On July 6th, my nephew Ashe turned 4 years old. FOUR! I can hardly believe it. We had a small birthday party for him, on the Sunday, at my mom’s cottage. Close friends and family attended. My sister and I made special cupcakes and “Paw Patrol” decorations. These are some of my favourite photos from the day:
There were sandwiches, cookies, hot dogs, and other goodies for lunch. My sister had a few fun activities for the kids, like “Pin the Badge on Marshall” and decorating dog bones. There was also a little pool to keep cool in and squirt guns! It was a great party and I’m pretty sure that Ashe had a great time!
It’s just about bedtime for me. I’ve had yesterday and today off work. Yesterday I went over to Kendra & Jay’s for their annual backyard barbeque. I baked chocolate cupcakes on the Saturday, and then Sunday at noon Kendra picked me up, then Keesje, and we went to the grocery store to pick up pop and snacks. Back at her place, we helped to chop vegetables for the veggie tray and set things up. There were 9 of us in total, not too large a group. I think everyone had a good time. After the food, we went inside to play Wii. I’m not much of a fan of video games, so I watched, took pictures, and a funny video of Amy “crashing into a pineapple”. lol
Today I did a whole lot of nothing. Well, if nothing consists of TS2, watching “Brick Lane”, putting photos from the BBQ on Facebook, making the first page of my Thailand scrapbook, and reading!
