The Weekend

Isn't it a beautiful picture? No I did not take it, but I can see going for a walk across the bridge on a beautiful fall afternoon.  Can't you? I just wish my pictures looked like that.
 
The weekend was so busy, but we couldn't have asked for a better day. Pictures will be coming when I get them from the kids. They took pictures all afternoon and the ceremony was even video. Our daughter wasn't use to her ipad, but I can't wait to see it. 
 
Hubby found out that his clothes does not fit at the present time. We tried his biggest pair of dress pants, but they just would not work. I didn't think that they were going to. I think he is retaining fluid on his stomach, but I haven't got anyone else to answer my questions about that.  

One of the cute things that happened, when father was going to bless us with holy water, the two youngest grandsons came up standing on each side and blew bubbles over our head. It worked and was a precious moment that we will remember for along time.  I have a bouquet of fall flowers and a bouquet of white roses that I carried as I walked down the isle to my hubby. Father said we could kiss all during the ceremony that would keep people awake. He did a wonderful job.
 
Then on Sunday before going to see hubby, I went to a spaghetti dinner that my youngest grandson's boy scout troop was having. It was enjoyable and I got to meet some of their friends. 

The eyes are doing good and I will get prescription reading glasses in three weeks when I go down for a follow-up.  I am going to go by myself. I haven't driven twice after dark and had no problems so I will try again. 
 
Have a wonderful week. Take care

I am just catching up on blogs, Shirley. So, I am sorry I haven't visited before this. A belated Happy Anniversary to you. 50 years is a long time and I am so happy that you were able to celebrate with a ceremony. I can't wait to see some pictures of your wonderful day.

That is really good news about your eyes. Be careful driving-I know you are! Love to you- Diana

Shirley, I am late visiting your blog..sorry. I too love that beautiful picture. I would love to be able to walk around beautiful places like that.
Shirley...you have the right, the absolute right to pin your husband 's doctor down for some honest answers to your questions. Be demanding. That is your husband that you truly love more than anyone else, so don't be shy.
I am wishing you blessings and a great weekend. xoxo,Susie
