Random on Thursday... Happy Birthday Grampa!
So my Grampa turned 95 last weekend. There he is. The blue ribbon says birthday boy on it. The cake had a serious amount of flame action by the time all the candles were lit. My aunt hosted the party at Grampa's favourite place. Yep. Tim Hortons. For all you non-Canadians that is a donut and coffee that is dearly loved by Canadians. Lots of us were able to make it. Most of his grandchildren and several of his great grandchildren. Mum couldn't be there but we took lots of pictures for her. The staff at Timmy's were pretty nice. They all gathered around our table in the very crowded coffee shop, made a loud, "excuse me everyone, we have a 95th birthday here!" Then everyone in the whole place sang Happy Birthday. It was pretty nice. Grampa got a little teary, I have to say. Nice!
We thought my aunt was pretty clever. Host the party at the Tim Hortons, then you don't have to worry about tidying up the house or cleaning up afterwards. Doesn't matter if the birthday is for a 5 year old or a 95 year old, it works. Grampa didn't need to have a ball room to play in though. Just saying.
Happy Birthday, Grampa!
