I hope everyone, especially all the Dads, had a wonderful Fathers’ Day! We had a double celebration here at the farm. Today is also my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. What a milestone! They made my sister and I promise not to have a big ‘to-do’, so we had a small family celebration here. An interesting fact is that their wedding day was also on Father’s Day back in 1959.
Here are my parents ~ 50 years ago on this day, a very very hot day in Perry, Missouri in 1959. And the guys in the wedding party all wore wool suits. Wow!
Today, we had some simple floral decorations (compliments of the perennial garden), ice cream and a wonderful cake, lots and lots of family and ‘couple’ photos, some gifts, and much fun reminiscing and viewing old family pictures. We also celebrated the Dads, of course!
Happy Father’s Day, Dads!
Happy 50th Anniversary, Mom & Dad!
We love you!
