a diamond occasion

60 Years! My parents have been married for 60 years...so the 3 Cartwright kids, Veronica, Chris and myself, hopped in the car on Thursday and drove to celebrate the occasion. It was blast. Despite the fact it was dreadfully hot in Las Vegas, we were grateful for good air conditioning. We may not have won at Bingo or the slots, but we went to the pub, had tons of laughs and celebrated the event that took place 60 years ago...
My parents are as cute today as they were 60 years ago...and we are grateful that their bond has lasted so many years....without it...we three would not be here...

Angela, I know how you feel. My parents were married 67 years when my Mom passed away! Their generation ROCKS! Your parents are adorable, and you can SEE the love in their eyes for their children.

It is so wonderful to see a close family like yours.

Congratulations to your parents--what a wonderful occasion to celebrate, and how nice for them that all 3 of their children came to share the special day! Treasure every moment you spend with them-you all are so very lucky to have each other.

Hi Angela,
Going completely off-topic here but I was just wondering if you have any plans to resurrect the Sound of Music documentary you and Heather were planning several years ago but were halted from continuing, in the near or not-so-near future? It would be wonderful to see.

60 years -Wow! That is wonderful! My parents have been married 56 years. Aren't we lucky to have parents who are together and love and respect each other??? It's a great example.

My husband and I are celebrating our 29th tomorrow -July 1! (Wonder if he will remember!) just kidding- he always does!

Congratulations to your parents!

How lucky they are to have found true love, and how lucky you are to have such a close family. They are too cute for words.

Oh what wonderful pictures! I know I am a bit late but Happy Anniversary to them! 60 years - that is just incredible and so inspiring!

I passed all your well wishes onto my parents and they thank you all...
I believe the picture of them as a young couple was shot in Brighton, England.
And...the documentary...well it's a story I should publish one day...but 'our idea' was used (and I'm being polite here) on the last Anniversary Edition of SOM. However, stay tuned...Heather and I have other things up our sleeves...Wish us luck this time around!
