Actually it was 58 years ago yesterday.
June 10, 1951 our parents got married.
It's a good thing they did!
I found some old pictures I just had to share,
so I'm using their anniversary as an excuse.
All the black and whites are 1951Doesn't the picture below look like a scene from an old movie?More of a close up
Here the newlyweds are outside the church with Mom's parents.
I don't know how her parents felt on that day, but they sure always talked so well of our Dad.
Grandma told Mom she could not get married until she graduated from college. So the week after graduation, she married our Dad.
I wonder if this church is still in Fresno. Does anyone know?
The guests, including my Mom's parents, right after the ceremony.
I wish we still wore hats like that.Mom always talked very fondly of their honeymoon. Sure looks like they were having a good time.
How could they have been this happy before the 8 of us were born? It's strange to think they existed before we did.
But I guess that's how it works.~To see how their family grew together go here.
I know the above is a little hard to read...it is 58 years old. But look at paragraph 4. Hazel Steinhauser won a prize at her shower...whoever she is. Can you even imagine a newspaper printing that today? Is it because they didn't have enough crime to write about?
How can they leave us hanging and not tell us what games they played, and what prize Hazel won?
And look at those who attended her bridal shower. Why are men on that list??
We are also so thankful to have Susan in our lives now.
I do believe Mom would really like her.
