Well, "birthday month" is almost over. Here is the final birthday post! Grace and I hosted a family BBQ on Sunday. Lots of food, lots of fun and of course... lots of Barney!!!
Picking the last of the raspberries from the back yard. She LOVES raspberries!!!
What's a party without bubbles??!
Guess who showed up to the party??
Grace decided to help Barney hand out the popcorn this time
She got a little braver by day two!!! I think I actually see a smile on her face!
Little K-man was eager to give Barney a hug, so cute!
And then all the cousins lined up to say hi to Barney and give him a hug. They acted like they weren't interested but I'm thinking different!!!
Sunday was my brother Bill's actual birthday so Grace presented him with a cupcake and candle while we sang
The two young ones shared a tender moment on the deck each eating their own ice cream cone. They are so lucky to have each other since all the other cousins are so much older.
Our neighbours Dan and Erna joined us for cake and coffee
And then we had an unexpected guest show up! My nephew M. drove from Toronto for the party. He's living several hours away now but was in Toronto all week doing a show at the Ex. How wonderful it was to see him!!!!
Grace received a lacrosse stick from her aunt Carolyn and family. Now we just need to get one of her cousins that actually play the game to teach Grace.
Grace loved all of her gifts, including the new scooter, but her favourite I think was when she opened up Baby Bop. Baby Bop is a character from Barney and it is definitely her favourite. We could hardly get her to part with Baby Bop to open the rest of the gifts!
