Well, the main reason we went to Costa Rica was to take part in my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration. It was held on July 5th, which was exactly 50 years later. I have to mention that my Dad bought my Mum an engagement ring as her present, she never got one 50 years ago !
Traditionally in Costa Rica, the night before the wedding, the groom arrives at the bride's house and brings a Serenade (Mariachis, trios, etc). So this time my brother, sisters and myself organised a Serenade for our parents. We got a "Trio" of guitar players/singers, they played my Parents favourite songs. It was a surprise for them.

They renewed their vows:

Well, we left Costa Rica last Friday, arrived in Ireland Saturday evening...it's such a long haul !! Jet lag is killing us !! but I can't wait to go back to my cards !! I bought a few bits and pieces, mainly unusual stuff and loads of ribbons and paper bags! I didn't go wild craft shopping cos I had bought new stamps & other bits before I left, that I can't wait to put to a good use !!
