Our 50th Wedding Anniversary – Continued

Roy and Deb were our chauffeurs to The Loft in downtown Lancaster. (Jere and Kristen took us home.)

After finding a parking spot, we walked toward the restaurant and were surprised by the clip clop of horses behind us and turned around to see two city policemen.

DSC_6671The chocolate covered strawberries were a gift from the chef.

It was a delightful evening for us.

We love that our children enjoy looking for unusual, local restaurants that we have never visited.


We told our children that we wanted a quiet celebration at a local restaurant – and asked that they do not plan a large party. We are grateful that they obey their parents. 🙂

Encase you have forgotten, or are a new reader of my blog, our big anniversary celebration was in the winter of 2012 when we took our entire family on a seven-day cruise to the Bahamas.

Family 2012   We treasure the family that God has given us and can’t imagine life without you.
