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!!
