How did this happen?
kid is so awesome. He's such a caring and considerate boy and we
couldn't have asked for a better first born and big brother. He is
smart and funny and we adore him.
We started the big day with present opening (in the birthday hat)...
Streamers on his bedroom door...
choice of birthday dinner...yep, he chose vegetarian sausages and
mashed potato stew (mashed potato, steamed veg and gravy). There's no
way to make this meal photogenic so I didn't even try.
Ice cream cake...
Oh and our car had a birthday makeover as well...
Saturday we had a trip to Shepparton. Louis invited his friend James
along as well. Poor Michael had hurt his back through the week so I was
on my own with 5 kids! Therefore, I have only a few photos because it
was a busy day! We had lunch at Hungry Jacks followed by a play and
train ride at the SPC Ardmona Kidstown playground.
It was such a hot day! We followed that up with a visit to Aquamoves
which was a heap of fun for the kids. I didn't even take my camera in
but the facilities are great! Quite a challenge with one set of adult
eyes and 5 kids in water though...
It was so much fun celebrating our big 9 year old!
