Today we went separate ways....  Scott and I spent time celebrating Mom and Dad DeGooyer's 50th Wedding Anniversary.  Kotten Kandy and Fig Newton babysat, toured Temple Square, went shopping and ate Thai Food with their cousin, Davis.  So this post is about two different stories today.
I asked Fig Newton to take pictures for me - since I wouldn't be with them in all their fun activities today.  I told her it was her "job."  She sweetly complied!  And she is a great photographer.
First: They toured temple square.
This picture of the Salt Lake City Temple looks professional!
Way to go, Fig Newton!
The flowers are always lovely at Temple Square!
And, of course, they got to see the famous Christus statue!
Kotten Kandy was excited to show Fig Newton the sights....
I adore this picture on the temple steps of Fig Newton!
Then: They went shopping.
Look at the joy on their sweet faces!
Fig Newton looking over Salt Lake City....
Kotten Kandy at the fountains at City Creek Mall.
Somehow they found Chocolate Covered Cheesecake!
YUM!!!  But they didn't save any for us....
Love this girl!
And I love this girl too!
I joke that these two girls look exactly like sisters because of their glasses....
Finally: Cousin Davis took them to eat "authentic" Thai food.  Fig Newton was even able to speak Thai to their servers!
The Thai Food was WONDERFUL, according to reports from these two girls!
Mango and Sticky Rice is apparently a huge treat!
Sah wat dee!
Sah wat dee!

OUR UNIVERSE:  These two got married 50 years ago today!  They are an inspiration to Scott and I and we hope to emulate them in many ways (including longevity in marriage!)
These are two of our heroes!
We love you, mom and dad!
Happy 50th!
Lunch with these great people at Zupas.
These two love to laugh!
That's part of what has kept them together for 50 years!
Kotten Kandy said it best when she said,
"Thank you for getting married 50 years ago, so I could be born!"
All 5 of these kids think the same thing!
Scott wanted a Selfie at the temple that started his parent's eternal marriage!
Ooops.  He did it again!
And yet, another Selfie Fail...
But we enjoyed dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory.
I LOVE this crazy family!  They are mine!  And because of choices made 50 years ago, they are eternally mine!  Thank you, Mom and Dad for the legacy!


  1. Glad you all had a great day. I'm glad they were married 50 years ago also, without them being married I wouldn't have Scottie to make me laugh :D

  2. Looks like a perfect DeGooyer day to me! Happy 50th
    DeGooyers! Gaydra
