Wow. I know a lot of Aries – including myself. Consequently, the past 3 weeks have been nothing but parties and celebrations.
During the Easter weekend, Emily hosted a Creative Sushi Party with lots of “Wacky Maki”. There was also a potluck at Heather’s place on Easter Sunday with loads of yummy food. We also went curling one night and had loads of fun.
The weekend after my birthday, we had a shared birthday party for Danielle, Rhea, and I way out at Rhea’s house in Coquitlam. The hot tub was broken, which was a bit of a bummer, but we still had fun. We rocked out with Rock Band, ate lots of good food, and turned out all the lights for Earth Hour 60 – and cracked a bunch of glow sticks and tried to make flaming drinks.
Last weekend I flew back to Winnipeg for a surprise birthday party for my Mom. I won’t tell you how old she is, only that it’s a multiple of 10. It was great to see family, friends, and even elementary school teachers that I haven’t seen in years. My Dad did a great job arranging the surprise party for my Mom. She had no idea. When she walked into the room she was stunned, and then when she realized what was happening she spun around and punched Dad in the shoulder. She has been adamant for the past few months that she didn’t want a party. However, considering how much fun everyone had, I think she’ll forgive Dad eventually.
Thanks for coming home and for helping out with the surprise. Although I didn’t want a party, I have to admit it was a lot of fun and so wonderful to see everyone again. Having you and Kels home made it extra special.
