Many thanks for the celebrations.

Thank you so much for all the nice birthday greetings this weekend. It was fun sharing the day with all the fabulous dads in our family.
We headed out for a picnic at the Mill of Kintail just outside of Almonte. It is a conservation area where many people go to enjoy hiking through the woods. We had breakfast under the trees along the water. It was just gorgeous. Then it was off for a hike. We brought our dog, Kane, along and he really enjoyed the walk through the trees and along the walking trail.

Thank you to the kids for the lovely cake (apple crumble) and all the gifts. The retired-guy and I are very blessed to have such a fabulous family.

                                        Three fabulous dads and their kids. 
                                                                      Kanie, too.

 It was a Happy Father's Day and a Happy Birthday.
As you can see the sun came out after 3 days of rain.
Hope you all enjoyed your Father's Day celebrations.
Now I'm off to cat-sit. :)

hugs, Deb

  9. It looks like you had a wonderful birthday celebration surrounded by your family! My birthday is tomorrow and I'm hoping for sunshine. I'm on vacation this week and want to spend my time puttering around in my gardens. We normally go out to eat on my birthday, but this year it's a challenge since I'm now gluten, dairy, and (mostly) sugar free. We live in a small town, and the most of the restaurants don't have a gluten free menu. I guess we'll wing it!
