Random Moments of Delight #29: Celebrating Family II

Early last week I helped my mother and father celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary.

30+ members of our family gathered in Estes Park, CO for a wonderful reunion and party. I didn’t remember to bring a camera, so I let other people document the celebration.

Here’s a selfie of my brother,hubby, me, and our wonderful ‘sister from another mother’ on a snow field off the Trail Ridge Road.

This is one of the magnificent views from the Trail Ridge Road that my husband Tim took. (Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park goes over the Continental Divide).

Mom, Dad, Tim and I had fun taking the tram up to view Estes Park… we just beat the afternoon shower. Here’s another of Tim’s shots.

As for the company? I loved reuniting with cousins and their spouses, aunts and uncles and second cousins. It’s always fun to see the newest generation. These photos are all thanks to my brother, cousin and Dad.

My first cousins and their spouses (btw, it was great fun to introduce Tim to my family – we celebrated our second wedding anniversary our first day there). I love the animated gif my brother put together… it embodies the energy of fun we experienced our whole time together.

Here is the one photo I got with my iPhone… a shot of Mom and Dad in downtown Estes Park near where they became engaged those many years ago. I wish them both many more happy years together, and lots more reunions filled with laughter and love.
