Birthday Picnic

26 August 2014

Last Friday, I turned 29.
You would assume that after celebrating 28 birthdays, the novelty would wear off. Never!
It's no secret that I love birthdays and this year was no different (although without my hubs being here, I was very tempted to cancel!) but he made it in the nick of time.

This is my first birthday in our new home, and I decided that it would be a good idea to host a small birthday party at our home. And thanks to our beautiful garden, I decided on a birthday picnic.
It was a hit!

I hired a few lawn games: bowls, croquet, giant Jenga and giant snakes and ladders, ordered little picnic goodies for boys/girls picnic boxes and filled a wheelbarrow with beers for the boys and Pimms on tap for the girls. We also couldn't have asked for better weather - a perfect afternoon in our Winter sunshine.

Thank you to everyone for coming and making my 29th birthday so special.
I cannot wait to turn 30!!
