Birthday Bash

This weekend we celebrated D's birthday. His birthday is usually around the May long weekend in Canada and heralds the start of summer in our lives. As per usual, the sunshine was plentiful, flowers were blooming and spirits were soaring. Here's a picture overload of his special day.

I wanted to do something simple, low key but fun for D. First, the guys went golfing at first while the ladies had some at home fun with the kids. 

My friend Jenn made these delicious rice paper rolls!

And brought this bouncy castle for the kids. It was a big hit!!

My parents came to visit and really helped me out tons. They cooked all the food. 

Jenga is always a hit, whatever the age. 

Cassia did a voluntary concert

And there were just a few tears

And I did a tres leches cake as it was the birthday boy's favourite

We had such a wonderful time with our family and friends and we're so thankful that another year of D's life has been filled with health and happiness! Thanks for coming out to celebrate D, everyone!!

  6. Totally off topic but I love your nail color!

  7. The appetizers were great , especially the dip and rice paper roll, TNT Chinese food, especially the pepper shrimp, veg, fried rice, cheesy potatoes, and oster chicken ( well, the cheesy potato is not Chinese , but TNT favorite). The adults sure had a good time but the kids really enjoyed themselves with the bounty castle, games, food, and dressing up.
    Have a wonderful and healthy year D.


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
