Our son Blair turned 50 this year. It is hard to grasp that. His brother Lawrence and wife Summer, his sister Tracy and husband Paul joined with Gail and I to celebrate the event in the beautiful city of Victoria.

On the left a photo of Blair with his lovely wife Angela standing on the patio outside our hotel with Victoria and Victoria Harbour showing in the background.

There is usually a struggle for the control of the kitchen when my children and my wife are in the same house.

On this occasion, and above Left, Blair was granted sole control as his brother Lawrence looks wistfully on.

Above Right, We went out for dinner the evening of Blair’s birthday and he and Angela prepare to enjoy the evening.

All lit up!
