70 Years and still going strong!!!

I want to introduce you to two of my most favorite people, my grandparents, DeVere & Marguritte Leavitt. These are my mom's parents and they just celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary! All I can say is WOW!! My grandpa also celebrated his 95th birthday this week. What an inspiration they are to me. They still live in their own home and my mom told me recently that my grandpa asked for his horse to be brought onto his property (instead of his son's) so that he could have something to do every day!! They really are amazing. In honor of their 70th, my family threw them a big party last night. I'm sad that we were unable to attend - but so it goes when you live so far away. I did call my grandma a few weeks ago to tell her our exciting news about expecting another baby and she was so excited...even though she promptly called my mom right after to scold her for lying to her the day before about if I was expecting or not!!! Can you picture a 93 year old woman scolding her daughter??!! I thought that was pretty funny. Anyways, I love these two people more than I can say and only hope that I can be as happy and in love with Kevin in 65 years as they still are.
Here are a couple shots of them dancing at their party...thank you to my cousin, Kelsey, for sending me the pics!!

Oh man, do I ever love them too! They're the closest thing to my grandparents there are. They still look incredible and are so sharp I'm sure. Simply amazing!
