An Anniversary and A Birthday Bash


My beautiful paternal grandparents Joseph and Mary.  They were married on this date in 1905. I can not locate a wedding photo but this was an anniversary photo. Mygrandfather was a wonderful man. He worked a full time job and cared for my grandmother as she had health problems most of her life. They raised a wonderful phamily and lost two young sons both at the age of 3.  My Uncle "Moon" passed away young too in his 50's and my dad was the lone male sibling left. He had 5 sisters and he loved each one. I wanted to share these beautiful BoJon;s on their anniversary day.

I always loved a story my cousin Sammy told me about our grandparents. We lost him too soon too but he told me a cute story. He went to their house every SONday to watch baseball and my grandfather would make them root beer floats. I get such a kick out of that story. I pray they all had a happy heavenly reunion. 

Those who came before us, they made the path we walk on today. without them we would cease to exist.  I love knowing all the little things about those I loved and knew and those I never knew but learned so much about. 

Happy Heavenly Anniversary to my beautiful Grandparents 116 years after their marriage.

The birthday girl got a pretty pink and purple sporty car for her first birthday.

A Unicorn cake for this tiny girl.

She had an individual cake for herself. She was enjoying that unicorn horn (cone).

Little fashion diva Shea has a new stack of cool clothing.

Rebekah and Zach took some great photos! Shea was winding down on that cake and had a nice warm bath shortly after taking this photo.

Grandpa's buddy Blake had a good time. He is a fearless boy. I still have photos to sort on our phones. I will be back with more. Have a great night.

What a super tribute to your grandparents, Anne! I love this anniversary picture -- him looking proud and dare, I say, both looking bemused at something the photographer may have said. (Wouldn't you love to know?)

Shea-Shea's birthday bash looks like such fun! That's some cool cake!

This post reminds me of that song from Fiddler on the Roof: Sunrise, Sunset, Sunrise, Sunset. Swiftly flow the years, one season following another ... laden with happiness and tears.
Happy SONday!

That was such a nice story about your Grandparents. I used to love root beer floats. That sure looked like a mighty nice party for the little sweetie one.
