300 Photos, Full Tummies, Good Memories

I'm home after nine days on the road – the first half for work, and the second half for fun, when SwingDaddy, Q, Lady O & Cha gathered with friends to celebrate my parents' 40th wedding anniversary. (Trivia question: 25 years is silver, and 50 is gold. What's the tag for 40 years? Answer at the end of the post.)

Q had the time of his life, attending Tai Chi classes with my folks, demanding they sing "wock and woll" songs for him to accompany on the guitar, and eating up a storm. The rest of us had a good time too. There were some pretty funny, unbloggable moments that I'll have to tell y'all in person, involving poorly timed photo requests and large rocks.

My parents are the most amazing and supportive people a girl could ask for. Congratulations!

P.S. 40th is the Ruby Anniversary.

wow, that last picture is priceless, with the light illuminating just Q's face, and the silhouettes of your folks on either side of him. great photo, M. :)

Yes, that last pic gives me goosebumps. It's amazing.

So glad you had a good time... Congratulations to your parents! What an awesome example -- I know that feeling. Mine have been married 31 years this summer, while Knight's divorced when he was two years old. Now that I'm married, I'm even more amazed at their accomplishment. ;) We're trying to learn what we can from them!

I got lucky with Q's face being illuminated by the sunlight through the trees. Can't pretend it was skill, but I suppose if you take enough pictures, you do get to capture some amazing moments!
