On Saturday 8 September 2012 JoAnne and I, our daughter Kristy and her husband Carlos renewed our marriage vows. Family and friends from Colorado, Missouri and as away far as South North Carolina. We had a wonderful ceremony written by my JoAnne, Kristy and Mike Sause a very good family friend who acted as our officiant.
Mike dressed in some of his old SCA robes as a Monk from about the 16th century to provide a very nice oration. The rest of us… were in a “beach theme”, white shirts, khaki pants, sandals. The “cake” was pretty awesome… it was a stack of cup cakes, each frosted and sprinkled with sand (graham crackers) and each topped with either a chocolate (white and dark) star fish or shell. The kiddies loved it. The aisle was lined with seashells and we had cookies that looked like little flip-flops. The table was decorated with a bunch of statues made and obtained on our several trips to Jamaica.
On Sunday morning we headed for Texas. Stopping on Sunday night at “Boerne” (pronounced “Bernie” by the locals). Monday morning it was San Antonio, the Alamo and the River Walk. We made it to the Condo about 1830 Monday evening. We’ve already been to the beach and it’s Tuesday. The vacation is going really, really quick. Bah. This morning the Beach…. on the Gulf side of the Island. Tomorrow we go aboard the “Black Dragon” for an evening pirate attack along the coast… More to follow….
