Sandy and Steve's 11 children, 26 grandchildren and several great-grandchildren all gathered together at Harrison Bay State Park to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

The Trostad Family

However, the two RV Gypsies were late for the event because their RV broke down on the way there. A $59 sensory part cost over $600 due to labor charges and delayed them for two days. But they eventually got to Harrison Bay State Park.
