Today my parents are celebrating their 48th wedding anniversary so I’d like to share some pictures with you of their time together.
I’m not sure what year this picture is, it’s when they were in high school and they were dating. They broke up when Mom went to college. Dad didn’t want her to go, and she did so they went their separate ways.
Then at some point they reconnected and here is their wedding photo from Sept 11, 1964.
This next photo is from Christmas of 1972, we are at my grandparents (Bill and Mary’s) apartment in Texarkana.
This is from the early 70′s sometime. Christmas again, I guess that’s just when most people took pictures back then.
Here they are March of 1978 – this was a fishing trip to Mexico.
Here they are again, not sure what they were doing but as usual, they were doing it together.
This next picture is from their 25th wedding anniversary party that we had for them. Three of us kids are in the photo; Butch, John and myself.
I’m not sure where the 90′s went, couldn’t find any pictures from then. Here they are in 2010. I love this picture.
Here they are in 2011.
Here they are February of 2012 standing in front of the house my mother grew up in on Walnut Street in Texarkana.
Here they are today, on their 48th Anniversary! I wish you many more happy years together Mom and Dad!
