My first present on the actual day - from our Sudbury friends, Lynn and Paul.
(dinosaur puppet not shown)
My Great Auntie Jean came all the way from England (via Vancouver!) to read me a birthday story.
Thanks for my new t-shirt Gran
(it says something about Grandma and Grandpa being the best...)
Olivier looks like he's going to chair a meeting, but he's really just getting into his lunch
(Don't worry, we saved you a piece Daddy)
(Lucy's "first" birthday cake - she was mighty proud)
Alice and Olivier chowing down on cake
(But their mean mommies didn't give them any icing!)
Simonne sat in one spot until all of her icing was gone.
(And then her mum took care of the cake)
Woof, woof. Thanks for the puppy Simonne, my parents won't buy me a real one.
Daddy, the monkey you chose for me was a big hit!
Nicolas waiting patiently for the school bus.
(hey, it's yellow, it's got wheels, and it makes noise - what's not to love?)
Gratuitous crowd shot.
(and pic of Grandad's bum!)
Daddy, we missed you so very much at the party. We will tell you all about it when you come home next week. And you were right, Mummy has no idea where to put all of the new toys!
(p.s. everyone, check out Simonne's blog for more great photos)
