Yesterday we got in the car (well, 2 cars because we didn't fit in one car) and drove to Dunnville. We stopped in at a Tim Horton's on the way to get coffee and I got a 20 pack of timbits to share with Laura. It took about 2 hours to get there, including the stop, and we arrived a little after 12:30.

After all the introductions were done, and there were A LOT, we opened presents (for Cathrine, Ron, Joshua and Laura's Gran). Then all the kids (and by that I mean anyone under 28) went out back to play on the trampoline and some of the kids played box hockey. There were were 5 kids under 18 and 4 of us under 28 and we all acted like we were 10. It was AWESOME! I took way too many pictures that I am going to spend forever and a day trying to upload to facebook later.... none of the pictures with the baby will be anywhere online because his dad doesn't want them online, so I'll be sending a tone of e-mails so that family members can have copies.

Then we ate!

and ate.....and ate.....yeah.

We had (from left to right on the buffet table!) Lasagna, chicken curry with vegetable rice, Turkey, ham with pineapple slices, stuffing, bread, corn and peas in a bowl, mashed potatoes and gravy! that was just the main course. we had two tables set, one was for the people under 18. lol I haven't been to a family gathering that required more than one table in quite some time so it was really nice to be at the adult table for once...even if I don't really feel like an adult half the time.

Each plate had a sticker on the bottom and each sticker corresponded with a prize. Kian won sidewalk chalk... Laura and I each one a candy puzzle (Laura ate hers yesterday, I forgot mine at Grans). Gran won the grand prize which was a giant purple clapper! lol

After dinner, but before dessert, all of us kids (under 28) went out front to play with bubbles! Kian had gone out before us to play with his chalk on the we ambushed him outside! heeheehee!
We had long plastic tubes full of soapy water and nice big wands to produce large bubbles. We ran around the front lawn and ran in circles to make as many bubbles as we could. I took turns with Laura taking pictures of all the antics, and making bubbles myself. Eventually everything degenerated into a slime war. (bubble soap is surprisingly slimy!) We were all covered in soap.

Then it was time for dessert. There was another table set completely covered in sweets. There was pecan pie, lemon meringue pie, vanilla ice cream, giant strawberries covered in white and milk chocolate (bu they were still frozen so I just ate the chocolate off of it), pastries, tablet (which is like fudge but not)(it's Scottish), and last but certainly not least, BIRTHDAY CAKE!!! Really good birthday cake that turned Laura's lips blue because she had too much icing (the blue balloon).

After dessert we all ended up back on the trampoline. It's amazing nobody threw up! We ended up sitting outside talking and jumping until it was time to go home. I got a tone of hugs from everybody! It took us 90 minutes to drive home. Laura's sisters and the baby were in the other car with Ron driving...they were about 15 minutes behind us when we left and they somehow made it back before us. Laura's parents were not impressed. was shocked to see them there..with smiles on their faces no less!

Laura and I went for another walk around the lake and chatted and then watched youtube videos until about 10 at which point I went to bed. It was a totally awesome, amazingly great day!!!
