My parents anniversary is this Sunday, and seeing as I don't normally post on the weekend I thought I would do a little flashback post in honor of them.
This is my parents when they first started dating, see the class ring around my moms neck? I'm pretty sure that dad gave the ring to her on like their first date, and asked her to marry him on like the third date. So basically he was a goner from the get-go. Here's a funny story, the first time my dad kissed my mom she slapped him across the face. But that didn't stop my dad, HE HAD IT BAD.
I don't think she agreed to marriage after the THIRD DATE, but eventually she did and they started a family soon after. You see my brother down there? And that's Jo in the carrier, which by the way was the way that kids rode in the car back in the day. SAFETY FIRST.
I'm thankful for parents who have stayed the course all these years.
And now they can proudly say, "we've been married FIFTY ONE years."
FIFTY ONE, just let that sink in.
Happy Anniversary, mom and dad!
