Mom and Dad Forever

Mom and Dad on a date in 1958

This past June we celebrated my mom and dad’s 50th wedding anniversary.  Although they don’t like big celebrations in their honour, at our prompting they hosted a small reception for family and close friends to mark the occasion.

Can’t find a shot of the parents together but here’s a nice one of me ‘n my hot mama 🙂

A few weeks later we celebrated just as a family when they took all of us on an Alaskan cruise.  We boarded the ship at Canada Place on a sunny Sunday afternoon and slowly headed out under the Lions Gate bridge for a week heading north.  What a nice way to hang out together, no meals to plan, we’re all in the same place, and some excellent sight-seeing opportunities.  A very different experience from India, it’s a bit of a culture shock really…
