Birthday Fun

This past Easter weekend, Lloyd and I travelled to Lethbridge to visit our son Mike and his family, and Lloyds sisters.  We had a great weekend with the bonus of connecting with friends I hadn't seen for many, many years.

But the highlight of the weekend was on Saturday when we celebrated all the birthdays in Mike's family at a birthday party at our place.  Their birthdays all happen in a cluster - March 20, March 24, March 28, April 9 and June 2.  Since they live five hours away from us and we can't see each of them on their special day, we decided to take care of all of them at once.

Everyone blew out the candles
Hannah, Mike, Avril, Alex, Kenny

Alex loved the blue icing.  He just turned 3
One-year old Hannah had to be stripped down before eating her cupcake.

Then they had to do the gifts.

Kenny will be five in June

Avril and Hannah

Hannah enjoyed opening her gift all by herself

Kenny had more fun with the party blower than the gifts.

Sweet Alex - he sleeps with that Mario hat on.
And that takes care of their birthdays for another year.

What a neat idea. I'm going to be able to do that if my son and DIL keep having children in February. As on now, it's February 1st and 6th.
