38yrs

Well, if you thought the 38yrs meant years old...well, you were wrong. It does mean 38 married years though! Today is our anniversary. We started out young, dumb, hard working, ready for any challenges, and ended up almost in the same place only not the "young" part! But we did go from this pic on Aug. 31, 1974..
To young parents who went on to have 4 of these....crazy little guys!
Sweet boys!
Crazy boys who grew up to be wonderful men.
Men who grew up to have these amazing kiddos of their own. It hasn't always been smooth sailing..many times rough waters try to drown us. But love, determination, team work, and maybe a bit of craziness has helped us to endure. Thanks for the amazing ride...now on to 39!

Happy anniversary! We're coming up on 39, so I know what about those trials and rewards! Four boys - don't know how you survived all that testosterone! And now the grandbabies...it just doesn't get any better, does it? They are truly the reward for the journey that started out 38 years ago.

Happy Anniversary. Our 50th is coming in Nov. Can't believe it. Don't know where the years have gone. Lots of water over the dam, that's for sure.
Blessings.

Congratulations and very happy anniversary to you. What a great looking family you have and with four boys, I bet you could blog on forever with stories about them. Boys are such fun. Thanks for sharing.

Your photo's reminded me of our family..and I wonder where the years went. My children are becoming the grandparents now...and that is startling! What a time it all was! :) You have a beautiful..or should I say "handsome" family. Nice looking every one of them!!

How wonderful 38 years with your best friend.
Congrats to both of you. I love these pictures of your sweet family.
I miss you but my computer is having big issues so I have not been on here much.
I so wish I knew what the problem is but I know nothing about computers.
Take care and may you have 38 more years together.
Love
Maggie
