18: They finally arrive----I'd say they were surprised!
20: Looks like Steve is in the dog house (just kidding)!
21: See Mark's shoes to the left? Well there's a story behind this picture. At Mom and Dad's 60th wedding anniversary we kidded Mom about the shoes she wore (of course she didn't know where she was going so she wore her shoes that had the toes cut out and were comfortable). Well Mark's shoes weren't that bad, but they were covered in grass (he had just cut the lawn) and he didn't have a clue where he was going either!
23: The toast was given by Cindi--she did a great job and congratulated her Mom and Dad on their 25 years together!
