This month my maternal grandmother celebrated her 80th birthday! We were glad that we could make the trek to join in the celebrations! Almost the whole family was able to attend, with family from Ontario, Georgia, and the Northwest Territories in attendance. We had a birthday lunch at The Mandarin, Granny's favourite restaurant. It's the most incredibly decorated buffet and the food selection is fabulous! Afterwards, more friends and family met at Granny's house for cake and much laughter and catching up. I don't have many pictures on my camera of the actual events, but here is a quick sampling!
