August 14, 1982 we said "I do." 
It's crazy how much things have changed since that day. This was taken in 1986 -

 This was at Diana and Peter's wedding last year -

 Last night we had dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House. It was the first time we'd ever been there and it was delicious! After we ate we walked about a block to the Paramount Theater and got to see Hamilton! It was incredible to watch it live. Their voices were phenomenal; the costumes and sets were captivating ... the entire room was electric! As soon as the lights went down everyone began to clap and cheer! It was so much fun!
 Heading into the city



 Our seats were in the 12th row!

The view from our seats


 During the Intermission we went down front to see if one of the attendants could take a picture of us. At first he said no because then EVERYONE would want him to take their picture but after he saw us trying it ourselves, he had pity on us and very quickly took one. 😂

 We went back to our seats and tried again. I wanted to get a picture with the full stage behind us but we just couldn't make it happen. This was our second or third try -
While we were trying, Chuck got a Facebook notification. It was a friend who was also at the show! She had been watching us and sent us this:

 We hadn't seen her in years so we got to talk for a few minutes. It was so good to catch up. 
We had such a good night! We stayed up until 2:00am talking.
The Lord has poured His blessings on us the last 40+ years. We've been able to experience so many good things in this life. I hope it continues for another forty!
