Here's a bit of what that big post covered. The ongoing celebration of C's birthday. Can you guess how old he was? He helped to decorate the cake with some of his favourite lollies and treats - marshmellows, smarties and bananas.

This year we celebrated with dinner at our local Italian Restaurant (Birthday boy's choice) with family and friends. Lots of fun and no cleaning up for me :)
But that was just the start of C's birthday. On the weekend he celebrated with four of his special mates from school who came for a sleepover. Yep, I am mad! I had a house full of silly, crazy, hyperactive little boys for 18 hours straight! Exhausting but fun.
And C had a blast which is what is important. I don't think he'll forget his 7th birthday any time soon.

Recovering from C's sleepover took me days! But late in the week I went down to the Mornington Peninsula to visit my cousin for a few hours. We had a lovely catch-up which included lunch at a local cafe. I also got to see the almost completed masterpiece quilt which she's been working on for over a year! These photos don't do it justice....it is amazing! All those little diamonds, so perfectly pieced. I am in awe! It just needs the binding to be added and then it is ready to put on the bed. It is a work of art that I'm sure will become a treasure family heirloom.
The following day I spent some time watching J's final school swimming session for the year. It was mostly just a fun session with lots of games. They even got to have a go on the big inflatable obstacle course.

C had a momentous event on Sunday with the loss of his second tooth. The toothfairy made her visit that night. Lucky she remembered! She hadn't been when we went to bed at midnight!
The boys enjoyed doing this big jigsaw puzzle with Daddy over the weekend. Lots of fun, interesting facts about Australia and New Zealand were found on this great puzzle. Playing and learning. Awesome!
