Celebrating Heidi

I love when we get to celebrate a friend’s birthday but when you get to try a new sport, too?  It’s way more fun!  Happy Birthday, Heidi!

Heidi is one of my dear momma friends in our local circle, I love how encouraging she always is, her quick wit and how hard she works for her kids and her business.  So, when it came time to celebrate her birthday, you know I was there!  Her sister, Rae, planned the party and we got to go curling.  I feel like I need to tell you I have never curled…I’ve watched it live and on TV but never have I tried it.  Guys, it was so  much fun!!  Actually, I’m surprised I could walk the day after but it was worth every ache.

It was a family party so there were the grown-ups and the kids all playing.  And I think the majority had never played before so it was pretty low key and I wish I could say not competitive but that would be a lie.  What we lacked in skill and form we made up for in enthusiasm and laughs.  If our stone made it to the end, we were happy.  If it sailed all the way through, we groaned and then cheered about how straight it went.

The kids enjoyed it just as much as the adults did – my girls were hesitant to go because they had never tried curling before but their friends were going to be there so they were game.  And they loved it, too!  It was fun to see them trying out the different things, like sweeping or throwing the stones. { I know I am butchering the terms here, I googled it and I still don’t know what the action is called when you send a stone down the ice… }

Rae choose an All-Canadian theme and asked us to show our pride for our great country….but all my red is summer wear so I dressed warm instead.  There were hockey jerseys, a timbit cake and buttertarts.

It’s always fun to celebrate a milestone in a friend’s life.  It’s also fun to try out a new sport.  I ALSO enjoy spending time with my friends and their families.  Throw all those factors into the mix and it makes for a great way to spend a Saturday evening!

Hope you had as much fun as we did, Heidi!!  And when can we do it again?
