Nine days to be exact. Spending birthdays together with family can be quite the choreography. We couldn't all be together to celebrate Aimee's exact birthdate but we were able to gather 9 days ahead. Even Julia came along to the event. Unfortunately Josh had to work so didn't hang out with us for the day.
Event 1 of the day was opening of the gift (from Josh)...
This was definitely the most fancy inside of any wallet I have ever seen.
Event 2 was the rousing of the guests....
We signed the cast before we left for:
Event 3: lunch at Milestone's. What was memorable was the assurance that there was no cilantro in the soup. Man, whoever decided that was food rather than a weed.
Event 4: Granville Island - one very groovy place to hang out. There we found the birthday cake. Cakes. Everyone gets to choose their own!!
Event 5: Stanley Park and English Bay: We dried our ocean-dipped and sandy-coated feet sitting on a log and enjoying the sunshine.
Event 6: Dinner at Him's - my favourite sushi hangout on Denman Avenue.
Event 7: Blowing out the candles and more presents for the birthday girl!!
