Anniversaries, Gotcha Day, Weddings, and Births
We recently got back from John's parents 50th wedding anniversary celebration in Washington state. Not many couples make it that far anymore, healthy and happily married so kudos to Mom and Dad for that accomplishment. It coincided with the Tri-cities hydroboat races. I never knew anything like that existed until I married John, who grew up with them. It was fun to see, and now my kids have memories of the hotel as part of Nana's and Papa's house. Michael told me today I'm going to Nana's and Papa's house and the hotel tomorrow. He is so funny. His memory is also incredible, as it was brought about by looking at pictures I downloaded to my computer. He said I need to get on the plane tomorrow! Phoebe doesn't seem to remember her experiences as well, although she remembered the wedding we went to today. Funny what sticks in a girl's mind vs a boy's. I definitely have a masculine boy and a feminine girl. It's great fun to have their personalities like that!
