Wedding Vow Renewal

Our 20th Wedding Anniversary was last night (hence the lack of an American Idol report - so if you were hoping to see an Idol Finals post here this morning, blame my bride). We renewed our vows at the chapel we were married in and had a party in one of the church hall's next to it.

It was touch and go whether or not the event would actually happen. Just like the actual event 20 years ago, we nearly killed each other planning it.

Not sure exactly what this renewal of vows means. I guess it's like the military where you re-up when your enlistment is up. So I guess I'm in for another 20 years - maybe we will consummate the marriage this time ;)

Thanks for a great time sweetie - I LOVE YOU!!!

Here are a few pics:

Someone cooked way too much food

No shock as to who was first in line for food

The cake was smaller this time around

Very sweet! I'm thinking that 20 years ago you probably had no idea that your life would include all those offspring. How noble of you to sign on to 20 more years ;)
