The Holy Matrimony

Miami FL

We were lazy most of the day.  It was spent just resting and relaxing from our busy lives.  Then came the night i had been looking forward to.


All month long has been church services on Sex Ploration.  Well the big day has arrived for 24 couples.  YES, 24 couples are getting married at the same time in the same church!  You had to get special tickets to attend and YES, i got my ticket! 


Top picture (L-R) Dixie, Peggy, Dee, Bev, me, Margie and Jim  Bottom Picture Evia and Paul


Jim and Paul were the only 2 men who attended.  The rest of the guys went out to dinner together while we ladies attended the big event.


While waiting for the wedding to start this little gal stole our hearts.  She wanted to be passed around the RVer’s


That was until she got to me.  She laid her little head against mine and just stayed there.  I just enjoyed holding her as long as she wanted me to.  I love babies and NO, it doesn’t make me want another one!!


The wedding started a bit late as one of the guys tux was an 1 1/2 late!  Poor couple.  It was worth the wait and soon here came the 24 grooms anxiously waiting for their beautiful brides to come down the isle.  We had to watch them on the big screen come down the aisle as the church is so huge and it was packed.


It was interesting and i’m sure i will never be at another wedding like this again.  Each groom and bride said their names and repeated the same wedding vows, and then it was time for them all to kiss their brides.  It was nice to see but i have to be honest.  I think i would of preferred my own wedding as it really wasn’t on such a personal level as there were so many other bride and groom.


soon it was party time and time to celebrate.


They had finger foods and lemon aide for the guest while the happy couples got their pictures taken.  Making a toast to the happy couples.


The celebration started before the couples arrived and yes even the ladies i was with got in on the celebration and had some young men join them.  NO, i did not get on the dance floor, i took pictures for black mail at a later time :))


This little guy wanted in on the action and he soon joined everyone on the dance floor.  He was so adorable. 


Finally the guest of honors all arrived and it was time for us to end our night.  It was neat to see a huge wedding.  I came home and put on my comfy clothes and soon called it a night to remember.

Sawgrass Recreational Park

Miami, FL

We got up this morning and headed to get some breakfast.  We ended up at Dunkin Donuts.  Yep i was a bad girl and had a glazed donut and it was so good.  YES, i know how many calories was in it.  I know i will pay for it tomorrow.


After eating breakfast we headed over to Sawgrass Recreation Park.  Were taking an Airboat ride through the Everglades.


We arrived got our tickets and waited until they called us for our boat.


We got this boat with the back rest.  It had wonderful seats.  One advantage to having a disability. 


We loaded our boat and was on our way.  Through the wetlands we headed.


We stopped along our way and this fellow started heading toward us for a hand out.


Paul kept spinning the boat around so we could get pictures and see the big guy.


I bet this guy could take a hand right off


We really enjoyed our boat ride and would have liked it to have been a bit longer.


I was surprised it was a pretty smooth ride. 


This is our Captain Paul, he did a great job of driving us and making sure that we took it easy.  One time we had to turn sideways and the boat jumped a bit but he got it under control right away to protect my back. 


Several fellows were hiding in the water.


We met several other boats .. you see how their seats sat down inside and i think i would of had some trouble getting in and out.  As well i don not think the ride would of been near as comfortable for me.

After our boat ride we toured the exhibits.



This beauty was looking for a hand out as well.

This little cutie was a big excitement and yes i just had to cuddle with it. 


Please honey can i take it home just for a little while??  YES your right, it would love my babies as a snack .. guess we’ll leave it here. 


Look at this … well feed i’d say


This peacock let Ray pet him, but when me and a little boy tried to touch it, it bite us and made the little boy cry

I had to really work to get a picture of this lil guy.  He was hiding under a board.  Yes, i had to stand on my head .. hehe


A late lunch early dinner what ever you call it was On The Border Mexican.  I had a wonderful taco soup, enchilada chicken, refried beans and Mexican rice. 


Another wonderful day in warm Miami, Florida.
