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.
Dad and Mom (front left and middle), Mom’s sisters and Dad’s brother and sisters in law.
The second cousins and my niece (back row right).
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.
As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day. (If you want to see Celebrating Family I go here. It is an intro to the reunion.)
Would you like to share a random delight that happened for you this week? You can use the linky below or simply put a link to your post in a comment. This party lasts all week, and is about sharing special moments with each other whatever form they take (more info here).
Don’t forget to put a link in your post back to this post, so others may take part if they wish.(we are on vacation for the next 5 weeks so it is possible I won’t be posting a RMoD weekly, but keep an eye out for when I do, I love having you join me!)
