Coincidence?

I'm scanning old photos tonight.  I meet my mom's parents' families on Monday.

My grandfather--J. Howard Stegner, my grandmother--Esther Dorothea (Holz) Stegner, and my mom--Ruth Eileen (Stegner) Hamm.
As I was scanning, I found that the last time my mom's mom's (the Holz) side and my mom's dad's (the Stegner) side were together was 50 years ago this month (June 4, 1961) to celebrate my grandfather and his 3rd wife's 25th wedding anniversary.  I just thought that was interesting that the 2nd wife's family (the Holz's) joined together to celebrate this event.  It says a lot about my grandfather that after her death he stayed in touch with her family.

Anyway, I got to counting back and am just stunned that it was almost exactly 50 years ago.  How cool is that!  Not sure why I felt so compelled to meet my mom's family, but I can't wait.
