I remember it rained on our wedding day and not just a little. It rained all day long in massive amounts with flooding on the roads all the way to our honeymoon destination at Disney World. Do you remember all the frogs jumping in the road in our headlights through Florida? We were laughing about how many there were and I was telling the little froggies to stop getting in the road. I remember once we arrived at The Polynesian Resort at 2:30 in the morning we were exhausted and our champagne and chocolate covered strawberries in our room were warm since they had sat there so long.
I do know one thing they say it is good luck to get married on a rainy day and I guess they are right.
Do you remember this? This was in 1974 when we were dating. OMG look at my hair. I tried to go longer, but always end up back with it short. I needed a flat iron back then.
This is probably one of our first professional photos taken at good old Olan Mills. Do they still exist? I think it may be time to get a new picture taken.
I can't believe I actually fixed myself up in the hospital after giving birth to our son in 1979.
By the birth of our daughter in 1980 I didn't seem to care what I looked like.
Oh, and I don't know how you could stand my permed hair. Oh, those were the days.
Moving on past the bad hair days we have been very fortunate to take some fantastic trips until the economy went belly up several years ago. This Alaska cruise was one of my favorites. Maybe we can go again after you retire.
I think we were feeling very good here at our daughter's wedding reception. We were through writing all those checks and now it was over and we were handing her over to our son in law.
This will always be one of my favorite photos of y'all dancing at her wedding. I still tear up looking at it and I know you do, too.
Your such a good G Dad.
And our Bailey loves you, too.
Happy anniversary to my best friend and soul mate and here's to many more years together.
