Celebration 50 Years

We went to California to help celebrate a 50th Wedding Anniversary.
Dave Reeder, Tom's brother, and his bride Vicki were married in Puyallup, WA 50 years ago, and moved to the Los Altos area soon after.  They look pretty amazing, for "old" people, don't they?

Some of the members of the original wedding party came from quite a distance to be here for the day. 
 And here are the rest of us, minus a few children who had run off to play, who were treated to a wonderful garden lunch before the reception later in the afternoon.
Yes, there was a garden, too!  I will post more about that when I get back home.  Hotel hook up is slow and my little laptop gets easily bogged down with my plethora of pictures. 

  Now we are off to Memphis!

  5. Quite an accomplishment in this day and time so congratulations to the couple. I would never have guessed that woman was old enough to be married 50 years! She is obviously doing many things right! Lovely location!

  6. 50 years is an amazing achievement in this day and age. But I have to say the bride is very youthful.

  8. They do look super lovely for 50 years. Maybe we should be planning a garden party...I so afraid that few would come. But I should be brave, shouldn't I?

  14. They are a fine looking couple indeed. As you know, some friends of mine celebrated their 50th a couple of weeks ago, too. I see you are wearing your pretty white jacket, looking very spiffy. :-)
