I surprised my folks with a party at Vivian and Bernie’s house, celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary. They were the sponsors at the College Ministry for 9 years, while my sister and I were at UCLA. A bunch of the kids showed up for the party. They all have kids of their own, many of which are in college now. It was great to see our friends from college. Some I haven’t seen in a very very long time.
Buca di Beppo catering was dropping off the food as we approached. My mom was saying, ‘ooo, look someone’s having Buca!’.
They were truly surprised. I was glad it worked out.
Vivian got a special cake with my dad and mom’s picture, from Vivian’s wedding, which was 23 years ago.
