40yrs and counting

Today we attended a 40th wedding anniversary of some good friends of ours. Their kids put it all together and did a great job. They decorated the room up and put a ton of family pics up for everyone to enjoy, laugh at the hairdos, the clothes, the cool cars and see how much time has changed everyone. The tapestry of their lives certainly has been woven with the good and the not so good, but to make a marriage survive in this world for 40yrs deserves to be celebrated. Congrats Lloyd and Joanne and I hope you have 100 more! (I think Lloyd just fainted!!)

The happy couple had their own chairs of honor. All the decorations were cute and very festive. The colors and music made it feel tropical and fun!
Jack headed over to the food table to check out the grub...he wasn't disappointed!
The Groom...nice hat Lloyd!
Happy Bride!
Yes, I'm taking a pic of my food again...it was very yummy!
Well, we can't head to the Islands, but the Pines has air-conditioning so lets head out!

What a cute theme for an anniversary celebration! 40 years, in this day and age - we still have three to go to get there. When our daughter was in high school, she was one of a handfull of kids with an intact family. Isn't that something? And I agree, you and Jack are a good looking couple!

Nice picture of of you and Jack! Looks like fun and great food. Lots of changes at the Murray house I'll have to blog about even though I think you are the one and only person that reads it. Have a great weekend!
