Wordless (nearly) Wednesday - Our Engagement Weekend
Wordless (nearly) Wednesday
Our Engagement Weekend
Haven't seen this photo in years - just came across it, looking for something else (as usual!). This is April 58 - in my parents' farm house, in front of the fireplace - we were each home from our respective colleges (in Ames and Cedar Falls, Iowa) for the Easter Weekend, and announced we planned to get married - with two years of college to go... Well, that got both sets of parents involved quickly! ;-)
P.S. It worked out ok, we have now been married 51 years and counting...
On left, my parents, Pete and Eileen Smith, and youngest brother, Paul; Nancy and Bill (Yes, we are wearing matching shirts - she made!); her parents, Glenn and Ruth Bolger, with youngest sister, Janice; my maternal grandparents, Paul and Dorothy Kinnick.
Many more memories... ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
