We had a family gathering. All eleven of us stood around the kitchen island with cones and scoop and tubs of ice cream and frozen yogurt and dipped to our hearts' content, with sprinkles on top. Christine asked the grandchildren whether they knew why we do this and Ryan popped up with, "Because it's a tradition." That it is. We are remembering Grandpa Edward's Birthday. Sadly, he saw only one of his grandchildren, Kailyn when she was a baby. But neither he and mom or our children with their children were able to travel from either BC or ON during those last years. But the children all sang heartily a Happy Birthday tribute and here it is.
