Happy Anniversary to my parents. Here’s to 50 more!

On Saturday we celebrated my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary with family and friends.  What a milestone!  I’m thankful to have wonderful parents who set a good example for my brother and sister and me, and for our kids, too!

So thinking back to 1962, the year they got married (yay for Google!)…

  • John F. Kennedy was the President
  • The first Wal-Mart store opened
  • The Rolling Stones made their debut
  • Lawrence of Arabia was the top grossing film
  • The Beverly Hillbillies struck black gold, Texas Tea

and…

  • Gas was $.28/gallon

Obviously a lot has changed in the half century since my mom and dad got married. Along came a son and two daughters, four grandchildren, and even a great-granddaughter on Friday (thanks Ashley for showing us all up with that gift!!).  But at least one thing is the same – they are still making googly eyes at each other!
