were going to be in Florida on their actual anniversary. Since they were going to be away on Nov 8th, I schemed to see what I could do to surprise them and fly to Florida and join them. Thankfully all went perfectly and last night I was able to surprise them and today my aunt flew in as well! What fun! Lots of happy tears! My brother Dave and his wife Trish wish they could have been here too but with the new baby it just wasn't possible so we enjoyed some time together via Skype. It was good to at least be able to see them and chat with them.
My parents are staying in this neat place called, The Villages. It's a huge place filled with lots of fun, activities and golfing. My aunt and I even took the golfcart out for a spin to Tar-jay this afternoon but that warrants a post all it's own. :o)
One of the great things about being here is that my dad's 2 brothers and their wives are here too as well as a cousin and his wife and some friends too. Tonight 17 of us went out for a beautiful dinner at one of the country clubs and celebrated with mom and dad.
Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad! I love you! May you have many, many more wonderful years together!
