Great Grandma Mac's 90th Birthday celebration

The Party
The most senior and the most junior McNamaras in the clan.
Deaglan helped to celebrate Great Grandma Mac's (Iris Bride McNamara) 90th birthday today. She was born June 26, 1918. In attendance were her sister Pal, all of her children - Pat, Geri, Bill (Deaglan's grandpa), Sharon, Bob, Marie and Michael. Deaglan's Grandma (Fran) and most of his great Aunts and Uncles, his Aunt Katie and Uncle Justin and some of his second cousins were also in attendance. There was lots of food, cake and balloons.
On a sidetable in the room were certificates congratulating Grandma Mac on her 90th year from Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Premier Dalton McGinty, Mayor Anne-Marie DeCico-Best and Canada's Lieutenant Governor (they had all signed the certificates - seriously cool). What an achievement to reach such a milestone, still have a wonderful sense of humour and mean so much to so many people! Happy Birthday Grandma!

After the party
A special goodnight to Aunt Tanis who definitely inherited Grandma Mac's sense of humour!

Another special goodnight to Aunt Chrissy whose quiet thoughtfulness is always appreciated.
It wasn't difficult getting this guy ready and in bed after a neat day of visiting and partying.

Half-a birthday to you

Deaglan is six months today. What a wonderful six months it's been. Words can't describe how much we all love him. Looking into his eyes, it's easy to believe that anything is possible!

Shirt on, shirt off - crazy June weather!

Needed a hat and shirt this morning while sitting outside with Daddy - it was sunny and beautiful
A few hours later this is what the sky looked like

No shirt, no shoes, no hat - Mom would still give service!

Dressing for the weather

This week's heat has kept us shaded and indoors alot. Sometimes shirtless was the only way to go.

A visit with the greats

Great grandma Mac and great aunt Pat came for lunch - they hadn't seen Deaglan since he was a few days old

Aunt Tara and the kids

Aliya was very interested in holding Deaglan - she marveled at everything he did
Halima always wants to hold her baby cousin - definitely a future babysitter!

Deaglan thought Aunt Tara was hilarious and wouldn't stop laughing - usually mom and dad have to put on a real comedy act to get this kind of reaction
