This past week we have been at the seaside, enjoying the vast horizon, the seafood, the comfortable beach-house my dad and my Aunt Bonny graciously let us stay at, the after dinner card game "oh shucks", and lots of quality time with my paternal family. This year was special however, because we celebrated my grandparents' (Mayme and Papa as we affectionately call them) 60th wedding anniversary. To celebrate we had a very special brunch, an afternoon ride down the inter-coastal waterway in a pontoon boat, and an adventurous dinner in which we made a clam-bake! I am so blessed to have grandparents who have been married for 60 years and still love each other more every day.

How cool that your grandparents are still married and happy! And that they can celebrate with their Great Granddaughter!
I was wondering if you were away, since there were no blogs for a few days :-)
