A Weekend Filled with Celebration

I was able to get Friday off of work so I could go to my Dad's house and celebrate his 56th birthday with him. It was a fabulous meal (as always) of BBQ chicken, pork chops, salad, roasted potatoes and fresh buns. We also had the traditional DQ ice cream cake which Sharron added even more Reese Peanut Butter Cups to. Like it wasn't fattening enough already. It was delicious and we all stuffed ourselves. After supper we played Balderdash (which we call Bangladesh after Sharron slipped up and called it that years ago) and it was really hilarious. Some highlights included Foumart (An unsuccessful chain of grocery stores run by Mr. T) and Fingers (A movie about a gang of fingerless pirates who are unable to cut open their lemons and ultimately die of scurvy). Jules won for the first time too so that was nice for him. In case you're not familiar with the rules of Balderdash, they give you a word, movie title, name, etc and you have to make up a fake definition and then hope people choose yours as the correct definition. If you look closely at the picture you will see that we are all idiots and accidentally played from finish to start. Oops!

The next morning we had a fabulous breakfast and spent some more time visiting before heading off to see my Mom. Her birthday is on the 15th and so we wanted to see her and enjoy her fantastic cooking. She made ham, scalloped potatoes, fresh garden beets and carrots with rhubarb pie and ice cream for dessert. Basically that was the end of eating for the day. Haha!

We returned back to Edmonton and Matt and I spent the rest of the weekend together. Why? Well, it was our anniversary. September is busy! I will blog a bit more about our anniversary soon. I can't believe it's been ten years! Oh and if you want to see all the pictures from Dad's birthday you can go over here.
