30th Anniversary

Posted 08-09-2008 at 09:04 AM by DonnaRedRockMom
Well another August is upon us....for me & my Larry is means a month of celebrating our love story

....it is #30 this year and we are at this moment at a loss for how to celebrate

....long story short 2 plans we had fell thru and now we are in search of the perfect plan

...for those who do not know us perfect for us is not always perfect for others

....lets see what some of the other ones were like:

5th...goofy night of waiting for a delivery and eating kabobs made by my parents....Larry killed the cooler...don't ask

10th...hot dogs on the Seminary lawn....we had them announce it and we partied with the kids

15th...the famous B&B that turned out to be "haunted"...and the hottest day on record in this part of Kentucky

20th....we threw a party to celebrate that we had no idea why we left our home in Colorado and what were we doing in Kentucky...what fun to mix people together from our past and present....strange party but the family had fun

25th...one of our favorites....wilderness camping in our mountains outside Durango, Colorado....the site overlooked where we lived when we got married


and there you have it....there has been lots of living in those 30 years....great times....some happy some sad but we would not change any of them....they are ours and we celebrate each and every one of them

    First - congratulations! That's a huge milestone

    Suggestions? Ever gone on a Mississippi River paddle wheel boat? Not quite "roughing it" as your other 'adventures' appear to be, but I always thought it would be a great way to see some countryside

    ...thanks for the idea

    We have a real old fashion steam paddle wheel boat here on the Ohio River....it is one of only a few remaining paddle wheels still running.....We have taken it many times....and yes it is a great way to see the sights....our boat races the other remaining ones each year during the Derby Festival...they are brought in from the Mississippi

    ....we have also taken a few river rides on the Green River near Mammoth Cave in paddle wheels

    funny we had one of the few remaining narrow gauge steam train in our town when we lived in Durango

    ....guess we are drawn to places with old school transportation

    ....we are the kind of people that when we live somewhere we take advantage of where we live....sometimes the greatest adventures are in our front yards...and a few in the back

    take care,

    Congratulations on the anniversary - in this day and age - that's a whopper! Well this is what it says on the web about 30th Wedding Anniversaries:
    Traditional 30th wedding anniversary gifts have a theme of Pearls.
    A Contemporary or Modern 30th anniversary gift has a theme of Diamond Jewellery.
    The Flowers associated with the 30th anniversary are Sweet pea
    Apparently the pearls of Kentucy are famous, and they're the official gemstone of the State!

    Here's a recent article (September 17, 1888) from the NY Times!
    'the most valuable pearls in America are from Kentucky'!

    What a great combination of remembering the anniversary and Kentucky, for your partner to give you some Kentuckian freshwater pearl jewellery (maybe with some diamonds thrown in!

    For events the 2 of you (or the family/friends) could enjoy together, here's a couple happening this weekend in Louisville
    (I love the beatles! )

    Of course for the anniversary night, you could try a local oriental restaurant (I'm sure there's some in your area with 'Pearl' in the name?).

    If you want to wait until September and you have a head for heights!
