What’s the best safe & broad index fund(s)/ETF(s)?

My wife and I have split our money into two buckets. One is for active investing and by definition it can end up being lost (hopefully not).

The other bucket is the safe money that is enough to take us through retirement assuming the market doesn't do anything too insane. Basically we do bet on the U.S. economy being good medium & long term.

So for a good safe investment that will provide a decent return through all the ups & downs, what is considered a really solid investment? From my research I am thinking do 50% each in Vanguard VBIAX & VGSTX.

Thoughts??? thanks – dave
