Anniversary Party

I am so excited. This weekend is my parents 40th. wedding anniversary party. We are having it at one of our favorite restaurants, The Sierra Valley Lodge in Calpine, CA. For dinner the guests have a choice of prime rib, chicken marsala, and battered prawns (mine and my mom's favorite). My dad's favorite is the prime rib. On the side is creamy chicken florentine soup, bread, vegetable, green salad, etc. My mom had the local bakery make the cake. It is a white cake with a custard filling with strawberries on top.

The best thing is that my grandfather came from Wichita, Kansas for the party. It is so good to see him.

My parents will be married for 40 years on May 27th. Isn't that wonderful. I am so lucky to have such great parents.

I hope that all of you have a wonderful weekend.
P.S. Don't forget to give your signficant other a hug and tell them how much you love them.

All they have to do is float by the fisherman's net!! Shrimp in any form is one of my favorite foods. My mouth is watering already just thinking about them, bucky.

I forgot to mention that on Sunday morning my family is hosting breakfast for the out of towners that come at the restaurant where my mom works. We thought that it was the least we could do for them driving all that way. My mom's brothers are coming and we have not seen them for a couple of years.
