The plan was to meet at a lovely resort restaurant for dinner. What the guests of honour did not know...was that they would be riding there in style!
And once they were safely delivered...the limo driver parked his rig next to the lake...and came in and joined us for the party. (I was glad he did!)
To get fourteen of us all available on the same night is no small feat...especially during hockey season. The Canucks had to play without us on Tuesday night...but we'll be back in the cheering section tonight!
The birthday guests-of-honour each had their own personalized menu...and there were boutineers and flowers...and balloons...and take-home favours. Oh...and sparklers on their cake...
...and a birthday choir they won't forget anytime soon. And a lot of laughter...and a good time all around! Who said turning 60 is not a good thing?
As a care group we have learned to rejoice with those who rejoice...and mourn with those who mourn. It has been one of those years where there have been many reasons to laugh...but also times of sadness. How wonderful to have friends with whom to share the ups and downs of life. This was definitely an up!
Happy Birthday...Dave, Irene and Mavis.
