My parents have been married for 60 years this month so of course we had a party.
My brother and children did most all of the planning and hosting and they did a very good job coming up with a party that was perfect for my parents and the occasion.
Nina baked the cake. She decorated it with important symbols from my parents life.
She also made a jar full of yummy lemon curd to serve with the cake.
The party was held at a very nice Italian restaurant in our town.
Jimmy worked there for 10 years so the restaurant went all out with the best food and nicest room.
Nina and Jimmy did the decorations.
They used lots of pictures of my parents.
The smaller pictures are in Kerr jars because my parent's last name is Kerr.
Nina and Uncle Jimmy waiting for the party to begin.
from one end of the table -
the pretty lady in blue that is giving her order to Jessica, is my Aunt Betty.
Her picture is also in photo header on this blog.
Elizabeth and Gavin enjoying their drinks with straws.
Gavin was very happy when Pa and Roro cut the cake.
He loves cake and thinks his Aunt Nina makes the best cakes in the world.
this picture shows more of the room.
Jimmy's longtime friend and coworker, Jessica, was our server and she did a great job of making the dinner so nice.
