The Great Anniversary Party to Plan!
I was looking at my dad’s pictures from when he was a child, and it dawned on me that he was going to be turning seventy years old this year. I knew that they were going to say no, when I asked my parents if they wanted a party for him, but he had been through so much I decided I was going to do it anyways. I contacted all of our friends and family to get everyone on board and I got a party bus rental service for Toronto residents to set up the ride for my parents to their party. I say their party because my parents got married when they were twenty years old, and this was also going to be a very special party for them. It is going to be their fiftieth wedding anniversary and I thought it would be great to get two parties for them into one. I wouldn’t want my mom to think that it was just for my dad’s birthday. I wanted her to know that we recognize that being with the same person for fifty years is very difficult.
My brothers both work a lot of hours so I knew that it was going to be hard to get to count on them to help me plan this party. I decided that I was going to have to hire a party planner to help me. I had to give all of the information to the planner, including all of the names and addresses of the people that we were going to invite because she was going to address all of the invites for us. I thought that this was a great thing and I knew that we were going to be doing a good thing, since we haven’t been together in years.
