What are some special memories you have?

One of my best memories is our 50th Wedding Anniversary party; it was even more enjoyable than the original wedding!  Although our parents were not still around (and that can't be replaced), we had many friends from all over the world come, including Saudi Arabia and Iran, and relatives from the east coast came out for the week.  Many of us then went to Las Vegas for the weekend afterwards.  The event was held at a hotel near Disneyland.  Tom had prepared a slideshow presentation of our life together, and we renewed our wedding vows (although I couldn't stop laughing when the priest asked me if I would "promise to obey").  We also received letters from the Governor of California, State Senators, Cardinal Mahoney, and even the President of the United States.
