In honour of Mum's 60th birthday, we gathered for the weekend at a holiday house in Mount Martha they'd rented. Mum and Dad were both very appreciative we'd been able to attend but really, give me free accomodation and those views and I'm there! ;)
We barbequed and battled over Articulate on Friday night, with a rematch Saturday morning. (2 time winner, thank you very much!) We wandered down to the shops for a lazy lunch, napped and lazed on the beach.
Jenna and Darren had to head home, but we were joined by my aunty and family friends for dinner on Saturday. Mike and I fed everyone pizza and chocolate mousse cake.
After packing up Sunday Mike and I spent a little longer wandering on the beach, not quite ready to head home. Such a wonderful, relaxed, meandering weekend.
Festivities continued on the Tuesday night, Mum's actual birthday, as we joined family friends (different ones) for dinner at Mum and Dad's house. After Happy Birthday was sung and cake consumed, the kids played outside with some sparklers.
I joined in of course. :)
Dad had suggested a banner for the occasion, so I made this one with my Silhouette Cameo. Letters are about 6 inches high, using the Bebas font, and I just ran them through my sewing machine. It's a little fiddly to make, but not difficult. Cost effective too.
Happy 60th Birthday Mum! Hope you enjoyed the celebrations.
