What a Difference 50 Years Makes!

Rick's parents celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary in October.

We had a wonderful family celebration to honor them.
Almost all of the family were able to attend. We have family in California, Montana & Utah, so it was great that we could all get together.

Then: October 14, 1959

And today:
They are the parents of 7 children, 5 boys and 2 girls.
They have 5 daughters-in-law and 1 son-in-law.
They have 26 living grandchildren, 1 deceased grandson, 1 grandson-in-law and
1 great grandchild.

All Because Two People Fell in Love!

Happy 50th Anniversary!


  1. That is amazingly wonderful! And what a great legacy they are leaving for their family to follow...just wonderful! Thats what it's all Come say hi :D

  2. 50 years is such an accomplishment! I'm sure you did a lot to plan for the party.
    It was SO GOOD to see you on Saturday! We need to do that more often!

  3. That is pretty imressive! Congratulations to them! And all other couples trying to make it that long!

  4. That is so neat! 50 years is such a milestone.

    And the saying "Just because two people fell in love" you hear all the time but when you really stop to think about what it means after 50 years it is quite amazing.
