Michael's 40th Birthday (Part 3 & 4)

Part 3... The party continues... Michael and a group of his friends went to Kelowna for a couple days to golf. They golfed 3 different courses in the Kelowna area:

Part 4... For the final birthday event, I met Michael in Kelowna for a couple of days. We spent 3 beautiful days walking around Kelowna, swimming, paddle boarding, exploring, wine tasting and a river float day with friends. It was great!

What an epic 40th birthday party the last 10 days has been!!
Happy birthday, Michael :)

 Happy 40th birthday, Michael!

Part two:
On the morning of Michael's actual birthday, we went golfing first thing in the morning:

Then Michael and I went downtown and stayed overnight at the new Marriott. It was so fun! We walked around downtown, ate at a nice restaurant, went out for brunch the next morning and then to the downtown farmers market. It was a great weekend celebrating Michael!

Michael's 40th Birthday (Part 1)

Happy 40th Birthday, Michael! 

In true Michael fashion we celebrated his birthday for 10 days ;)

We started out his celebration by going out for dinner on Friday with the boys and then to the Rec Room after. Trying to get a nice picture of these 3... impossible!

Michael won the jackpot on this game, happy birthday to him! haha!

Jakob's Grade 12 Graduation

 Jakob's graduated! 

Jakob's school did an amazing job of doing what they could with the restrictions in place. They had a drive through celebration with stations set up for the kids to walk through and pose in front of. The teachers were all there cheering them on :)

I can't believe Jakob is done school! Wasn't it just a few years ago that I was graduating from this same school?!

Each student walked across the stage and received their diploma:

And that was about it! 
Not really what a typical grad celebration should look like. I was sad for Jakob and all the kids that they didn't get to have that whole school together party. But... Jakob seemed ok with it all and that's what matters :)

Jakob with Brendan & Riley, his buddies since Kindergarden:

Jakob, we are so proud of you!

On to University!!
