Last Sunday it was my Grandpa's 80th Birthday and we went over to a garden party at their house. There were about 20 of us there, and it was a really lovely celebration. The sun shined the whole day, the food was lovely and Mads was the star of the show as she is the only little person on this side of the family.
I adore my Grandparents and am very close to them both- I am very lucky we only live about twenty minutes away from them so we go over for dinner most weeks. I also feel very lucky that Mads gets to know her Great-Grandparents and they love her to bits.
They live on a big farm in the middle of nowhere, and it was a beautiful setting for the party. I have such fond memories of growing up having fun there, and I hope to give Mads some memories too. All in all it was a great day and we had a lovely time. Here is some of the hundreds of photos I took that day.
Not a bad view from your garden.
Mads loves feeding Grandma's 'big fish'. I think they are Koi Karp possibly but as soon as she gets there she asks to feed them. We count new ones every time but I think there is about 19.
Mads was on the go non stop all day- she missed her usual nap but that didn't stop her as there was just too much to do!
We did some cruising in our new wheels that Grandma (my Mum) bought over especially.
We had some laughs.
We cuddled with Grandma.
We shared ice cream with Great Grandpa the birthday boy!
We played in the pretty flowers.
We all ate cake.
