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.

If I was your mom, and read your posting, I would smile ear to ear.
It is so nice to see someone who truly adores their family.

I hope you all have a wonderful meal and even better memories!

Maybe you could post a photo :)

That's WONDERFUL!!!
You just never know. We are the only ones that are left of all of our friends that are still married to the same person.
We went through a LOT of stuff the first 10 years and it seemed that I wouldn't be able to go any further, but, now, I'm so glad that I did. You have to take the bad to be able to enjoy the good. I see so many people now that get married and just can't handle the work that it takes to keep the marraige going and just give up.(NOT speaking of the spouses that are abused) Just the ones that get bored with it. Oh well, I'm glad of the lessons that I've learned, it's made me a better person and wife.

also, anyone can tell that by the way Sierra talks of the love in the family, that, the family has to be wonderful to raise a child that thinks so much of family and friends!!

Thanks for the warm wishes for a happy anniversary for my parents. They are very special people in my life. Here is a picture I took of them on our vacation in Ft. Bragg, CA last October.

(40 years? they look too young!)
Sierra, they look so happy! Probably 'cause they were enjoying time with their daughter!!

The sunset looks almost like a backdrop, as it is so stunning!
