Sometimes you must need to paddle on the river. Today was one of those days. Jo Jo, Mark, and I went out. We got upstream. After a while,we took a detour on Fishpot Creek. The water was high and we were able to paddle back a ways. We stopped to try and identify a very rusty car on the shore.
We never did figure out what type of car it is, but it was fun exploring.
My in-laws celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Danelle and Brian organized a party at Cyrano’s to celebrate. Many years before, Henry and Carol had one of their first dates at Cyrano’s, making the venue especially appropriate.
We were very excited to have a great turnout. All of Henry and Carol’s siblings, children, and grandchildren were there, as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
It’s not a party without a little fun influencing the next generation of trouble-makers!
I didn’t catch the joke, but there was a lot of laughing!
With the grandkids….
Brian and Danelle each said a few words talking about their parents.
It seems that the Haake family has not quite cornered the market on goofiness. Carol with her brother and sister made sure the columns at Cyrano’s would be able to stand up against some massive pressure.
As my kids get older, I realize what an effort it is to be a family. Everybody has their own agenda and events that are important to them. But Henry and Carol do a great job inviting us to come over and hang out. And they are always fun events! The excess dessert is also fun 🙂
We also celebrated Henry’s birthday, a great get together.
