Birthday Party

Jack has had the best day today. 5 of his best friends and his family and our friends all came to play for an afternoon party. We spent hours baking and setting up chairs and shopping but it was all worth it. It was a perfect sunny day and not a cloud in the sky. We are lucky it was only 29C today because it has been up to 37C this week.

The kids enjoyed The Night Garden cake and not one of them noticed the lumpy parts of the icing which caused me so much stress. They all took a character home. When Jack saw his cake yesterday he said 'TWO' and we later caught him testing the flavour. (There was some patch work to be done.)

Jack loved showing off his new train table and cubby. His friends bought such wonderful gifts, he spent half the time opening a present here and there. His Grandpa came all the way from China yesterday and had some stories to tell and Robyn came from Melbourne to stop by with her lovely girls.

If I close my eyes - I wish this could last forever.

Some lumpy parts in the icing but it was very tasty.
