25th Anniversary Party and Vacation

25 years ago I married my best friend. Time sure flies when you're having fun. When I stop and think about it I realize we sure have come a long way since those young ages of 19 and 22. We have two sons that have grown into responsible, hard working young men that we are very proud to call ours, a daughter in law that is sweet, beautiful and a loving mom to our youngest blessing known as Khloë.

I just love this picture of her with her new guitar from Maui. She was going around saying, "I Rock!"

The boy and girl topper on the cake is from our wedding. My mom saved it all these years and gave it to my sister who made all of the cakes, cupcakes and cake pops for the party.

Cutting the cake.

And this is how it went down... (see that evil little look in his eye?)

I know this one is blurry, but you get the picture.

Yep, just like our wedding day (-:

And a couple more civilized pictures... Son Christopher on the left, hubby and I holding Khloë in the middle, daughter in law Robin and son Michael on the right.

Khloë reading us a card. She's so serious.

This picture includes us, my sister Michelle (Sinplicity Cupcakes) and her family.

 It was an amazing (and a little emotional) day and we couldn't have asked for anything more. We walked in to a beautifully decorated party with yummy food and desserts, hosted by our son and daughter in law. We were surrounded by the people we love most. Thank you to each and every family member and friend that spent the day with us.

This year being the big "25" I decided to surprise hubby and take him to Maui. It was our first time to Maui and our first big vacation. We've always done things closer to home like Disneyland, Great America, Marine World and things like that with the kids. This time it was just the two of us. I shared a few pictures last week, but thought I would add a few more now that I have gone through all of them.

Going to our first Luau.

Our first (and last) helicopter ride.

A day on the beach.

Whales fighting for the love of a girl.

Real bananas!

Beautiful sunset at dinner.

I guess this turned into a pretty long, picture heavy post. Thank you for stopping by and sharing our memories with us.
