The Garden Party!

The day arrived, & the sun shone.
There was, it has to be said, a fair amount of tea drinking..
Who's 18 then?

There was some posing....
& Cup Cake eating...
Then we thought we should do some decorating for the party....

But we all couldn't resist a Birthday ride in Bertie, Good old Mr D took us around for a spin. We even stopped for ice cream!

Kirstin then persuaded Mr D (not that he needs much persuading to get the bike out) to take her out on his big motorbike, it was her first go on this one, she has been on his smaller one a couple of years ago, but was obviously feeling brave.

After that it was time for us to leave the youngsters to it, (get me i'm soooo old) i didnt get a pic of the lanterns & tea lights all lit as we weren't there when it was dark, but i am told they looked lovely & pretty.

I did manage to steel this pic of the chinese lanterns being lit though :)
(anyone had these? A friend had one and it got stuck in her tree & set fire to it, the fire brigade had to come out! I've also heard that coastguards hate them as they can be mistaken for distress flares..)
The weather is great here at the moment, ice cream making is at full throttle!!


  1. Looks like fun.

    They often set those lanterns off at Aldeburgh Carnival when the fireworks are going off. I do think they look really pretty.

  2. Looks like such a fun time, great pictures!
