Someone has said 70 is the new 50. For those of us who have reached that milestone, we'd probably all agree it's true in our mind, but our body is debatable! ;-)
A maternal cousin [who I've blogged about before] hosted a surprise 70th birthday party for her husband last Saturday night. From the 'Save the Date' to the Invitation, the wheels were in motion for a wonderful family gathering.
Shortly after I got home from work, my hubby and I made our 40 mile drive to the destination. Surprise parties are difficult to keep secret, but the guest of honor was completely surprised when he entered the banquet room and everyone yelled "Surprise!"
The cousin who hosted the party is on the left, and her sister is on the right. I'm the shortie in the middle. I'm not the oldest of the 26 cousins, but I was the oldest among the cousins present Saturday night. Does that mean more wisdom for longer time on the planet? ;-)
