Mum was 60 on the 1st of this month. And she was away for the week with Dad on one of their 4WD jaunts, and so organizing something special got pushed back to today which tied in nicely with Nan's 82nd birthday which was on Saturday. So what does one organize to make the occassion special? A ride in a 10 seater stretch limo or as Grace called it, "the BIG car!" All we told her was 10.30am by her mailbox. So we all piled in, Mum, Dad, Ad, 5 kids and I!
Then we zoomed down to Nan's place to pick her up. I think Nan is getting used to the limo lifestyle as she was in one back in January for a do arranged by my cousin, she settled back on the seats quite comfertably! It was certainly a ride I could get used too, very plush and comfy in the back. The kids where waving at everyone, despite Aunty Ad telling them "they can't see you, the windows are tinted!" Milly was absolutely fasinated by the mirror panal inside where she could see herself and did action nursery rhymes the whole trip home!
After we picked up Nan we went to Kings Park to a kid friendly cafe they have there. That way Nan could sit quietly and the kids could burn off some energy. We had lunch there and stayed for a few hours and then hopped back in the limo to do home! As you do!! We stopped on the way to have a group photo taken, the first shot in this post, and beside the working men of the family missing, its a great shot! Everyone looking at the camera, how often does that happen??
Then it was time to go back home. Everyone was tired and cranky. Grace kept poking Cate. Oliver pulled his loose tooth out. Stu was in the front seat chatting non stop to the driver. Milly, well I caught her watching herself pick her nose in the mirror! Happy Birthday Jules! We hope you had a lovely day as much as we did!
