40th Anniversary

Isla and Everett celebrated BOTH grandparents 40th Anniversary this great is that!!

My brothers and sisters organized a surprise breakfast for my parents along with a gift of "40 Years of Memories" letters. Basically we contacted family and friends and asked them to write a note about their favorite memory from the past 40 years of my mom and dad.  We started 3 months in advance collecting letters and ending up with over 50 letters.  We were in awe of all the people that we heard from...old friends, new friends, friends from Ireland, family members ranging from grandchildren, children, siblings, nieces, nephews and cousins. It was amazing and the letters made us all laugh and cry...they were incredible. The surprise breakfast was a hit and had over 60 people come by The Parker's to pay tribute to their 40 years of marriage.

Brandon and I are just so proud of the fact that we both come from such great families with parents that have made their marriages work and built a legacy of faith, love, and support for their children and grandchildren to model. So blessed!
