We would catch up with each other, then split apart again to come together again in some other place.
After visiting the gardens a bit, we went split up again. Some went to the hotel to freshen up for dinner and take naps. I took Z up the mountain. He's never been to any mountains before, even the small ones like Pine Mountain.
Andy and his fiance Angi made sure everyone had something to drink as we waited for our room to be ready. They put us in a private room because there was a golf tournament going on over at the Gardens and they'd be drunk and in the main dining room. The staff wanted to make sure we had a quiet and dignified celebration...
Jerry arrived a little late, but in good form. As usual, we have several pictures of people taking pictures... Count your lucky stars I'm only posting one! Jerry was showing off his phone. It's one of those Droid things - and when you drop it, it says "God Dammit!" Pretty funny stuff.
I will spare you all the pictures of food. It was plentiful and delicious. I indulged myself in grilled salmon, which, if available, I will go for every single time. I LOVE salmon! Z got a Philly cheesesteak sandwich because he was curious and always wanted to try one. He didn't want the mushrooms or peppers or onion and got teased about just wanting a meat sandwich, so he relented and had onion on it as well. He loved it.
After all that food, there was cake! The whole bottom tier of Matt and Dawon's wedding cake was leftover, so I re-iced the top and redecorated it so that it became the 50th Anniversary Cake! It was delicious!
