A renewal of vows

Posted at about 5:30 PM local time, on July 9

Mom and Dad had their vow-renewal ceremony this afternoon before dinner. We all got dressed up and then met outside the chapel at 5:30 PM. Jen and Jason had just finished up their couple’s massage and they had to rush to get dressed, but they were up to the chapel on time, and in fact, we were able to start a few minutes early.

The ceremony was brief, but private, with the ship’s captain presiding over it. I video-recorded the whole thing on my camera and the entire ceremony lasted 3-1/2 minutes but it was really very nice. After, we went back to my parents suite to have some champagne.
