I celebrated another birthday this past weekend. On Sunday Andy and the girls had a birthday/mother's day brunch for me and my family. It was really nice to get together and share this special occasion. Avery thinks that at every birthday there should be games. So the party planner laid out a whole game itinerary with a race schedule and assigned partners. There was going to be the egg & spoon race, three legged race, wheel barrel race and the egg toss. Well man oh man, did we laugh. The funniest one was the wheel barrel race. The men were the wheel barrels - well we laughed and laughed and laughed so more. It was so much fun and good for the soul. I don't think that I have laughed like that in a long time. I so much appreciated Avery's enthusiasm and her ability to make us feel like kids again. It feels good to be a kid and let the kids be in control sometimes. Thanks Avery.

This past week in the newspaper it was full of Prince Andrew. The kids wanted to meet the Queen's son. I thought that there was no way that I was going to line up see him but then on Friday we found out that he was coming to Westmount for dinner. Andy took the girls over to take a glimpse of the Prince. He was a little late getting there and the royal sighting lasted for 42 seconds. But nevertheless, they saw Prince Andrew.
