Project 365 - Running SHOES, Love and Fish...

LOVE... today at 1:30 p.m. to be precise, marked the 50th Wedding Anniversary for my Aunt Penny and Uncle Dick... my dad was the Best Man... from the pictures, it was a SPECTACULAR day and, thank goodness, the still love each other, laugh together, and live everyday with as much fun as they did their first.  Long story short... they met on a blind date... dated for 3 months... Aunt Penny left for Europe for 3 months... a few weeks after she returned, Uncle Dick proposed and they were married 3 months later... WOW! 
Today we helped celebrate their anniversary with about 50 of their family members and closest friends at "Shanghi Reds" in Marina del Rey... check out the link... it is a BEAUTIFUL and AWESOME restaurant... the last time we were there was to celebrate Grandma Louise's 90th birthday... she was sure missed today!  Oddly, I didn't get a single picture of Aunt Penny and Uncle Dick today... but I did get some fun pictures of Mom and Dad and my sister and brother-in-law, Mary and John... they have been married 42 years and 11 years respectivly.  I love you guys!

SHOES...  It has been 10 years since I bought my last pair of running shoes... and with my triathlon training (if you didn't hear, I am doing a reverse sprint tri in March) I NEEDED NEW SHOES!  These New Balance babies fit like a glove... I even bought "Yankz" shoelaces (speed shoelaces) for my tri training... so I can yank those babies right off, stick on my cycling shoes and jump on the bike without losing much time.  OH... YEAH...

FISH... The entrance into Shanghi Red's is a tropical paradise of landscape, wooden bridges, waterfalls and Coy ponds.  I just love this picture... Pam... do you approve? ;-)

I made it through my first month of Project 365 - HOLY COW!!!  Looking forward to 11 more months of fun and memories!  Have a GREAT day!

I have been following your blog from the beginning. I appreciate your scrapping, but I have to admit I enjoy the personal family stuff more. Your mother is so beautiful, you should include more pictures of her!
