The beginning of my parents' 60th Wedding Anniversary celebrations....

For nearly a year, our family have been organising my parents' 60th Wedding Anniversary. I organised a party down in Rustington (where my parents live) and my sister organised the family party up in Cirencester where the rest of the family live). So, on the actual day, 23rd August, we all gathered together at The Rustington Manor Hotel and Celebrated! The first image is of the table.
These are the place names l created, with their choice of menu on the back ( Tony's idea). The waiters said it was a great help to them.

 The family all gathered together.
 For once... me caught laughing with my eyes open!
 My Aunty Gill catching history!
 I know my sister hates this image but the whole family love it.
 My Dad giving his speech.

 My gorgeous husband.
 My niece and my father talking.
 My gorgeous son Andrew.
 The Queen keeping an eye on the Party!
 My gorgeous daughter Jenny.
The chairs arranged for The Family Photo.....set up by Andrew with the camera on a tripod and one of the waiters waiting to press the button!
Dad waiting for the family.........
Most of the family waiting...for Granny to stop talking and sit down! Ha!
Finally...back row:- Uncle Graham (my mother's brother), Andrew (my son) , Jenny (my daughter), Paul (my nephew), Sandra (my sister), Tony (my husband), Beth (my neice) Aunty Gill( my mum's sister), Uncle Bill ( Gill's husband). Behind my! My parents in front row!!!
 All back to the house for coffee etc!

This is my Uncle Graham....he looks so much like Bampa, his father. He has Bampa's nose and that gorgeous smile. I have not seen him for years and years and it was so good to see him again. The sad thing was that his wife Aunty Beryl is ill and was not able to come.
This is the cake all packed up ready for the party tomorrow. This party is for my parents' friends tomorrow. The couple on the top of the cake, peeking out of the box are the original model couple from 60 years ago!

So ended the first party of the week......2 more to go!
