It was a lovely day yesterday here in Minnesota..almost too warm as the temperatures hovered in the high seventies.
After my parents cut their small cake the gathering began. There was no formal program..one of their friends sang a beautiful anniversary song for them.
It is a good thing my baby brother was not in charge of the menu..he asked where the red and green Lutheran Jello was?
We served fruit in a basket that was carved by my son on law Handy Andy..he is in the black shirt in this photo..he is talking to Missy..she is married to my nephew ( they live next door to us). My sister is stirring, and my sister in law from Oregon is the paparazzi. Anyway on with the food..pickles, fresh fruit, carrots and celery, a couple of different salads that my Aunt made, fabulous potato salad, buns and pulled pork in Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. Decent fare for a Sunday Afternoon Snack!
Food is hard to judge…but apparently no one went away hungry.
From the left: my other baby brother who lives next door, she who sees robins first, my sister, my sisters husband, Mom, Far Guy, Dad, me, my baby brother from Oregon and his wife. I am the oldest and there is quite an age span. I am three years older than my baby brother and nine years older than my other baby brother..he will be turning the big 50 very soon and I am almost sixteen years older than my sister.
Thank you to everyone who pitched in to help make the day a success, especially Jen and Far Guy who have been my “rocks” throughout the past week. I am tired today..I will probably take a nap later:)
