    What a lovely night – and recap post. I love that you and your brother performed, especially as it’s something I don’t think I could ever do (even if I was musically talented, which I’m not!), and I bet the rest of the restaurant loved it too. And I also love the look of your grandpa’s dessert. A lot.

    There are some Lovely moist looking dishes there.

    Aww what a wonderful night! Grandparents are so important. I don’t have any left and I miss them!

    It was a lovely night — starting with the music. You are a great and wonderful pair.

    What a terrific way to celebrate two obviously awesome oldies!

    Truffle bread – want!

    How wonderful that they are not only alive and well but still together! What a wonderful example to you. I wish you had recorded your singing and uploaded it – I would have loved to have heard your performance xx

    It was wonderful night and this post reminds us all over again of what a beautiful family we have and how wonderful it is that everyone wanted to share it with us – some of them even coming from far away Tasmania. The memory of the serenade is something we’ll always treasure (you sneaky pair, you).

    Oh wow. I wish I could say of myself I’ve been married for such a long time. But now I’m almost 30 and single (although not unhappy with that). So probably not this life, except I’d get *very* old (but I’m not sure if I want to get that old anyway).

    I love that you played music for your grandparents! And E.TeacherLord plays the guitar. Nice! (I’ve started to notice things like that, now that I’m playing as well. 😀 )

    Why is there no video so we can hear your performance?

    Looks like you and your family had a great time 🙂

    How gorgeous of you and your brother to perform in the middle of a restaurant!

    Those desserts all look like they’re straight from MasterChef, and all give me dessert envy.

    That is the bravest and sweetest gift to give such special people – well done my friend 😀
    As for the food, I am not going to talk about that considering I just really wish it would come out of the screen 😉

    What a sweet present – and lots of lovely sweet desserts – I think I loved the look of the chocolate fondant best (I am predictable when it comes to dessert and always veer towards chocolate). Sounds like a wonderful celebration of a wonderful marriage

    Your brother looks so devious in the first photo, hah.

    What a bunch of terrific-looking desserts. Poached cherries and almond bread sounds completely fabulous!

    Oh, cribbage. So enjoyable. Alas, my cribbage-ing with my father has now come to an end for now!

    What a cool gift for your grandparents… and how cool that they are together after all this time! If my husband and I make it to 60 years together (because we’re still alive, not because I might kill him for talking so much during MasterChef) I’ll be 84 and he’ll be 89. It could happen!

    I love that you’re an oysters natural girl! Me too. Anything else is just gilding the lily!

    What a lovely post about your grandparents :). Sounds like it was a wonderful occasion and I would love to hear you sing one day ;). LOVE those desserts *drool*

    Oh man this is quite possibly the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen. What a great milestone for your grandparents, congratulations to the whole family! And it’s so special of you guys to sing for them like that in front of everyone. Can you pls pls pls put up a recording of your singing that we’ve been reading about all this time! I’m sure it sounds nothing short of angelic hehe
