This was the invitation Caralee and her friend Gwenie Photoshopped and worked so hard on.
What a great weekend it was!! We kids had heard the cat was out of the bag but it really wasn't until the Columbia Basin Herald ran an article about them in Wenesday's newspaper. Funny thing is Mom & Daddy don't even take the paper! They had gone to the Dr's Thursday morning and someone there told them Happy Anniversary, then it happened again getting Lab work done so they asked how the person knew. Then they stopped by Dr Vernon's and asked Jac if she knew what was in the paper. She was like I don't know I don't take the paper. they found a copy and read all about themselves and that there was an Open House for them on Saturday! It was a terrific surprise!
All of us who were in town went over on Friday night surprised them and gave them their gifts. Shirts and a picture frame along with an list of the next days activitites. Beginning with Family Photos in the Park. We used the same photographer from Tracy and Eric's wedding an she did a great job despite the wind blowing that morning. She even suggested we all say a prayer for a bit of calm, so we did and the wind did die down enough for some good shots. Then she rememembered a fun tree down by the water and there was hardly any wind there at all. So most of the family groups were done there. Blane, Bruce Jay and I were our own "Family group".
