Wanda's Birthday Party

Saturday, May 25, 2013

Samuel and David's Great Aunt Wanda invited them to her 70th birthday celebration at her house. As she requested bedding plants for her garden, Sam arrived with some beautiful flowers and David gave her his big smile.

Cousin Gavin was walking well now. The boys enjoyed the toys in the box. David chewed on his favourite spatula and Sam soon had a plastic lion roaring.

Everyone enjoyed a sumptuous Chinese food dinner. Everyone except Gavin and David who had baby food.

Fortune cookies and birthday cake followed. Sam delivered pieces of cake very carefully.

Lots of smiles from David. Soon he was in his pjs - almost bedtime.

Sam and Gavin checked out the `minou`.

One last play before going home... Jenga and a wind-up squirrel were hits. A fun birthday for everyone...

A Breakfast Visit

May 17, 2013

We got together for a family breakfast visit at the “Tulip Valley” restaurant near the Chelsea boys’ house. David stayed home with Maman for a long nap. Grandpa, Barbara, Uncle Grant, Papa and Samuel had a good visit together. Boots stayed outside under the bird feeder.

While waiting for his breakfast, Sam got busy drawing a train and a lake with a boat. When his “Mickey Mouse” breakfast came, he dug right in. Then he and Grant tried out his new little fire engine.

We brought Maman a takeout omelette with home fries and had a short visit with her before leaving for Grand lac des cedres.

A beautiful sunny day was waiting for us all to enjoy.

The only thing missing was a visit with David, since he was at home sleeping during breakfast.  We remedied that with a quick visit on the way back from the cottage.  David was eating and looking at us through the window while Grant played with Sam outside.  We went in for a better chat with David.
