We had a great turn out, as only one person out of 70 RSVP'ed with a no! Not hard to believe when you are celebrating two important mile stones:
1. Steve and Lynne both retired after a combined total of 71 years of service at the Cincinnati VA hospital.
2. 30 years of wedded bliss from June 6th, 1981 to June 6th, 2011.
It was a huge team effort! We coordinated between all the girls in 3 different states (WI, OH, KY). Once we landed on our Hillbilly Chic Picnic theme it was time to manage through the details! Everyone, pitched in and we divided up the tasks to pull the party off! At times it was difficult to manage the communications across everyone, but in true sisterly form we worked it out as only sisters can!
|Zach ran to Paw Paw at the surprise!|
|Mackenzie was also right there to greet them!|
It was definitely a hot one pushing almost 95 degrees, but we found ways to keep cool! It also helps that when you are in good company things like the heat seem to fade away.
