We're going to visit the Little Brothers in Grand Cayman for a couple of days in March! Mum and Dad are going down for the week of March Break and we're joining them for the last three days. I'm going to snorkel with the Stingrays! I'm going to visit the Turtle Farm! I'm going to see sun and warm weather and beach and outdoor pool! I'm going to get a novelty glass from the Hard Rock Cafe (a tradition of mine that I just realised I haven't shared here before) or a Hard Rock Bear. I wonder if they have a Hard Rock Turtle or Stingray... hmmm. Oh yeah, and I'm going to see the Little Brothers who will be annoyingly tanned and svelte from all their outdoor scuba diving work.
In honour of my birthday trip I thought we'd revisit some birthday trips of days gone by.... Do you have any favourite birthday memories?
There were swimming birthday parties obviously and birthday parties with lots of games but I decided for my 10th birthday I wanted a fancy dinner out at the Skylon Tower revolving restaurant in Niagara Falls. From a very young age I was obsessed with fancy restaurants... poor Husband. I wore frills for the occasion and Daddy got me a corsage.

|Now that is a group having fun. Also the early 90s had some BRIGHT coloured ski jackets.|
|Who wouldn't want a piglet birthday?|
By the next birthday I was living in England and went to London to see We Will Rock You and eat yummy Tapas with some of the girls (4 Canadians, an American and a German... had yet to meet many Brits I guess!).
Having your birthday in February in Canada means outdoor activies are fairly limited (hence sleigh rides) but in the UK it can be somewhat warmer so one year Husband (who was only Fiance at the time) arranged for a boat ride out to see the seals. I'd been wanting to do that for ages.
|Some seal friends. Interesting fact... seal colonies smell horrible!|
