The 3rd Birthday Celebration

This last fortnight has been eventful, several birthdays and Father's Day have seen a lot of activity. Although our youngest celebrated her birthday Monday we decided to bring friends and family together this weekend due to other commitments.

The day started with our television which we planned to use as the music source decided to leave us for a better place. Not sure what actually went wrong but this morning it just refused to turn on, even with changing the fuse and power supply. We were able to replace it with the television set from the bedroom so only a minor disruption.

Other than that the day was a success, I personally felt that the highlight was playing 'Pass the parcel, with Dizzee Rascal' at a children's birthday. The bouncy castle was great value and everybody got involved at least once. We also had a pinata but it was so tough to break that eventually it took a rolling pin to unleash what was inside!

The weather forecast had painted a disappointing picture for the day with heavy rain showers predicted. Instead of organising a barbeque we opted to prepare a buffet but the weather held out and we had a really enjoyable afternoon. There was a brief shower for five minutes in the evening but by then the majority of people had made their way home with their children. Tomorrow we have another birthday celebration to attend and then we have some fresh air for a few weeks before the next birthdays are upon us again [I think anyway :)]Birthday
