Happy Birthday to Me!

Last Saturday was my birthday. I was in Toronto visiting my family at the time, and I thought it would be fun to compare a picture of my birthday dinner on the weekend with a photo of a birthday party long, long ago. This is the photo from many years ago (it is frightening to think how many years ago it was!) for my 5th birthday party. I am second from the right with a big smile on my face and a Micky Mouse party hat on my head. The little girl peeking over the chair is my sister Marilyn. It was a classic party, where all the little girls wore dresses and we ate cake and ice cream and drank pop.

This is my birthday dinner on the weekend at a restaurant in Toronto, with my daughter Sarah on the left and my son Brian on the right (the picture isn't the greatest because the restaurant was dark.) We had wine and lobster and salad, and when the waitress overheard that it was my birthday, she surprised us by bringing me a fantastic piece of cake with a lit sparkler. It was a lovely party and I was so happy to be with my two wonderful children for the evening. Both birthdays featured food and drink and cake and good company, but with a difference (now I have lobster and wine instead of ice cream and pop!). Happy birthday to me!
