The Birthday Girl receiving her Birthday Bumps
The cakes we stored in our hotel room overnight - too tempting by farAnd the table decorations reflecting the beauty of the day.
Happy Birthday, Rosie!
Happy Baptism, Christina!
Happy Anniversary, Tina and David!
A happy extended family and happy guests from all over the country (and one flying in from Berlin, thus neatly trumping friends and family trekking cross country from Cornwall and Newcastle).
A busy week beforehand for the Birthday Family, and a busy week ahead with the first appointment just a couple of hours away now. But all that paused for a couple of days, and whilst it cannot possibly have been in any way shape or form restful (except potentially for the smallest sister, who slept beautifully under a table in the food room), I am sure they feel the effort was worthwhile, to gather so many people who love them, to celebrate something really positive.
