it was a party!






It started on Wednesday, the day of my birth, and ended with a party with family and friends on Friday evening.  

Our daughter, son-in-law and 3 grandsons Face Timed me from 2 times zones away as they were having breakfast Wednesday morning.  They sang 'Happy Birthday' to me and the grandchildren were so excited.  It was such a special time and makes me very grateful for technology today.

My friend, Lois, and I picked raspberries on Wednesday morning and enjoyed cake and ice cream for lunch....just dessert, no actual 'lunch'.  :-)   I think at our age that it's ok to do that once in a while, don't you?

It was good picking and we got 7 boxes.


  That evening Murray and I went out for a delicious dinner at the beautiful MoCo Kitchen in Mactaquac Provincial Park's lodge. (I forgot to take a photo of it)

The big birthday party was here on Saturday at suppertime and we had a wonderful time with family and friends celebrating, eating, laughing and catching up with each other.  I got beautiful cards and gifts, hugs and good wishes.  

Me blowing out the 2 candles on the cake.  I couldn't even put 2 out at once so good thing there weren't 65!  LOL

Thank You for all your sweet birthday wishes in my last post.  I appreciate each and every one of you.  



Thank you for visiting.  Have a great day and week!  

Blessings,
Pam

  2. Happy belated birthday, Pam! Sounds like you did it up right! So wonderful to have friends and family together for a celebration. One of those sweet joys of life. Now July is nearly gone and August brings fall... almost. I love July. I hate to see it go.

  9. Hi Pam - Happy, Happy Birthday! So sweet that the grands sang you a birthday song and that you got to spend the day (and week) with friends and family. You are absolutely glowing! I missed your last post, but I scrolled down - what a little cutie pie you were (and still are :) I remember your last year's birthday spent with your precious brother. Love all the childhood pics and sweet birthday memories. I also love your beautiful sense of gratitude. I am turning the big 60 this year and you are such lovely inspiration. Hugs xo Karen

  11. What a fun celebration. Like Judith said, a birthday is best when stretched out. Looks like you were well celebrated with lots of love. I think the idea of ice cream and raspberries for lunch is a wonderful idea!
