On Sunday, August 16th, my parents had their 40th wedding anniversary.
They met at a rollerskating rink in Victoria 41 years ago and my mom was so nervous that she'd fall down when this handsome man came by and asked her if she wanted to skate, that she didn't even get his name that night! When he proposed several months later, she wanted to quit school and get married right then... but he said she had to finish school. So just a few weeks after her high school graduation in the Summer of '69, they got married, and have spent the last 40 years in love!
The Wedding Day... August 16, 1969
Thanks for being such an awesome example of what a great marriage looks like!
Celebrating at Montana's with some of the family... wish you could have been here, Louise! (you might remember my post back at Easter that showed the Family photos... that was the official celebration because my sister and family were able to be here then).
