Yesterday my relatives Wayne and Barbarakay Royuk had a surprise party for their 40th wedding anniversary. Wayne is my first-cousin-once-removed. He and Barbarakay are among my favorite once-removeds. They’ve always been so friendly to me.
I went up to Arlington with my parents and the Pesters for the party. Wayne said his kids had successfully surprised them. There were lots of Arlington people there. It was fun to see them. I also saw my Uncle Paul and Aunt Linda. (Hi, Aunt Linda!)
My second cousins had chosen a green a yellow theme for their parents’ party. It was very festive. The refreshments were awesome. I was most excited to see butter mints. I’ve only ever seen them at weddings. And it’s been a LONG time since I’ve been to a wedding. There were white and yellow flower shapes, and leaf shapes. The leaves were mint-flavored. Yuck. But the flowers were flavored with almond-extract. Yum!
Congratulations on 40 years, Wayne and Barbarakay! Yay! (They don’t actually read Bradaptation, but I wish them well anyway)
