This weekend brought a flurry if activity. Friday night we hosted a dinner in honour of Sam's 5th Birthday. As it was a last minute get together I was only thinking I may have couple of family members attend well I was incorrect. Most attended and it was a great feeling for Sam! We made Dijon Chicken,baked potatoes, yams & green salad. With a couple of appies and a very sloppy cake. Very simple basic but good!
Saturday morning brought morning birthday snuggles and a quick pancake in the shape of a 5 or S depending on interpretation. As we were expecting to head to soccer, it was cancelled due to frost. I headed out to a meeting with my friends as we were doing our bake exchange. I excused myself after a while to head back to my birthday boy.
When I returned we got ready and to go to the Capilano Suspension Bridge to see the Christmas lights. We arrived to find out it was opening evening and we were able to enter for free, Sam got a light up Santa and free hot cocoa w/Baileys for the adults. It was truly beautiful, the lights were spectacular. We couldn't have planned a better evening as it was crisp and cool!
We ventured out to find some dinner which lead us to our next adventure as the Lonsdale Quay was hosting a festival of light. So we ate at a fantastic Greek restaurant, and walk around the festival. Sam made a Bug Lantern and a gingerbread cookie. There was live music and a flurry of other activities, a fabulous evening!
So all in all Sam had a terrific 5th Birthday. Thank you for all your well wishes!
