My Parent's 40th Anniversary Bash

Our main reason for traveling to Wisconsin was to celebrate my parent's 40th wedding anniversary. They hit the milestone in June, but waited until August when my brother was back from the Middle East to host a big party. It was especially wonderful because many family and friends traveled from all over the country to join in the celebration. People traveled from NY, NJ, FL, NV, AZ, CA and WA. (Did I remember all the states?) It was a delightful party and fantastic to see so many people. I know that everyone loved the opportunity to get together.

They tried to get a portrait of all the family that made it to Wisconsin. This shot doesn't show everyone, but I loved how everyone was primping and laughing and talking.

My parents, their children, spouses and grandchildren.

My dad's siblings, nieces and nephews
