65 years

Last night we celebrated my grandparents 65th wedding anniversary with a lovely dinner at the Vancouver Golf Club. Can you imagine being married for 65 years?! Incredible - 65 years, 4 children, 9 grandchildren, 1 great-grandchild and one more great-grandchild on the way; they are a great example of where I would love to be after 65 years, that's for sure.

My grandpa put so much effort into organizing this event and spent a lot of time making sure everyone was having fun. Such a social butterfly he is - maybe that's where I got my social skills from! Everything turned out so well and everyone had a blast. There was family, friends, neighbors and past co-workers there. Even my grandma's two flower girls were there!! So cute.

Dinner at the golf club (where my grandpa has been a member for practically forever!) is ALWAYS amazing. There was a creamy pesto pasta, vegetable ratatouille and a salmon that was to die for. Oh and foccacia bread with oil & vinegar. And caeser salad. I'm such a sucker for a good caeser salad. YUM. We have been there lots of times for dinner (and lunch; and breakfast!) and it's always delicious. My parents got married there 30 some odd years ago and I think it's just a special place in my heart that I associate with fun family times. I'd love to get married there some day!!

My cousin Gina & I. People were talking about how alike we look! (my mom & her dad are siblings)

My sister & our grandma

The pretty centerpieces that my Aunty Josie spent a lot of time on (those and chair covers!)

The dixieland band that played! They were fantastic, entertaining and super upbeat. I really enjoyed them!
