Internet problems, plus a preoccupation with preparing for the Cruise ships, has been interfering with my blogging lately. I thought I should record William's 3rd birthday party before he turns 4!
As usual, Kim and Chales went to a great deal of trouble to create a day of fun and enjoyment for kids as well as family and friends.
When the guests were about to arrive, there were a few spots of rain, but a verse or two of "Rain, rain, go away" did the trick!
It was a Pirate party. Some of the grown ups looked a lot scarier than the kids!
And plenty of pirate food.
There was a paddling pool in the shape of a pirate ship, complete with water cannons!
This was the first time many of the guests had met Jasper, just six weeks old.
He was smothered with love, especially by William, who is looking forward to having his own baby brother in July.
All the kids played really well together
Meanwhile the grown ups and older kids were having a wonderful afternoon too!
At the end of a big day, what better than a cuddle with Aunty Rae?
