50th anniversary fun

Friday, August 5th was a beautiful summer day - in 2011 and 50 years ago in 1961 when my parents got married.
We celebrated their golden anniversary as a family with a sailboat ride in the Hudson River....
..and then dinner at an amazing waterfront restaurant with views of Manhattan.
It was a fun day with a lot of laughs. But the best part was seeing my parents' faces when they saw the gallery-wrapped canvas of the grandchildren! At first, my mother didn't believe we met for a beach weekend back in June.

What fun you guys must have had! Sorry to hear you got a little seasick coming in on the boat. But, all in all, it looks like you had a wonderful time. Good job on the surprise Lynn and John

Best day ever! Family together and great weather, combined with 50 years of memories. Watching the grandchildren play and hug was a super gift too. Thanks Lynn, John and Debbie for a special effort. Daddy has been talking about it every day since Friday and I think for many more days ahead.
