60 years together

This weekend, we drove up to Berea to surprise Matt's grandparents with a 60th anniversary celebration.

We met at Matt's Aunt Jeanette's house (gorgeous). The family arrived and all we had to do was wait on the bride and groom. When they came to the front door, I had my camera ready to capture their faces, but a little someone decided to run to the front door to greet them. They were very confused to see their great grand daughter, but so happy upon entering the kitchen and putting it all together! Here they are, enjoying their feast and each other. Her corsage was the same kind of flower she had 60 years ago!


They have 4 girls, who all have their own families. Here we all are...
The kids were looking at the photographer, who sprinted into the picture after setting the timer. I left out the version of Larkyn flailing like a bucking bronco.

While the grown-ups ate (and ate, and ate), the kids stayed busy too...
Larkyn played with her cousin (who has amazing babysitting skills), went up and down the staircase 25+ times, tried punch with her auntie, and learned the magic of balloons with Jax. Lesson learned? For Christmas, we can set out a folding chair, a punch bowl, 3 helium balloons, and let her go up and down our front porch steps over and over. Speaking of Christmas...


60 years is twice my lifetime. It is pretty amazing that they have gone through all of life's stages together and now have this big family to share it with. We all hope for this kind of stability, but rarely is it found. Here's to the firefighter who raised 4 girls and his elegant wife who has never owned a pair of jeans!

And it looks like a good time was had by all! Beautiful pictures, Stacie. It's so good that Larkyn gets to know Daddy's family too!

Those dimples on the baby! I love it!

I hope I make it to 60 years.

Actually, I hope DREW makes it to 60 years. :-)
