For my birthday eve we headed into the city to meet up with dear friends at the state library’s Children’s Book Festival.
A picnic on the lawn, juice being made by a bicycle powered blender, petting zoo, crafts, a fire engine, children running with friends, face painting and celebrity appearances by Batman (cue crying children) and Spot, followed by an afternoon tea of churros and milkshake. Oh yes, we did it up right.
My actual birthday is being spent wrangling slightly feral children (threenager and Ollie in quite the mood), eating icecream and watching my favourite Glee episode (season 3 ep 10 Yes/No) while Thommo gardens with the Thomlets. Tonight we’re off to my mum’s for dinner and cake (hummingbird with cream cheese frosting, my very favourite cake, she makes it every year and she made it for our wedding too).
Head over to Sazz’s for more photos from birthday eve!
