We made plans to attend our good friends, Ted and Donna's 50th Anniversary this afternoon. The ceremony was held at the St.Anthony's of Padua Catholic church in the Woodlands with a reception dinner after at Rico's Mexican Grill which is just around the corner and also in the Woodlands. It's been awhile since we have had to deal with the Houston traffic on a weekend. It took us over 2 hours to get to Rayford, exit 19 to exit 73. gotta love those Houston drivers...!
They invited 50 friends and family members to their celebration, including two of their three daughters, some of their grandchildren, their brothers and sisters and many other family members. We rode over with Tommy and Susan, who are staying at Rayford and saw old friends Rick and Brenda who are now living in Memphis. It was good to see them and catch up a bit since it's been several years since we've seen them.
The food was good but the poor waiter that worked our banquet room was waaay overworked! He was kept very busy taking care of us and as far as I could tell, he made no mistakes. Other than drink refills, chips and salsa and other incidentals he did very well.
Unfortunately we were not able to stay for the cutting of the cake but it looked beautiful and we were told that it would be delicious. Our drive home took just under an hour, and the pups were glad to see us.
