My parents had one of those fairy tale romances. They knew each other ever since they were kids, lived in the same neighbourhood and their parents were family friends. My mom was friends with my dad’s younger sister, and according to my dad, she spent a lot of time at his house and always sat beside him during dinner parties. There were also a lot of shy glances at one another, but the timing was never right and my dad didn’t ask my mom out till the end of high school. When he finally asked her out, my mom accepted right away. They got married 2 years later and had 3 kids. Fast forward 50 years and all 3 of us are married with kids of our own, 8 grandkids in total.

We had a wonderful day as a family, although it started off quite comical. We were all supposed to meet at a lovely park to take some family photos, but my parents, the guests of honour, went to the wrong park. So, half an hour went by and we had to get started without them. Luckily, they finally found their way to the same park we were all at. It actually made the day more memorable and we had a fabulous photographer that made the best of the situation.

We had some good laughs over the miscommunication during dinner at a local restaurant. There were so many moments where I stepped back to see everyone’s smiling faces. It felt really good to see everyone together having such a wonderful time. The evening ended back at my brother’s place for some tea and coffee and a dessert made with love.

  1. Hazzlenut + cheesecake!? You really are trying to kill me! Stopping by from the Merry Monday linky party! Thanks for sharing! -Treana @ houseofbennetts.com

  2. This looks stunning and it’s such a simple recipe! Bookmarking it for an event I have coming up. When you crush the Oreos do you include the creamy bit in the middle? I’m in the UK so it’s not that easy to find all the variations you have in Canada.

    • I used Oreo baking crumbs, it comes in a box, already crumbled and no cream filling, you should be able to find it in the baking section beside the graham cracker crumbs , any chocolate baking crumbs would work too, let me know how it turns out for you:)

      • I don’t think I will find that here so will have to see what I can sub it with…how genius that you can buy them ready crumbed! I will let you know how it goes!!
