Jack and Elsie are my parents. Jack's birthday is November 21 and Elsie's is December 20. They were both born in 1928, which means they were 80 at the end of 2008.
Dad typically has an annual hunting trip to Alberta in the fall. Mom typically comes out for a visit while Dad's off hunting, putting her in the province as well. I suggested that while they were both in Alberta that we have a birthday party for them. There are quite a few relatives in the province and a trip to Calgary in the fall is quite manageable for most. So that's what we did.
80th Birthday Party on October 18th!
One of the cousins took over the camera and took some pix.
Elsie and "her girls." Mary, Carol, Lee, Chris, and Elsie.
There were many other relatives in attendance - once again I can only post what I have. Apologies to folks who were there and don't appear here - or maybe you're just as happy about that! :)
