They're Golden!

I had excellent fun this weekend at Virginia Beach attending the 50th wedding anniversary of my Aunt Ginny and Uncle Bob. (I also represented the Gilberts and Brothers, who were in Alabama having as much fun as they could manage without my presence.) Aunt Ginny, for those who like to keep track, is my maternal grandmother's sister. Also in attendance were all three of her children and their spouses - no mean feat - as well as all three grandchildren, my grandmother, an uncle, aunt, and cousin as well as Calvin who, I believe, was in the wedding party.

We had a delicious dinner (well, mid-afternoon meal, whatever you like to call it) on the porch that featured grilled chicken and smoked beef. Also green beans, squash casserole, salad, and rolls. Then adjourned to the garage for champagne and cake. Many of us also went to the beach (Sandbridge for those of you familiar with the area) and sat around, walked, etc. It was a beautiful, but hot day. Beth and Will got in some ocean time. More pictures to follow.

We'll, we had a wonderful time in Tuscaloosa with the Brothers and many of their relatives. Suzanna is very cute and I just can't believe that Kerry could have any trouble with such an exciting little girl. She's hardly two years old, and she kept a dozen adults entertained by hopping, talking, and swimming in her backyard pool. Temperatures hovered around 100 degrees; welcome to summer in central Alabama.
Thanks for the pictures. I'm looking forward to seeing other pictures of my relatives.
FYI the people at the anniversary who were are the wedding were Ginny and Bob, Mother, Bick, and Calvin. If we had gone, I would have been another person at both. Sorry we missed it.
Love
Mom
