For our parents' 50th wedding anniversary, April 30, 2016 my brother Christopher, his wife Jodi, and I, joined Mom and Dad for a weekend trip to DC. It had been many years since either of them had visited, so we booked an apartment online and spent our days exploring the city's monuments and museums.
During breakfast on our first day, the actual day of their anniversary, I asked them about their wedding day. This is what they shared with us.*
