Celebrating 60 Years

My Dad’s birthday was a few weeks ago, and this year he turned the big 6-0.

We were initially thinking of throwing Dad a big bash for his 60th birthday, but we were quickly told that he didn’t want anything large. So instead, we planned a simple, surprise dinner with our immediate family. We drove down from Ottawa and met my brother and his family and then drove to our Parents’ house. We ordered Chinese takeout and afterwards ate some delicious cake. And of course, Jackson helped Grampa blow out his candles. We then had to relight them multiples time so he could blow them out again and again.Montreal Canadiens Birthday Cake Ottawa Child Photography - Toddler Montreal Canadiens Birthday Cake Ottawa Child Photography - Toddler Montreal Canadiens Birthday Cake Ottawa Child Photography - Toddler

I spent most of the afternoon making and decorating the cake to have the Habs symbol on it as it is Dad’s favourite team. In fact, normally we take a photo of Dad (or Grampa) and Jackson in their matching Habs Jerseys, but Jackson has outgrown all of the ones he has, I guess we will need to invest in some larger ones for him.
Most of the evening we sat around and chatted, while Jackson ran around chasing the dog and just generally acting like a two year old. It was a fantastic family dinner!!
