Today is the 40th anniversary of my sister Renee's wedding to my brother-in-law Tim. I was only 12 when they were married but I do remember all of the hoopla and how they flew off to Hawaii for a nearly two year honeymoon as Tim was in the U.S. Army, stationed at Schofield Barracks on Oahu. Tough way to start a marriage, eh?!
Renee and Tim's three children threw a surprise anniversary party for them today and invited family members from both sides. Now I know what you're thinking -- how can it be a surprise if it's on their actual anniversary date??? Easy -- last Saturday they had a 40th anniversary mass said for them at the church where they were married and many of today's guests were there. This was in the church bulletin for that week:

My niece Lauren made up a nice picture board, using many of the pictures from my Mom's collection.
