These kiddos are lucky to have such a great Granny and GiGi. We were happy that Jon's parents could celebrate with us.
The kids took it upon themselves to open my dad's gift from my mom.
The 4 of us kids made my parents a scrapbook and each wrote a letter to them.
And then this happened. Some of us hurried out of the house to head to the party and stage my mom's anniversary surprise. It's a joke between my parents that my Dad has never been able to surprise my mom. With a little coordination and keeping our mouths shut (which never happens) we were able to pull it off! Great job, Pops!
When they pulled up to the restaurant Peter pulled around the corner in the car and stopped in front of her. She just kind of stared at it until she realized it was for her!
Anywhoo....They had the party at a British pub/restaurant in Clear Lake called Cock and Bull. We had appetizers and drinks in a lounge area and then a big meal in the restaurant. Lots of my parents friends came to celebrate.
Can I get an AMEN for Acadian Bakers Brownie Chocolate Mousse Cake? Greatest thing ever.
The kids were very well behaved, considering what a late night it was for them. Note to self: Connect 4 keeps them occupied.
And then this happened.
It was 70's night at the restaurant, so it was only fitting that we participate, right?
It ended up being such a fun night and party! Don't ever ask where I get it from. I don't know many people my parents age who would willingly and happily dress in sequins to commemorate their 35th wedding anniversary. So thank you to my parents for being such a wonderful example of a happy marriage and having lots of fun along the way!
