Happy Birthday, Kim!

Our good friend, Kim, celebrated her birthday on the weekend, with a lovely surprise party planned for her by her children! The food and wine were delicious, the chocolate raspberry cake was to die for, the company was lively and it was a great party for an amazing woman. May you enjoy life each day, especially as you become a grandmother in the next couple of weeks!

Another special event for us this weekend was the opportunity to meet Kelsey's (our son's girlfriend) family and have a barbecue at their home. We knew they would be a special family to have such a beautiful and lively daughter - and we were 100% right! Gracious hosts, their family shared humour and offered friendship to us. Thank you so very much - we were delighted to spend the evening with all of you! And - you should see the view from their house!!! At the top of a hill, the house faces west and looks into a beautiful valley with rolling hills, lots of trees and the Rocky Mountains in the distance. It was a stunning view - and the sunset was so colorful. They definitely have a glimpse of heaven out there! Alas, I didn't have the camera out - didn't want to be too crazy on the first visit! Next time!!


  1. Sounds like you had a great weekend before the rush of school starting. Are you ready for the munchkins? I'll call this week when we get back to NS to get more details. Love & hugs.

  2. What a great photo of Paul and Kim! I'm so glad you were able to celebrate with her and enjoy all that delicious food!
    It sounds like Kelsey's parents have a gorgeous home and view - a piece of heaven is right! ;)

  3. Happy birthday to Kim! Kelsey sounds like she lives in a beautiful home - how thoughtful of you to remember to ditch the crazed scrapbooker facade for your son's sake... :D
