50th Wedding Anniversary

"50 Years together in life's journey is not about arriving at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting ... holy shit ... 
what a ride!"

Jenny and the cupcakes that she helped to make.

That is what it said on my Aunt and Uncle's invitation.  We were surprising Nanny, my aunt, on Sunday.  It was also her birthday.  We all gathered in the community room of a nice apartment complex over by Valley River Center in Eugene.  There were easily 100 people there.  I took 200 pictures and put them in a slide show and shared them on Facebook.  There were a lot of people that I didn't know, so I decided to not post them all on here.  Just some of my favorites.
