Dad's 80th Birthday Celebration

Last weekend we celebrated my dad's 80th birthday. He was planning his annual sail past with his sailing group but little did he know that his good friend Nancy was planning a surprise party for him! Hubby and Emily and I took the ferry over to Bowen Island in the afternoon on Saturday to celebrate with dad and his sailing club and then had a family dinner for him here at home on Sunday. It was a wonderful time and dad was totally surprised to see us show up. He's so lucky to have such wonderful friends and I'm so glad that he belongs to a group of such wonderful people. It reminds me of my scrapbooking group. When people share the same passion, wonderful friendships are made!

I made this canvas for dad. He loves it.

Here's a few pictures from dad's party.
