Birthday Ribs

Today is my birthday. Birthdays are a funny thing when you have very young children. They don't have a clue that it's a special day. This morning, Teagan decided that she couldn't wait to say happy birthday to me so she woke at 5am! Fortunately (for me!), we are at the cottage and I'm surrounded by family who do know that it's my birthday so I've had plenty of time for myself today! Thanks to Jenn (and my parents and uncle), I got to go back to bed for 2 hours and also enjoyed some kid-free time at the spa for a pedicure!

My Dad made some fabulous BBQ'd ribs that are quite labour-intensive because they require hours of preparation and flipping on the BBQ. The result was a dinner filled with delicious food, fine wine and fabulous company. He saved some of the ribs for the girls who ate their dinner a few hours before us. The pictures were too good to not share!

The little carnivores gnaw on some bones.

Last weekend, my brother nicknamed Teagan, "Teagan the Vegan", because of her love of tofu. Rob, your nickname definitely didn't apply tonight!!



  1. Happy Birthday! Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself.

  2. Full body bibs were definitely the way to go. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I will treat you to some more b-day wine when you are back in town :)
