The big 5 0 ! Fifty years of Marriage

If you have been following along, my favorite Aunt and Uncle invited us to Minnesota to join them in celebrating  their 50 years of marriage.  

Saturday was the day for a great lunch and fabulous dinner.  We were all told to wear something golden for the dinner.  My aunt wore something golden all weekend long.

Lunch started with Chicago Hot Dogs.  Why.. because after six years of dating Carole moved to Chicago for a new job.  No ring on her finger.  Well, Walt quickly moved to Chicago as well and as they say, the rest is history.  50 years of history later,  YAY, Aunt Carole, way to go.  One smart man, Uncle Walt.

The Nelson's, Carey, Walt, Carole, Sue, Mike

Beads imported from Louisiana from St. Patrick's Day Parade.

Me and my Aunt and cousin Carey.  Colleen bought the gold hair additions that I later cut short to match my hair length.  It was driving me crazy.  I kept thinking bugs were on me.

The girls found a salon in Stillwater that did their eye makeup.  

Paul and Donovan ready for Chicago Dogs.  They were delish!

More eye treatment.

Next up the golden dinner....


  1. Happy Anniversary to your aunt and uncle. 50 years of marriage is very rare these days. I think I need some of that eye makeup! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. Where is your gold woman!!! ;-). I can't wait to see more! Your family has the BEST parties and holidays!

  3. Okay, this is just wonderful, funny, amazing. I've visited your blog this first time, and LOVED it - because I think it's sweet that you love your Aunt and Uncle, AND. . . this Wordsworth poem is my favorite!!!! I love daffodils and memorized this when I was a teen. From the name of your blog, I knew exactly what you were referring to, and that I would love it. I'll spend the weekend looking at your older posts.

    I'm new to blogging myself, but I will be back to read you many times over. . . . I wandered lonely as a cloud . . .
