Love is in the .......paradise !

A big reason why my parents wanted to take us to Mexico was to join them in celebrating 35 years of being in a wonderful, successful relationship and marriage. The trip gave them the opportunity to renew there vows in front of their children. It was beautiful seeing my parents express their genuine and deep love for each other in front of us. To say the least, it was a very tearful and happy time. I loved seeing that they are still madly in love, and as giddy as newly weds. Watching my dad look into my mother’s eyes and seeing how stunning my mom looked was something that I will never forget. I am so grateful to have such loving parents that are wonderful examples of how to treat one another.

They got new rings to exchange with each other

I got to walk my little man down the isle, because he was the ring-bearer

...and he was by far the cutest ring bearer I had ever seen.

Giving his Papa and Nana their rings
My mom was gorgeous!

There's my dad looking all handsome.

The girls

The men....and Daxton

My parents gave us sea shells to make wishes on and toss into the ocean! Guess what mine was?!!!

They did the same. It was really cute.

Jake and Natalie

Jack and Angie

He's a lady killer!
We had a wedding dinner after the ceremony.

Ahhhh.... they even got to feed their wedding cake to each other. I was totally hoping that they would shove it in each others faces....... but they are too nice to each other to do that (unlike McKay).

The mariachi band played for them. It was so fun!

A big thanks to my mom and dad for taking us to this beautiful place to see them renew their vows. What a wonderful example they both are to us.


Jack and Angie started their new life together in Mexico it was fun to see them get married. We sure missed there kiddos though!
Their lunch afterwords was yummy
Handsome fella!

Some sisterly goofin around. Its what we do best!
We think we are pretty awesome too.

We let Daxton "try" the cake. On his face :)

He thought he was pretty funny
Just making sure everyone is looking at cute he is.
I love how happy my son is.

You guys had a lot of fun apparently! It makes me really happy knowing that there are still people who believe in love and that it lasts forever. My parents are doing the same this year. The close family is going to Argentina and we are having the celebration there. We already have furnished apartments in buenos aires for all the guests.
It´s gonna be in a different paradise but as nice as the one in your pictures!
