Bryan's 21st Birthday
Saturday morning the kids and I took a scenic two hour drive to Whistler (designated location of the 2010 Olympics) to join my brother. We shared a very nice two bedroom condo above Nesters grocers, over looking the mountain. In the afternoon we headed to Rainbow Park by the lake. The weather was scorching hot and I managed to some how get burnt sitting in the shade. It was a wonderfully relaxing afternoon.
That evening we celebrated Bryan’s birthday at Milestones restaurant. The Bellini’s were delicious but the food was very disappointing. The chicken and cornbread were so dry it was difficult to choke down. Both corn bread muffin and over spiced foccacia bread were left uneaten. Bryan who works in a restaurant was appalled when he witnessed one of the waitress catch her sneeze, rub it into her hand then continue on working without sanitizing her hands. We certainly didn’t let that ruin our night though. The upside was Bryan getting a delicious chocolate birthday dessert lit with a sparkler.
Darcy and I stayed up late
talking about everything from "What the bleep do we know" to what teens need to get through the tough years. It was a warm and intimate night of great conversation and loads of love! Our mom would be proud!
