25th Anniversary

My parents celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary this past Saturday (their actual anniversary is today) and are now soaking up the sun about an hour south of Cancun in Riviera Maya, Mexico. My parents renewed their vows at Saint Hubert Church after the 4:30pm mass (at which my sister and I were late for at no fault of our own) followed by food and drink at their house until the wee hours of the morning. I got up bright and early on Labor day (okay, not so bright... it was 3:00am) to take them to O'Hare International Airport so they could enjoy a real honeymoon in Mexico. Congratulations!

During their week in Mexico, my parents stayed at the Occidental Grand Flamenco Xcaret which is adjacent to the Xcaret Eco Archaeological Theme Park. This was their first trip outside the United States since they have been married and they enjoyed it so much that they invested in a bi-annual timeshare option and plan to get passports. Next time, remember to bring a cell phone! They had to take a taxi home from O'hare because after about two hours of looking, my parents and my sister could not find each other at the airport.
