There is a story behind my Grandparents meeting and wedding which has remained a bit of a secret all my life. I think it is perhaps time I asked my Grandma about it ... before she is too old to remember any more. She caused quite a scandal marrying a divorcee in 1951 but it wasn't until I was 15 and a different part of the story was printed on the front page of the national newspaper, that I found out he also had a family with his first wife! But regardless of the mystery surrounding their early years together I finally got my hands on their wedding photo last year when they celebrated their Diamond Wedding Anniversary!
All I can think about when I see this photo is Grandma's gigantic bouquet!!!! Grandpa certainly looks very happy. They are both still alive now although Grandpa has finally had to move into a home just recently. They had five children together and have lived a happy life. They now also have 16 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren! We are a very rowdy bunch when we all get together :-)
Many years latter one of their great grandchildren was born on their anniversary. Happy 5th Birthday to my beautiful nephew ...
We went to his house for a BBQ and the kids had what will probably be their last swim of the summer as the weather has FINALLY started to turn. A short story today with a few pictures.
