In July, we celebrated two special events - Zach turned 1 and Uncle Billy turned 70 (technically, his birthday wan't till later in the year, but since he and Alice aren't in Toronto at that time, the celebration was held early). Jackie and Jeannette hosted a b-day lunch at the Mandarin and Uncle KC, Auntie Elsa, Julian, Emily and Allie even showed up. Although I hate birthdays in general, having everyone together was really something SPECIAL!!
