We did get out later in the afternoon for a walk around the campground with Dave and Leslie...so at least we got out for a little fresh air.
We were also waiting all day for news from our youngest son, Chris, about the impending birth of our third grandchild. Angela is in the hospital...a grandbaby as a birthday present tomorrow would be awfully nice! By bedtime though, all we knew was that Angela was in the birthing room. So I told Chris that I would have the phone with me on the bedside table and would be waiting for his text.
Well, I woke up at 2:00 Monday morning, checked my phone...and there was a text/picture sent at 12:40 (11:40 Vancouver time)..."Happy early birthday from baby Isaac"! It's a boy! I can't believe I missed the notification beep...the phone was right beside my head...geez! Anyway he was born at 11:04...56 minutes early to share the same birth date but a fabulous birthday present just the same!
With that news, I had a tough time getting back to sleep...but I eventually did, waking up just before 6:30 and letting Grampa know the good news.
We had a quiet morning and then decided to go out for a walk on the trail that goes down to the entrance and check out the small visitors center/gift shop. Dave, Leslie and Margaret joined us but a little ways along the trail, Dave and Margaret turned back...Dave had gone for a long run this morning and he was spent. So the rest of us continued...it was a good 2.4 mile/4 km walk there and back.
Steve finished up a batch of pictures he had been editing and I got started on another blog update...and the next thing I knew it was after 4:00! Time to kick off my birthday celebration!
Dave and Leslie came over for happy hour...shots of fireball...
Just as we were about to all go over to Dave and Leslie’s for dinner, Chris and Angela video called and we had a wonderful chat with them as we watched baby Isaac...
Can hardly wait to meet him in person and hold him!
Then we headed over to Dave and Leslie's where we had a fabulous birthday feast...steak and mushrooms, baked potatoes and salad...delicious!
The cooks hard at it...while I just sit back with my glass of wine!
After finishing a batch of pictures, Steve went outside to put a few things away in preparation for leaving tomorrow...and I got started on blog updates, managing to get 3 completed.
Dave and Leslie came over for our final happy hour together. We've enjoyed travelling together for the past month but sadly, it's time to part ways. Going to miss our happy hours together chatting about the events of the day!
After dinner we went over to their place for dessert...left over birthday cake and tea!
