Last Friday, July 1, 2011 my parents celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary. 50 YEARS!
On Friday Mom & Dad took their wedding party to dinner at the Applewood. She requested that I pop in and get some photos by the river. That is just what I did.
Here is Mom & Dad original wedding photo and a photo taken 50 years later.

On Saturday, June 2nd my parents wanted to go to on of the gaming boats for a buffet dinner. We chose to dine at Grand Victoria in Rising Sun, Indiana, just a short 10 minute drive for everyone (except my sis and her family that lives in Indianapolis).
Awww - the bride and groom of 50 years!

Yes, I made my parents take off their wedding rings so I could photograph them. :P This was the 1st time my dad has had his ring off in 50 years. I should have taken a photo of the indent in left middle finger from the ring.
